SAMANTHA GARUFI- Overall Samantha Garufi is a very talented an inspiring Photographer who not only takes a portrait of someone but capture’s the true essence of their soul for a second with a single picture. Samantha feel’s it is unessential to waste time taking millions of pictures for that one great shot but instead captures the best photo every single time in a million pictures. Samantha Garufi was born on April 15th, 1992 in Cold Spring New York. Ever since she was a young child she could remember playing with cameras and enjoyed taking photos, but her passion really started with photography after she bought her first digital camera when she was 13 years old. All together she would mostly just take pictures of her friends and pets. But it wouldn’t be until a lot of people started noticing and commenting on how well her photos looked, that she realized the true potential of her real talent and it was becoming more then just a hobby to her; that’s when she started to pursue it further. Once graduating high school she enrolled herself in Dutchess Community College to study and master visual arts photography. That’s where she had a chance to meet Mickey Walker the CEO and original founder of HQ’s Finest Production’s & Enterprise and started working with them on her career.

NEIL WALKER- Overall Neil Walker is one of the most intuitive and creative talented concept artist to ever touch a pencil, not only because he pulls pure originality out of his imagination to the canvas but he brings the work literally to life on every piece. Neil feels it is the most essential to take the time to not only create but to put your soul and heart into every piece he creates. Neil Walker was born in Poughkeepsie New York on March 2, 1992 to a large family of six. The earliest Neil could ever remember drawing is in Kindergarten, him and fellow classmates were creating their own action figures out of paper from popular games at the time including Mario 64, Mortal Combat and anything else that sparked there interest. Since then Neil has been drawing all of his life, no matter upon the subject or who wanted the art, he would continuously explode on the canvas over and over for millions of different unique pieces. From there on then Neil would embellish himself into the deep details of artwork found every where’s including on Goosebumps books, Comic books, and in graffiti. That’s when the light clicked in his head and he ultimately decided that no matter he wanted to draw whether it as an illustrator, comic book artist, or cartoonist as a career. It wouldn’t be until he reached 6th grade where he finally realize that he wanted to take his passion and talent to another level and started seeking out schooling to develop as an artist. That’s when Neil enrolled himself in every art course offered from Middle school to High School, and is currently in his second semester at Dutchess Community College for his major of visual art’s drawing.
