Photographers and Artists

Lynn Crounse: I am an explorer. My inspiration comes from all directions and sources. I make do with what crosses my path. I love the lives and places I encounter and document the world as I see it, striving only to capture the beauty in all of my subjects. I also do assignment and commercial photography work. Currently, I’m based in Virginia and travel as often as possible. To view more images visit my website.

Jonathan Plotkin: Jonathan graduated from George Washington University in 1976 with a BA in Political Science, and in 1980 earned an MBA in Strategic Planning from Northeastern University in Boston. After 20+ years in commercial real estate, Plotkin elected to follow his childhood dream of devoting as much time as possible to his freelance career as a professional illustrator and cartoonist. With the inauguration of, the wish is fulfilled!

John Tomasko: John’s first published photos were of the Bastille Day Waiter/Waitress Run through the streets of York, PA. John travels around the United States almost constantly. When he finds something interesting, he sends back photos for Transition Voice.
