Artist: Buffy Snider

CEO and Co-Founder, Buffy has been interested in photography since High School. For her, photography and travel have always gone hand in hand. Starting with a year-long stay in Finland and a trip to Russia in her Junior year of High School, to her 2008 photo safari to South Africa and Swaziland. Her favorite location to shoot is Hawaii, where she averages 1000 pictures for each week-long trip. Buffy primarily uses a Nikon D60 and CoolPix, but also enjoys taking film pictures with her Minolta SLR.

Buffy is hoping to take Bear and Bee Creations to more international locations in the future, and to visit the last state on her US tour – Alaska.

Artist: Michael Caruso

CTO and Co-Founder, Michael has been interested in art since early childhood. He began drawing at an early age and took up photography in High School. Serving as staff photographer on college newspapers, he gained experience with the camera and in the darkroom, but his real interest lay in capturing nature through the lens.

His early works centered in New Jersey where he grew up, then spread through New England and south to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Since moving to Colorado 12 years ago, he has become an avid photographer of the Rocky Mountains and Southwest. Recently he has been exploring abroad with trips to Mexico and Costa Rica.

Michael primarily uses a Canon Digital Rebel XTi and Powershot 200. He started in film work using a Pentax K-1000 and, more recently, a Canon EOS Rebel SLR. He is looking forward to more travels in the future with Buffy, capturing more beautiful locations as he goes.
