Josée Bisaillon grew up in Saint Hyacinthe, Québec, Canada. Rather than follow in her father's footsteps as a veterinary surgeon, she chose to cut animals from paper; they were colorful, low maintenance, and always in fine health. Today her illustrations, a mixture of collage, drawings, and digital montage, take us into a world so richly detailed and multidimensional that you'd hardly think it all came out of only one person's imagination. Bisaillon's have won the Applied Arts Illustration Award and LUX Illustration Awards in Québec, and she was a finalist for the 2008 Governor General's Literary Awards in Canada.
To the amateur, photography is recreation; to the professional, it is hard work, and to Fernando Ceja, it is both. At the forefront of Dallas product and fashion photography, Fernando is inspired by his cross-cultural perspective. With the rise in popularity and demand for video fashion films, Fernando keeps up with the advancement of technology and trends by shooting fashion in moving images. Fernando’s command of superior lenses and handheld camera work result in a natural shift from photographer to director of photography. Fernando travels frequently between Mexico City and Dallas, Texas, where he resides with his wife and son. In between assignments, he can be found cruising Texas highways on his motorcycle.
