I was part of a collectively produced documentary film called Exit 426: Watsonville made by UCSC students that won the best Student Produced Film at the 2012, Santa Cruz Film Festival.

Tara has an amazing eye for the shot and is open about what she's going for in a shot and she'll make sure it matches up with your desires as well. She's extremely helpful in positioning and adjustments are fast and intuitive with her direction. I would love to have all of my pictures taken by her.


Working with Irina was easy from start to finish. She gave good direction and tried a number of different poses. I didn't know how the photos would turn out, but she has a good eye and knows how to bring out the best in the subject. I was more than pleased with the photos.


Lin gave me a very wonderful experience! She is very nice and patient to me, and advised me lots of poses. I am surprised by her professionalism and like the photos very much!


Chen Lin is very interest in and good at taking pictures. She is very professional on the photograph. She could always find photographing angle and presenting many stunning photos for us.


Sina was great. A true professional. We have just started a new business and we're on a budget. I discussed all of that, he asked what I was looking for and what sort of price range I had in mind and he would work with me and was more interested in the work then to hassle. Highly recommended.


I was very happy with my portraits. Marcus captured very well who I am as a person, and the imagery fit my personality.  I also think Marcus is a craftsman in his trade, and his attention to detail - body positioning, facial expression, highlights, shadows, exposure... is A+ in my book!!!


Sina has photographed our wedding events and has always been fun, and very professional. He turned our photographs around in the matter of a couple days. His equipment is also very professional (no shutter sounds when taking pics was great). He was on time and engaged with us just the right amount.


I am extremely happy with the photos Lin took of me! She has great ideas for poses and angles! She is very professional and prepared. She brought some sophisticated accessories to increment the pictures. I received many compliments for the pictures. I would totally recommend her! She is the best!


Jennifer was absolutely amazing and a true artist. You can tell she loves photography. She knows exactly the best angles and shots to bring out the best! Highly recommended!


Jennifer ran several photo shoots for my clothing brand. With professionalism and creativity she managed to highlight the product in the best way possible. I could not be happier with the result. It is a joy to work with her, always contributing ideas and going for the extra mile!


It's been great being portrayed by Jennifer. She's extremely kind and makes you feel really comfortable. Extraordinary all her work. That's why I chose her and I'll definitely choose her again.


I truly love Jenniffer's work. She is brillant, very professional, simple and easy going. She did the photoshoot for my new menu and they turned up just like I wanted. She helped me turn my ideas into reality, with great aesthetic eye and always taking in consideration what i wanted.

Tiffany O, San Jose Photographer

Tiffany O

How did you get started with photography?

I have always been fascinated by cameras. Growing up, my dad had a huge collection of antique cameras. When I turned six, he gave me my first camera, and ever since then I've been hooked.

What type of shoots do you enjoy doing the most?

I most enjoy taking photographs at special events because there are always special moments that can be captured and remembered forever. A quick glance at a lover. A hand hold. A child's joyful grin. These are moments that are worth remembering.

What are some of your favorite places in San Jose to take photographs?

My favorite place to shoot is located a bit south of where I live -- in Monterey, California. There is always so much going on - from the historical Cannery Row to the popular Monterey Bay Aquarium. There are an endless amount of shots you can take, and the small seaside city is bustling with action if you look for it.

Gus O, San Jose Photographer

Gus O

How did you get started with photography?

After studying filmmaking for years, my friend who was a rather infamous street photographer, managed to get me out of the world of videography, and into the streets with him taking photos. Initially it was a different art form, but over time, the ability to capture a moment really won me over. I've been obsessed with taking photos ever since.

What type of shoots do you enjoy doing the most?

I really enjoy doing client shoots with brands, especially if it's well planned. Seeing mood boards, sketches, and ideas come to life makes the challenge worth it. It brings out my creative juices, and the work of designers, photographers, and models all coming together is really inspiring to see.

What are some of your favorite places in San Jose to take photographs?

My absolute favorite place to take photos has to be Greenwich Park in London. There is such a calmness about the park which is a refresher to many people in the big city, yet the background of the skyscrapers and city lights contrast the airy, calm, and green environment that is the park. The architecture, layout, and colors around the park make for a visually pleasing and calm environment that is great for taking photos.
