Ana Homonnay was born and raised in Sao Paulo, Brazil, where she received her degree in film. For five years she worked for MTV, directing documentaries where she traveled throughout Brazil searching for adventure and natural beauty. Still photography was always an essential visual component to the development of each episode’s narrative. In 2002, Ana left her native city and packed her cameras for California where she embarked on the next phase of her photography career. Born and raised in Arkansas, Ashley grew up connected to the art world through art classes, art museums and artists in the family. Art was a priority in her house and not forgotten when she pursued her degree in Art History. A love for the American landscape and road trips, pushed Ashley to pick up her camera and document her vision of the USA. Ashley started shooting professionally in 2007. Ashley and Ana formed Thompson Homonnay in 2014. As a photography duo, Ana and Ashley are passionate storytellers who obsess over the magic of childhood and adolescence. As a creative team based in San Francisco, they develop storyboards that are both detailed and "no-fuss", and on-location, they generally let their subjects "do their thing" with just a bit of coaching and direction. This approach leads to authentic photographs that feel personal and soulful, helping brands develop rich connections with their target audience.
