Photographers are what make our world go round. Our community is made up of more than 60,000 passionate photography partners who are keen on sharing their love of photography with others. That’s why, every month, we showcase a few members of the community in our In Focus series. Here’s a sneak peek of their stories:  


Kira Vygrivach

Kira Vygrivach, a Moscow native who initially specialized in Artificial Intelligence, fell in love with photography. "One day, I decided to leave it all behind to make a living from my passion." Specializing in portrait work and documentary video, she has been partnering with Meero for more than a year. 

"The fact that the edits are automated gives me more time to devote myself fully to taking pictures."

Todd Feeney  

Todd Feeney has not spent the majority of his career as an official professional photographer. But from waiting ten hours to get the perfect shot of fireworks over the Brooklyn Bridge in 1983 to doing real estate photography in the East End, it is safe to say he has always had a passion for it. In September 2018, this self-taught photographer joined the Meero community. 

"It’s really just being able to set my own schedule and not having to do so much from a sales perspective. The work comes to me."

Vincent N Van

Vincent N Van Photographer

Vincent, 32 years old, has been passionate about images since he was a child. He began his career as a director at an early age in 2008, and later as a photographer. This self-taught artist studied with the first DV cameras of the time and then perfected his skills with SLRs and digital hybrids. He has been living his passion full time for 2 years now. 

"I see it more as an opportunity. Meero is not here to make our work more complicated than it is. On the contrary, it is there to make it easier."

Sigried Duberos

Sigried, a self-taught photographer, is now a passionate entrepreneur with 10 years of experience. Through her work, she has built a solid network in the field of photography and music. Today, she continues to photograph artists at concerts and festivals, while complementing her activity with Meero.

"For my part, things are going very well. I have had assignments for which I have been better paid than if I had done them in the domain of concert photography. Honestly, I don't regret joining the platform, it' s very beneficial for me, especially in terms of compensation."

Edgar Castaneda 

Edgar Castaneda

Like many artists, Edgar Castañeda was drawn to photography from an early age but didn’t get the chance to fully explore it until later. Now at 34, he’s been practicing his craft for four years and has been shooting gigs with Meero for over a year.

“I made the decision to leave my “safe job,” seniority, benefits, work stability… I turned it all in for a camera and lenses, venturing into photography full time at 31 years old.”
