Nolan Hall: Growing up surfing the beaches of Southern California, Nolan found an amazing opportunity to shoot and capture a lifestyle that would define his photography. Looking thru his catalog of photos is a glimpse of “The Day In The Life of Nolan Hall.” They are not tried, but genuine, just a bunch of good friends enjoying laughs and hanging out, and Nolan is there to capture those moments. Having worked at RVCA when ANP Quarterly was in its beginning stages, gave him an amazing opportunity to work alongside such artists as Aaron Rose, Barry McGee, Ed Templeton and many others. Working with such well established artists gave Nolan a unique opportunity to help his own photography career develop in a professional and sophisticated style. He currently works in Vans’ marketing department as the surf program’s team manager. Instagram: @nolannow Twitter: @nolan__hall

Grant Hatfield: Grant Hatfield is a Southern California native who currently resides in Long Beach, CA. His natural habitats include: the beach, the streets, skate parks and thrift stores. Grant is happiest when he is lurking with his camera, going to shows, surfing, skateboarding and when he’s with his girlfriend and muse, Ashley. Instagram: @Insta_Grant

Dennis McGrath: Los Angeles-based photographer Dennis McGrath was born in 1969. Classically trained in black-and-white photography, McGrath prints most of his work by hand in the darkroom. As a skateboarder in the mid 1980s, Dennis McGrath was drawn into photography and that eventually led to a decade-long career shooting for major skateboard publications worldwide. In 2004 he began shooting on the sets of adult films, documenting behind-the-scenes from his outsider’s perspective. A portion of this work was published in his limited edition book titled “Theatrical Properties” (Super Labo, Japan). His work has been exhibited in San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York and London. He recently spoke with us about his Virgin America commission and his preference for shooting with film. Instagram: @dennis_mcgrath
