The Best Photography Submissions of 2015, by Lone Wolf Magazine

Looking back over the year, we’ve received a staggering amount of gorgeous photography submissions from talented photographers around the world. These are the images that made us swoon, and took our breath away throughout the year. Ironically, sometimes the images we like the most don’t make it into print for the simple reason that they don’t fit into our upcoming issue’s theme. Sigh. The editorials below seriously pained us not to print. And so, to bring in 2016 on a positive note, we wanted to tip our hats to the immensely talented photographers whose work blew us away in 2015. This is a tribute to all your hard work and perseverance, but most of all, to your incredible TALENT!

Kári Sverriss

Photographer Kári Sverriss is originally from Iceland, but has spent the last four years working as a fashion photographer in Hamburg. His work is sophisticated, and beautifully lit. We couldn’t love it more. We received this gorgeous spring-time editorial right in time for fall, and alas, has to pass up the opportunity to publish something so gorgeous.

Imke Panhuijzen

Dutch photographer Imke Panhuijzen shot and creatively directed this beautiful editorial with wardrobe stylist Elise Verhoeven, with help from hair and makeup artist Angelique Stapelbroek, and models Nina and Kiki, represented by Micha Models. The editorial is an amazing mix of polka-dots, fur, and lace and it just about killed us not to publish.

Norma Ilnicka

The colors in this editorial by Polish photographer Norma Ilnicka will make your mouth water. The use of light and shadow is incredible, and the richness of those pinks paired with a red-headed model makes for the most beautiful combination.

Lobke Leijser

This editorial by photographer Lobke Leijser (represented by House of Orange) featured one of the most striking models we’ve seen all year, Alice at Max Models. Between her ice-blue eyes and jet-black hair, she’s not a face you easily forget. Styling by Dieudonnee at HMS Amsterdam, hair and makeup by Marije Koelewijn at Angelique Hoorn.

Ren Pidgeon

This incredible editorial set in the Australian wilderness was shot by Melbourne based photographer Ren Pidgeon, and features model Elyse Knowles, and wardrobe styling by Paris Johnson. The images you see above are all cropped, so you don’t get the full impact of the vastness of the breathtaking scenery in this editorial. Ren’s work is cool, effortless and cinematic as hell.

For this editorial she teamed up with photographer Marcello Arena, and Model Svetlana Yufkina for a series of images that we so bursting with texture and color we couldn’t get it out of our minds all year.

Kristina Walther Lewis

Photographer Kristina Walther Lewis is one of our long standing favorite photographers, we’re literally never disappointed with her ethereal, sophisticated editorials. And this one is no exception. Soft rainbow light reflects off a nude and white palette, and features a model that’s probably a fairy princess from another dimension.

Laura Allard-Fleischl

UK based photographer Laura Allard-Fleischl teamed up with wardrobe stylist Alice Burnfield, hair and makeup artist Alice Oliver, and the incredibly androgynous Daniela @ Nevs for an editorial that’s equal parts edgy and whimsical. We were head over heels about the styling and location of this shoot, as well as the wind-swept quality of the photos.

Katie Thompson‘s work is rich with narrative, which is precisely why we love it so much. The vibrant vintage-ispired colors and impeccable creative direction just drips with narrative.
