Born in the Bronx, New York, on June 1, 1916, Irving Haberman became one of the preeminent news photographers of the 20th century. His illustrious career spanned nearly 50 years (1936-1985), including 35 years at CBS. With a breadth of work astonishing for just one man, his collection features more than 10,000 negatives and vintage prints, covering some of the most celebrated personalities and defining moments of his era, together with the struggles, aspirations, and triumphs of ordinary people. Haberman won more than 70 awards during his career, including Photographer of the Year (1969) and a Lifetime Achievement Award (1991) from the New York Press Photographers Association. In 1995, Rizzoli published Eyes on an Era: 4 Decades of Photojournalism by Irving Haberman, featuring commentary from Walter Cronkite. The book launched in conjunction with a three-month exhibition at the International Center of Photography in New York City.

Abby Ross grew up in a small mountain town named Stowe, Vermont. Her love of photography came from observing her mother, a talented and successful photographer in her own right. As a child, Abby spent hours at a time rummaging through drawers of her mother’s loose prints, and remembers taking naps in the dead of winter on the floor of her dark room. Abby started picking up her own camera upon moving to San Francisco in 2002. She found herself taking long bus rides downtown and was astounded by the amount of characters and stories she passed by on any given ride. She wished for them to go by in slow motion so she could somehow record the scenes. After transferring to art school, she learned that her vision could be developed into a style, and her personality could infiltrate her photographs. Today, Abby and her sister Lauren are two of the most sought after wedding photographers in Los Angeles, specializing in destination weddings. IH Images is proud to offer a selection of images taken by Abby and Lauren during recent shoots in Santa Monica, California, and Boca Raton, Florida.

Lainie & Michael Tarter
Lainie and Michael each grew up in New York, but have lived in Los Angeles, California since 2001 and 2005 respectively. They have been married since 2009. Michael Tarter is the grandson of award-winning photographer Irving Haberman, yet both he and Lainie share a love of photography. More than 20 images taken by the couple have been selected by IH Images for representation, highlighted by the amazing wildlife they captured during their March 2009 trip to South Africa in the world famous Sabi Sand Game Reserve. Forming part of the greater Kruger National Park, the reserve has no fences and wildlife such as lions, elephants, leopards, water buffalo, and others are able to traverse freely. Lainie and Michael used a Nikon D80 to capture their amazing images.

Lance Hansmann grew up in the quiet farming community of Steamboat Rock, Iowa. His childhood was divided between working part-time jobs for local farmers, including his grandfather, and playing basketball. His love for basketball took him all the way to the Big Ten, where he earned a spot as a walk-on for the Iowa Hawkeyes from 1989-1991. In 1992, Lance moved to Los Angeles, and his love for photographing people and places followed. He uses a Canon Digital Rebel XTi for a majority of his work on the beach as well as in and around the Los Angeles area. Approximately 15 of Lance's images have been selected by IH Images for representation. Lance lives in Santa Monica with his wife Tiffany and daughter Melissa.
