Business Photographer specializing in corporate and editorial photography.
We specialize in corporate and editorial photography as well as storytelling photography for our clients. Ed Carreón is a Los Angeles photographer with over 25 years of experience and a life long commitment to the art.
Collaborating with corporate communication and design communities, we create still photographs for editorial and corporate branding projects, corporate sustainability reports, web content and corporate image libraries. Ed is also known for creating dynamic content and evocative portraits for clients with high stakes projects.
He is a full-stack, production photographer who’s work with communication and design groups has earned him clients including Gilead Sciences, Acura, National Geographic, Discovery Channel, Forbes, New York Times, USC, Cedars Sinai Hospital, Amgen, Pratt and Whitney, Owens Corning, PIMCO, Chivas Regal, CVS Pharmacy, Chase Bank, Herbal Life, Life Magazine, Red Cross, Target Corp., Valspar and Transdev . He understands that his clients are not seeking just a photographer but rather someone who brings creative intelligence to the table, fixes problems before they happen, understands corporate etiquette, and possesses advanced digital and production skills. Large clients want someone who foresees issues, can turn on a dime and work across multiple genres of photography including business lifestyle, narrative, architectural and healthcare photography. Ed’s photographic skills give him an edge in solving problems and executing the client’s vision.
For example, Prologis needed a commercial photographer in Los Angeles to create images of their facilities at Los Angeles International Airport. Ed was hired to shoot the project, but conditions on the ground made his job impossible to shoot as planned. He needed to shoot a cargo plane with the active loading facilities in the background but the cargo schedule did not allow for this, and the plane would not return in time to meet his deadline. Ed shot the planes then came back the next day to shoot the buildings and then assembled the images in post production.
Likewise, another client recently asked Ed to do a two day shoot involving a medical product shoot in studio and an outdoor lifestyle shoot at a local park in the middle of August. Given that temperatures can be near 100 degrees and the client's designer was proposing shooting without a permit, Ed notified the client of the risk of shooting without a permit and the potential disaster of subjecting a crew and cast to exteme temperatures. Consequently the client saw Ed's logic and the shoot was shot early in the mornings in different locaitons with permits.
Similarly, Ventura foods was looking for a photographer to shoot some of the chef's prepping food in their developeent kitchen for a branding and marketing campaign. Then, after creative meeting they asked if I could shoot some industrial images in their production facilities as well as business lifestyle images in their corproate facilities. We said yes of course and lots of examples to show them. The one day assignement turned into three days that met recruitment campaign needs as well as marketing and content needs. The three day photography assignment had us working long hours covering with a seamless workflow across multiple generes of photography. This is how they maitained a branding consistancy across the whole campaign.
We add value to the client’s vision without friction because we know that the work is not about us, but about the success of the project.
Shaping our client’s expectations is critical before beginning photography projects, so we are careful to inform our clients what is possible given the photographic conditions and resources for the photography project.
When the work is critical and you need a high degree of certainty for your project, there are few photographers in Los Angeles that can knit together photographic, social, technical and production skills to give you to certainty you seek.
