Elaina Reuther


Elaina has lived in Silver Lake Ohio since she was two. She began photography after her brother gave his old Nikon to her. Elaina started taking photos of landscapes and dance shows that she was involved in. She finds a lot of her inspiration from other fellow Instagram creators and loves creating different colorful pictures with conceptual ideas, levitation photos and other creative photos. She recently became interested in taking portraits. One thing she loves about Ohio that it is full of little gems. She says Ohio is beautiful, not boring. Fun Fact: Elaina is adopted from China.

You can find more of her beautiful work here.

Jeffrey Stroup


Exploring and adventuring are more of a necessity than a hobby for Jeffrey Stroup. Since childhood he has had an insatiable need to see the nooks and crannies of the city, the paths less traveled, the forgotten and neglected. When he was sixteen he found a 35mm point and shoot camera on the side of the road. That lucky find eventually led to art shows and a photography business. Currently living in Cleveland, he spends most of his time exploring the miles of train tracks, abandoned buildings, the bridges, and even the tunnels beneath the streets. Traveling whenever and wherever, he always loves coming back home to Ohio where even after thirty-three years he is still finding new incredible places to photograph.

Raquel Martin


Growing up, Raquel Martin always had a deep passion to learn from and capture the beauty of her surroundings everywhere she went. She grew up in Berea and has since moved around to multiple cities here in Ohio and even a different state or two. However, she found herself back here, in her hometown. Appreciating the time and beauty surrounding her once again. Now, as a 21 year old painter and student.

She still keeps her young, carefree and curious passion alive with each adventure she takes and each photo she captures along the way. Raquel enjoys taking photos of the people she loves and of her adventures through Ohio's beautiful and one of a kind forests & parks. She says she loves those sweet moments and heartfelt sunrises & sunsets. She is always ready to seek a new journey and she appreciates the beauty we have around us right now, here in Ohio, in this very moment. She says Ohio will always be her home, no matter where life might lead her next.
