The relaxed environment and passion he brings to set allows him to connect with his subjects intimately, drawing out personality and unorthodox performances.
I have been living and working as an editorial and commercial portrait photographer in San Francisco since 2006. After receiving my MFA in Photography from the Academy of Art, I started shooting for magazines, design agencies, tech companies, and dance companies.

Born and raised in Texas, Teal now resides in Los Angeles, California. With a keen eye for detail, color, and natural light, she creates original imagery with a true sense of place for clients across the genres of travel & lifestyle, landscape, architecture, and still life. The need to travel was instilled in her at a young age. Growing up in a family of architects, artists and travelers, she is grateful to have been immersed in an environment of creativity and curiosity from the start. Before she learned how to make a photograph, she learned how to be a traveler. Travel is when she is most engaged, most inspired and most challenged. Learning bits of a new language and culture, getting lost in winding cobblestone streets or narrow dirt paths, meeting local people, and taking in every element of a moment – sights, scents, sounds and feelings. This is when she is most alive. The camera allows her to capture and share these moments.
Photographer Joe Schmelzer might have taken an entirely different career path had it not been for Mohammad Ali.
While the bedrooms of his junior-high classmates were plastered with posters of Big Hair Bands and bigger-haired babes, not so Joe’s walls. Commanding the space above his twin beds hung only a framed black-and-white portrait of the history-making heavyweight — one of a limited edition signed by photographer Yousuf Karsh. Placed there by Joe’s father because (though "a solid investment") it absolutely did not go with the downstairs decor, the photo would impact Joe’s life more than anyone could have imagined: Under the shadow of The Greatest, Joe says, "Something just clicked." Nearly two decades later, Joe is an editorial and commercial photographer specializing in hotel, food, environmental and celebrity portraits…

Saam Gabbay believes we tend to associate ourselves with our skills while overlooking our superpowers, those core unteachable qualities that are at the heart of who we are and what we bring to the world. Skills? Saam has acquired them in abundance and applied them with extraordinary creativity in a career that has spanned from his time as a pioneering motion-graphics designer to his current—and often concurrent—roles as still photographer, commercial director, and creative director. (And he’s a wizard with a drone.)
But it’s his superpowers that allow Saam to marshal those skills meaningfully, that make him a unique creative force.
In a recent appreciation of Saam’s “Touchless Birthday” photo and film project, Esquire wrote that his “superpower is enabling and coordinating a crowd into a community, of finding a way to foster a ‘What if?’ moment.” He doesn’t just solve problems, he transforms them. He is particularly revered, by clients and subjects alike, for the enabling energy he brings to and fosters on a shoot, the immediate connections he’s able to forge with the talent.
Saam has created campaigns for brands including Apple, BMW, Samsung, GoPro, and dozens more.
I’m a Los Angeles based portrait and lifestyle photographer living and working on both coasts. I love collaborating with people and being thrown into different situations.

With the help of great crew, we strive to make magic happen for all of my clients. When I’m not making pictures I’m training for marathons or playing ice hockey to stay healthy, sane and inspired.
Home base is currently the Eagle Rock neighborhood of North East LA where I live with my wife, daughter, large cat and Guinea Pig.

Natasha is a Travel, Food & Lifestyle Photographer whose visuals evoke a sense of presence, of the fleeting moments that make an experience memorable. Her work is steeped in a sense of leisure, like taking time to lay out on a beachside hammock, to dig into a handcrafted salad, to stay in bed a bit longer to watch the light break through the shades. These visceral, intimate qualities make her images feel true, like the tug of familiar memories. From elaborate productions to intimate editorial shoots, she captures moments that invite viewers to experience new tastes, possibilities, and perspectives. Having split her childhood between Malaysia and California, she moves seamlessly across cultures, spaces, and interactions. Driving her imagery is the sense that no matter where we go or where we’re from, an unbreakable human connection links us together.

I’m a lifestyle and portrait photographer from Italy, currently residing in Los Angeles. As a young boy I had a colorful vintage 1960s map of the United States above my bed. Each main region was represented with a little sketch or figure, very detailed, and I had dreams that one day I was going to be there and discover all those places myself. My passion for visual arts encouraged me to study graphic design and work as web designer in Italy.
The opportunity became reality in 2002 when I moved from Italy and my journey started in San Francisco. In few years I ended up in various circumstances in the city of Angeles.
The multicultural environment, the vibrant lifestyle and the excitement for embracing this new adventure of life has been my motivation for taking photographs. A passion I cultivated since I was a young teenager and has transformed my life and career. After lot of training and experience, I consider myself very fortunate.

JSquared Photography is a photo team in Los Angeles specializing in Celebrity/Portraiture, Entertainment and Commercial. photography.
We get a lot of questions about how a photography team works. It’s not too difficult to explain. Joe Magnani and Jared Schlachet have been working togther for over 10 years (and now you know why we went with JSquared rather than Schlachet and Magnani). You get two sets of eyes carefully watching the set and the monitor as images come in. You get two individuals who genuinely care about the quality of the photography we are handing to the client. Best of all you get two guys who are easy to work with and are willing to do anything for the shot. We are a team involved with all aspects of the production from pre to post.
Their work has appeared in numerous magazines including international magazines. We work with all level of clients from small business’ to entertainment networks. Some clients include Warner Bros, CW, Too Faced Cosmetics, Angeleno Magazine, Emmy Magazine, and many more.
JSquared Photography would like to continue to grow by working with new clients both local to LA and nationally.
