Need an editorial photographer in Los Angeles, California? We are it. Ed has worked for major magazines including: Fortune, Forbes, National Geographic, Time, New York Times, Life, US News, NewsWeek, etc.
The process is usually pretty simple for local editorial assignments involving portrait photography or photojournalism. After we arrive to terms and conditions we will contact the subject to discuss time, logistics and clothing while keeping the photo editor in the loop before and after shooting the photography assignment.
After editing and processing the pictures, we upload them to our website for review and selection, then optimize and do post production when necessary. The final images are delivered via FTP.
Local assignment areas include Los Angeles and Orange County, California as well as parts of Riverside County. Nearby cities include San Diego, Ventura and Santa Barbara , although assignments in Las Vegas and San Francisco can sometimes be shot on same day as travel
Most of our work is done on location but our small studio is located ten minutes from downtown Los Angeles so we are often available for last minute assignments. Our editorial fees are competitive with peers of equal merit and turn around time is usually pretty quick.

Why hire Ed instead of another photographer in Los Angeles?
Because he understands corporate and branding conventions. He knows that images which represent an institution are not captured on the fly - they are crafted to suit an aesthetic or a statement created by an art director, communications director, or creative director. Ed has worked as a commercial photographer for many years understands the nuances between news and branding campaigns.
His talent, broad range of skills, and twenty years of experience are available to you, and everything from his corporate portrait work to his personal work will come to bear on your project. Please compare his work to other professional photographers in Los Angeles and you will see the difference.
You wouldn't be hiring just any Los Angeles photographer or photojournalist who would simply record what he sees. You would be hiring someone who can contribute to the discussion, speak to your needs, and create a narrative or aesthetic to suit those needs. Because he can speak your language, he can add to creative solutions for branding, annual reports, and corporate image libraries. The end results will not look like everyone else's work.
There are times when the high production value associated with commercial photography isn't necessary. In these cases a portrait of record, a simple (simple corporate headshot), or an event photographer for basic event coverage is more appropriate. Ed can help in these situations as well. Please ask about seeing a web-based portfolio of event or headshot work.
