Location: Los Angeles, CA

Piper Ferguson says her inspiration to be a photographer, director, and screenwriter comes from ‘80s fashion and the hyper-reality of MTV. Ferguson's images are edgy and soulful, and she's both toured with Iron & Wine and photographed artists at Coachella, South By Southwest, and the Winter Music Conference. Her accomplishments are many, both in and out of music photography, and it's because she has an immaculate ability to tell stories while doing what she loves.
