It began in the cradle of so many great ideas: a coffee shop. Four friends with a passion for photography, a shared background in technology, and complimentary skills had a goal. They wanted to create an all-in-one Web solution for photographers – both amateur and professional – to organize, display, and sell their images with uncompromising quality.
To achieve this goal they surrounded themselves with talented people from a variety of professional backgrounds who had worked for the top database, computer OS, marketing, and graphics and imaging companies. Importantly, they all shared an interest in photography, with many even being professional photographers themselves.
Zenfolio is the best all-in-one solution for photographers to display, share, and sell their work online.
We became the best by making it our business to display every photograph with the same precision and attention to detail that went into making them. By channeling our passion to do this, we’ve created a viewing experience that is as impressive as the beautiful photographs displayed on our site.
As digital artists, our mission from the start was to build an online photography service that we would want to use ourselves. Now, nearly a decade later and with tens of thousands of photographers using Zenfolio every day to run their sites, we're still as passionate about what we do.
Every Zenfolio account includes unique organizational tools, an easy to use e-commerce platform, and customizable websites that let you store, sell, and show your photos in the best possible light. Our goal is to let you focus on what you love most… creating great photos. We'll take care of the rest.
Zenfolio is part of the Art.com Inc. family of brands. Together we’re making art accessible to all by transforming the way the world discovers, personalizes, shares and purchases art. Though our team at Zenfolio has many years of experience developing Web and desktop software, it’s our shared commitment to photography and delivering the premier photo website service that binds us together. That and our daily ritual of having coffee together, just like we did in the beginning.
Rachel Office Manager
Copyedit all marketing material, order office supplies, plan parties, and assist CEO, CFO, & marketing department with various projects.
Leon Brauer Customer Support Manager
I add the “fun” to “funky” and answer questions, too.
Why, of course, can’t you tell from way over there?
Once upon a time I loaded my own film from 100 ft. bulk rolls. No giraffes were hurt during this procedure.
Depends on the tide and wind bearings.
Anna QA Manager
I exterminate pests.
Ninjas - They are in a better physical shape, and their weapons are way cooler.
Brian B. Customer Support Manager
I assist on the webinars and am the lead forum moderator…all while providing witticisms and good-humored fun that helps keep the jive alive!
Ninjas all the way. The Pirates would never see them coming.
Kayla Case Graphic Designer
I help the creative team bring abstract concepts to life.
Yes of course
You would see double.
No smile, I’m all business.
Yanush Cherkis CFO
As part of my role, I touch many areas of the company, including finance, operations, human resources, customer support, and business development. It’s very meaningful and fulfilling.
Swirl, of course
Evan Customer Support Manager
I train the Zenmaster Ninjas.
Someone with comfy shoes.
Ninjas, because I trained them and we are prepared to deal with Pirates. But Trevor’s Zombies would give us a run for our Ninja money.
Michelle Chun-Hoon Marketing Manager
Oversee marketing projects and events.
there would be a lot of random giggling in the office
Stephen Daugherty Senior Software Developer
Bug stomping extraordinaire.
Absolutely yes, because they’re delicious!
Nikola Tesla to absorb some of his awesome.
Ninjas. Because parrots make for poor shields against throwing stars and intoxication tends to inhibit fighting skills…or does it?
Shanna Customer Support Manager
I giggle at almost anything said by fellow coworkers. Laughter is the best medicine and I work with some funny people.
Adam Customer Support Manager
I’m the first one up and the UK Rep
How about a hybrid: Ninja Pirates
Jesse Software Developer
If something is broken, and you didn’t break it, chances are it was me.
Yes. Especially if onion haters are around.
Either Scrooge McDuck or Richard Branson. Either one will do. Either way my chances of either traveling to the bottom of the Mariana Trench or doing a spacewalk are about 50/50.
Smile. Wouldn’t want anyone getting’ suspicious…
Alex Fedotov Cofounder and CIO
I make sure that the Zenfolio service is up and running; that our servers do what they are supposed to do, and that there are enough of them to do that.
My kids. They live in a great time.
No smile. Driving is a serious business. I also own a sports car.
Anne-Marie Friday Senior Graphic Designer
I translate ideas into pretty things.
YES! I’ve always thought the smell of sautéed onions should be a candle scent.
Swirl, best of both worlds!
No debate, ninjas.
Trevor Customer Support Manager
I am the only maker of marshmallows in our group.
Yes, with extra garlic.
Number of rolls by far.
Stacy Customer Support Manager
I keep everyone entertained by humming songs to myself and decorating my cube with handcrafted bobble head dolls of historical figures.
Yuck, stinky, no!
We had a baby giraffe on the ranch I grew up and his neck wasn’t very long so I’ll say film.
Swim fins, so I could glide through the water like a dolphin (I guess that mean’s I’d be a scuba diver).
Laura H. Customer Support Manager
I come with love and kitty stories.
As a kid: “Heck no!” Now: “Why, those yellow ones are tasty and sweet aren’t they?”
I would be like Steven.
Peter Hayes Director of Customer Support
Departmental advocate for kindness, success, and all things Zen.
The number of rolls of film I have shot.
No smile – I try to look as mean as possible.
Rebecca Customer Support Manager
Solving mysteries cross-legged.
All I can think is “Oh, my poor parents...”
Depends on what they're competing for. If it's who's better at accessorizing, I'm pretty sure pirates have an unfair advantage.
Jon Technical Support
Translate British English to US English and back!
I shot film for 28 years, so that might be a tad longer than a giraffe’s neck
Helga Kasperait Financial Controller
Making sure things stay organized and simple, even in the face of growing complexity.
Yes. Both for medicinal purposes and to eat them, raw and cooked.
VP of Product
Conceive, propagate, encourage, and nurture pure awesomeness.
Absolutely NO! (Sin Cebollo is my middle name). Just in case you did not hear. No onions. None. Nyet. Eww!
Swirl, but with a cherry on top.
Ninjas. Pirates would not see them coming.
Nataly Huff Marketing Director
I was lucky enough to start the marketing department here. Now, I’m even luckier to have a team of incredibly creative and talented individuals working beside me.
Definitely ninjas. While I fully support battle training with a bottle of rum in hand, I just don’t think it’s nearly as efficient.
Chess M. Customer Support Manager
I am the only person who comes in to work looking like a Power Ranger on a daily basis. So I will use my mighty morphin powers to defeat your customer support dilemmas!
...have layers. OK fine, no.
I do have a twin. Three of them, in fact (V-Twins, that is)!
Swirl! Like a ballerina!
Justin Miller Technical Evangelist
I have a department?
Yes, grilled and caramelized to perfection!
A really comfortable pair that I looked damn good in. I’m talking ten thousand dollar shoes here!
Ninjas! Them are sneaky by land, air, and sea.
Steven Customer Support Lead
I try to be a go-to person and help my teammates help our users. I also stay on top of our knowledgebase (to answer users’ questions) and try to aggregate CS data to help evangelize and suggest possible feature enhancements.
I plead the 5th.
If I had a twin (other than my currently existing twin brother), I would be flabbergasted and after that I would go get some ice cream.
If you are talking about lasagna, I choose tomato sauce, cheese and noodles. Why would anyone want vanilla or chocolate in a lasagna?
Denis Maher IT Engineer
Turning hardware to life.
Onions + lard + vodka = Yes, Russian Party!
My backup HDD with photos.
Jerome Nelson Software Developer
Code to bring memories to life.
Yes, “animal style” please.
Giraffe's neck. Film was history when I got into photography.
Doesn't matter; when pulled over neither would help.
'Sunee' Customer Support Lead
I use Zenfolio to run my child and family portrait photography business and get to share these tips and tricks with our users everyday.
No question, Chocolate!
Number of rolls of film that I have shot. My main focus in art school was alternative processes, which required the use of negatives and slides from film. I only started using digital in the last five years.
Alex Peyzner Founder & CEO
I wear more hats than most, and enjoy every one of them.
Definitely, Yes! They add flavor and texture to every meal, not to mention that grilled onions smell wonderfully delicious.
Swirl. It is too boring to be plain “vanilla” while chocolate is too strong of a flavor. I would also add a sweet cherry and finish with a shot of espresso. Who wouldn’t want dessert like this?
If ninjas were assassins for hire, and pirates ruled their own destiny, then definitely Pirates. But being stuck on a boat for months in a middle of an ocean with 50 bearded men? I don’t think so! So Ninjas!
Milana Pokras Accountant
Calculate figures using a traditional, secret recipe.
Aaron Senior Systems Engineer
My role is to make sure our systems are functioning at peak efficiency, the data is readily available to our users and customers, and the data is secure.
I’d have too much fun. There are quite a few situations that come to mind.
Pirates – A profession that pays really well and is highly regarded. Who doesn’t want to be a pirate?
Nicholas Customer Support Manager
I make our customers happy by adding some Samba to their lives.
Not even if I was on a desert island and had nothing else to eat.
he would be the second most handsome man in any room that I was in.
I never got a license, so I guess that’s a… draw?
Alex S. Director of Software Development
I work tirelessly to improve the experience for our users so that they always receive cutting edge new services.
Depends on what kind of pirates. Modern day or historic? I have to take the modern pirates over old ninjas.
Hari Simons Senior Product Manager
I bridge the gap between ideas and implementation, designing web and mobile products to help our photographers efficiently run their businesses and wow their clients.
Definitely the number of rolls of film.
Ian Stone Director of Business Development
I help us partner with other companies in the industry and strategize with Marketing to come up with campaigns that will be effective for both us and our partners.
Fried, Sauteed, or fresh. Bring it on.
he would be Danny Devito. That would make me Arnold Schwartzenegger, right?
Ilya Teplov Cofounder and CTO
I annoy people professionally.
Yes, but only as food.
Ketchup, mustard, and pepper!
Don’t know. In any case, my giraffe is longer than theirs.
Laura Tillinghast Photographer in Residence/User Loyalty
As a working photographer I relate to the business challenges facing our users and help to create and manage informative content for the ZenBlog.
Yes, bring on the onions!
Why choose? I love them all!
Definitely Ninjas, they are more sneaky and wearing black all the time is very slimming.
Ton Senior Software Developer
As the newest addition to the development team, I test the readability of the code, besides my own ability to read.
Sure, I’ll try growing them next year.
Swirl. More colors, easier to test my lenses.
The producer. This would surely be a huge box office hit. Just imagine all the explosions and martial arts involved.
Brian Tomlin Development Manager
Chief Foosball Engineer
Absolutely yes, the more onions the better.
Smile! I was ecstatic to receive my driver’s license at 16 and still love all things car related.
Zack Uribe Customer Support Manager
I am the Product Specialist for Mpix, MpixPro, and Miller’s Labs.
Giraffe’s neck. I only did three trips with film; I went digital early.
Pamela Vachon Customer Support Manager
I am the lone CS rep on the East Coast, helping to provide extended support hours to our customers worldwide, including Sunday :)
Smile! There was no line that morning!
Danielle Customer Support Manager
I am Ms. Passion for Fashion/ Karaoke Queen. I enjoy bringing a little air of flair to our customer service posse.
Only sautéed or caramelized.
Someone who wears Christian Louboutins in a size 8.5! That would be a dream! ?
