Russ has three primary disciplines within his commercial photography portfolio, action, product and lifestyle. Each of them provides him an avenue to express the different techniques he has developed over the past 22 years of his craft.
Russ’ career started as a photographer for Surfing Magazine. Traveling the world as a Surf Photographer honed his skills for shooting Action. During his career at Oakley, he photographed the best athletes in the world within their element.
Russ has a 1100 square foot photo and video studio with a 24x16 foot cyc with 30 foot ceilings and an adjacent make-up and styling room located in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA. His studio has the capabilities to photograph items as large as a vehicle as well as the smallest products you might need captured.
Developing connections to a client’s product through visual storytelling is what Russ finds most compelling about his lifestyle based photography.
