What you'll do

Since this style of photography only works in dim light, we can get started anytime after sunset. All you have to do is show up like it’s a normal photoshoot and I will do the rest. I can photograph females or males, couples, or groups. If you’re in the photo, you just have to be still for 1-3 seconds and I do the rest! I hide myself behind you and create a unique design with light while you strike a pose. Different colors, shapes, and even angel wings are possible.

I can even give you an opportunity to play around with some of the props and light painting tools so you can see for yourself how everything works.

Come to the Manhattan Beach pier where there are tons of spots to take these photos or I can meet you somewhere in Los Angeles.

If you’re a photographer and want to learn more about light painting, I can teach you the process and how to get the best images.

The photoshoot will take around 2 hours and I will share all the images on Dropbox so you can have immediate access. I can even print some 5x7’s from my photo printer if you’d like to leave with a physical copy.

I guarantee you’ll be hooked on light painting after this experience!

I’m a Manhattan Beach based photographer who specializes in the art of light painting and night portraits. I’m recognized as one of the industry leaders in the world in this space! I love creating surreal images with a variety of different light sources and high tech light painting tools.

I got started in night photography with steel wool spinning and progressed to all sorts of different styles of night portraiture. I love pushing the envelope of what is possible with this style of photography.

I love bringing this style of photography to others so much I created an interactive photobooth where me and a team of talented photographers perform this at events for hundreds of people.

Come join me for an unforgettable experience and let’s create some magic!

Where you'll be

The best spot for this type of photo is around the Manhattan Beach pier. We can meet at the end of the pier by the bike path and take photos on top of the pier, underneath the pier, near the water, and on lifeguard stands.

If you had a particular spot in Los Angeles in mind, we can discuss meeting there as well.
