Altered Images Photography has been servicing clients in the Los Angeles area for over 20 years, and has won multiple awards. We are equipped to handle a wide range of shooting assignments.
Creating imagery has been my passion for as long as I can remember. Starting with my first Polaroid Land camera in 1970, which I still own, capturing images that inspire and attract interest has been my motivation as an artist. High school is where my photography started to develop into a style. I love bright and vibrant colors that pop off the medium and grab the audience. I fell in love with product photography then, and that love continues today.
In college, I dabbled in photojournalism, and as a staff photographer with the Daily Sundial at Cal State University Northridge, I had the opportunity to photograph President Ronald Reagan at his last campaign event. That led to a volunteer internship with the White House Press Office, and for the next 4 years, I worked with the President’s advance staff to help with his visits to Los Angeles. In the 80s and 90s, my photography ability grew exponentially. I had the amazing opportunity to shoot for the Friar’s Club and Universal Amphitheater, and shot many nationally televised music award shows.
After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts Degree, I opened my studio and throughout the years my work has been seen in national magazines, trade shows, television ads, and even on a billboard in Times Square. My client list is quite diverse and ranges from small mom-and-pop operations to industry giants like Sanyo, JVC, Sunkist Growers and Walt Disney Records.
My passion for studio photography continues today, however I don’t limit myself to the studio. I love to shoot on location as well. The many experiences I’ve had shooting for Popular Mechanics magazine and others has helped me grow as a location shooter, and I’m always up for the challenge whenever it arises. I have collaborated with many world-class creatives, and I believe that communicating is key when working with my clients.
