At Monogram, we’re constantly looking for inspiration from the creative community. Over the years, we’ve worked with countless artists, composers, photographers, filmmakers; you name it. That’s why, we’re starting a quarterly list of the top creators in their industry (in our mind). How do we judge it you might ask? Well, we go with our gut. After all, we are all creators in one way or another and we all have differentiating opinions on what ‘good’ art is.
It’s also important to note that we’ve partnered with some of these creators in the past.
Without further adieu, here is our list for this quarter…
Wedding Photographer & Creator, 600,000+ Followers, Youtube
Starting off the list, Taylor is simply a great human being. We’ve worked with him on multiple occasions now, and he always thinks thoughtfully about the content he creates for his community.
