camera Sony Alpha 7S II

Candid photography is my jam. I love capturing people and events that feel genuinely alive! My style of photography is more journalistic--I like to photograph people when they aren't aware of the camera and get to be who they truly are. Nat Geo was my inspiration growing up, and I try to apply a similar style to all of my work.

Mariano Baltazar was a skateboarder, and he was focusing on creating a sponsor video for his local skate shop Transitions. However, he was exhausted from getting hurt and after suffering a major injury that almost led to his leg getting amputated, he quit. As a result, he began photographing his friends skating and immediately fell in love with photography. A few months went by, and he reached out to his photogenic friend and photographed her. After one photo shoot, he knew this was what he wanted to pursue as a career. He is now represented by LovesickLA, and he has been an apprentice under Jose Cervantes. Jose is a professional photographer with more than 10 years of experience. Mariano is learning under his expertise, and he is learning the ins and outs of the fashion industry.

He became sought after to be the cinematographer on friends shoots. Before he realized what happened, he was becoming a full-blown cinematographer. 20+ years later, he amassed credits for theatrical feature films, theatrical documentaries, hundreds of commercials and music videos.

Sean Carline is an International photographer who brings exceptional knowledge and enthusiasm to every photo shoot. Committed to delivering promised results and remaining true to a unique artistic vision. He has been shooting professionally for 10+ years. Prior to that, he worked as a graphic designer. Even from a young age, he had a fascination with photographs. Why make photos or be a photographer? For him, it is to experience the world in a more connected, conscious, and appreciative way. Photography is an experience of looking at images and feeling a sense of gratitude, awe, inspiration, or emotional change. Also, photography is an experience of interacting with the world differently. For Sean, photography encourages him to wander, to explore, to look around, and talk to strangers. Photography is a creative outlet for him. Instant paintings. Instant art. Making photos makes his spirit feel uplifted. Taking photos helps him make social commentary and critique, which he hopes changes the hearts and minds of others in a positive way. Ultimately, he considers photography as a form of experiencing life in a much richer, vivid, and beautiful way. Photography is like salt, pepper, butter, and garlic for everyday living. He loves life, photography, and you.

I am a creative being, through and through. I credit my exposure in this industry to my parents, who are both creative directors. I grew up in photo studios working with models, stylists and other photographers, always aspiring to be a part of that world! Priding myself in being midwest raised and California washed- shortly after starting my own photography business in high school in Madison, WI, I moved to California. Seeking a school with an underwater program, I attended and received my Bachelor of Fine Arts for Photography at Brooks Institute in Santa Barbara, CA. With water in my veins, I derive my inspirations from fashion, traveling and scuba diving. Now located in Los Angeles or found on the beaches of the world, I am a strong believer that travel is the only thing you can buy that will make you richer.

Lou Baldanza is an LA-based photographer specializing in Headshot, Event, and Real Estate Photography. There are few times he leaves the house without some form of a camera in his hand or at the ready. Perpetually looking to capture as many of the raw and authentic moments of life and the people in it that he can, Lou's passion for photos came out of a pre-existing passion for filmmaking and storytelling with the moving image. He's since curtailed that propensity to slowing time down even further and focusing his creative energies on one frame at a time.
