Based in Rancho Santa Margarita, California
I am a commercial photographer who creates sports lifestyle imagery. I am based in Southern California, living just outside Los Angeles in Rancho Santa Margarita.
My love for photography began when I was 11 years old with a Sports Illustrated subscription that included a free camera. Changing the plastic cameras f-stop’s from cloudy to partly cloudy, and even to the sunny setting was all the sophistication I needed to test it out the first time photographing Shamu on our family vacation. From there, as they say, the rest is history.
Having participated in sports and outdoor adventure throughout my life I naturally gravitated towards sports lifestyle imagery. It has always provided me with opportunities to challenge myself in new ways, creatively and technically. Whether I’m photographing an NBA superstar with a five minute time limit or capturing a runner in full stride, each day as a photographer is exhilarating and satisfying.

There is a unique story behind every face and I rely on those unexpected details to make images that are as special as the people.

Home base is currently Los Angeles, California where I live with my wife, daughter, large cat and Guinea Pig.
Go find the strange and the arresting. Make it personal, with tenderness and respect. Go analog, go tethered, go untethered, change where the sun is relative to your lens, switch out the softbox, put a grid on it. Put a gel on it. Put another gel on it. Kick the tripod. Ask if there’s another view, another room, another flavor, a favorite record, a very first book, a pair of shoes that will never be thrown away. Say yes. Ask if there’s any way they can put sod down in time for the shoot tomorrow. Ask if there’s wifi, if there’s a good sandwich shop nearby, if there are any quirks, anything they’re known for. Ask if they know any good jokes. Tell a good joke. Ask if they like their smile. Make it sing. Make it up as you go along. Make it worth the expense. Make it great.

A SoCal girl at heart, my early days were spent entertaining my competitive spirit as a surfer and equestrian rider. I fell in love with photography after discovering the darkroom in high school, but put that dream on hold to pursue my passion for sports. At 23, I became one of the first female professional snowboarders. I had pro-models and spent the next 10 years traveling the world competing in various events (including the X Games) and making a name for myself as an athlete. Throughout my career as a snowboarder, I always knew that I would come back to photography. I invested in photography school, bought the gear and took time off to shoot. Making my home in Sun Valley, Idaho I’ve become very passionate documenting the outdoor lifestyle and taking photographs of people when they’re at their peak stoke levels! I’m a wanna-be cowgirl, enjoy a good sipping tequila, love my best friend of 17 years, Mark, and raising our sassy teenage daughter.

Based in Boulder, Colorado
I’ve spent a decade in the trenches on all phases of creative production – working alongside creative, digital and marketing teams from brands large and small. Every approach is different allowing me to constantly listen, learn and adapt.
The impact of sports culture has always had a strong influence on me – the way it unites and brings the best out of us. I strive to help sports and outdoor brands evolve their creative to include more culturally-driven initiatives and connect with purpose-oriented communities.
After a graduate business degree and two marketing stints with biotech startups, I made the leap to the production world to more preemptively improve people’s lives and our culture at large. This was uncharted territory but I’m at my best under pressure.
I’ve been lucky enough to regularly work for amazing clients such as Crocs, Altra, Salomon, Hoka One One, Clif Bar and the Colorado Rapids to develop, plan and execute compelling campaigns with cultural impact.
By navigating a path between adventure and humanity, I tell stories of people on personal journeys that feel important.
I am based in Boulder, CO, but often on the road living and running out of my mini-van. I’ve driven to borders, both North and South. I’ve paddled from source to sea, and traveled coast to coast. I run high peaks and swim in valleys. I visit cities, deserts and people that I miss. I believe that it is between big canyon walls, in murky water, and on long narrow trails where strangers become the closest friends.
Combining my education in Integrated Marketing Communications with my creative eye and ear, I work with brands to tell meaningful stories in strategic ways.

I am a commercial content creator, photographer, and videographer focused primarily on product-based advertising and marketing within the outdoor sport and cycling industries. I split my time between working both in the studio or shooting on-location for action and lifestyle content. Based in Northern Colorado, I travel around the west and midwest US for projects.
I gravitate towards the outdoor industry because that’s where my personal passions are: mountain biking, gravel riding, rock climbing, camping, hiking, etc. This is not a hard rule though. I have produced stellar works in many other industries including: beer/beverage, corporate, scientific, higher education, insurance, mobile technology, consumer electronics, local business, and more. I’ve also photographed events ranging from pro sporting events including the Winter X-Games and Crankworx, to product launch camps and local competitions/races.
I’m an outdoor lifestyle photographer, a father (two kids, a dog, and two cats!), husband, outdoor explorer, and adventurer. It all keeps me pretty busy. Sometimes I’m asked what I do in my spare time. Spare time??! But in reality, when I do get free time, I’m usually taking photos. I feel incredibly fortunate to have my passion as my career.
For over a decade, I have had the opportunity to collaborate with a diverse array of clients as a photojournalist and commercial photographer. Documenting a wide variety of spaces, individuals, and experiences; from comfortable luxury venues with Fairmont Hotels to combat training in austere conditions with the Department of Defense.
My approach to photography has been more of a process of self development rather than just treating it as a career—it’s about cultivating a sense of curiosity of the world, exploring outside my comfort zone, and connecting with people who I admire and find interesting.
What I’m most interested in are opportunities to create work that is worth sharing and to help those who I collaborate with engage with their audience on a deeper, more human level.
Hi, I’m Kamil. I’m a photographer living and working in Vancouver, BC. I’m available for editorial, advertising, and personal commissions worldwide. I hold Canadian and EU passports. My photographic practice is centered around many things that don’t quite make perfect sense in my brain, such as the how and why of colour densities, how does the process itself influence the final photograph, and how to intersect graphic art with the visceral documentary experience. So when I’m working, I’m usually thinking about all these things at once. I’m currently particularly interested in projects that hold cultural or environmental significance, be they in advertising, editorial, or personal art. But I’m not saving any lives, so all that to say, I love my work, and I have a lot of fun with it.

A love for snowboarding, the outdoors and a passion for imagery led me to pursue a career in photography. After obtaining a BFA in Photography from Rochester Institute of Photography, I moved west to be closer to the mountains, basing myself in Pemberton, BC.

Whether it is a runner focusing before an Olympic race, a refugee becoming the first of her community to receive a university degree or a climber looking up at the mountain he will measure himself against, emotions are the common thread, human and universal. Telling people stories with earnestness and honesty is what I strive to do every time I pick up a camera.
I am grateful that photography has given me so many opportunities to live unique experiences. There are too many to list exhaustively, but highlights include sailing an expedition yacht around Cape Horn, being invited to an Ethiopian coffee ceremony in Dadaab Refugee Camp, photographing Usain Bolt at the Olympics, skiing to the North Pole, naming three (small) mountains in Greenland, adventure racing through Tierra del Fuego, climbing on K2 and getting winched from a rescue helicopter at night . I can’t wait to see what happens next!
My work is currently divided more or less evenly between adventure and humanitarian/development projects. I currently live in Canmore, Alberta, but frequently travel back to my former home base of Chamonix, France.
