GET TO KNOW US!

We  are a small but mighty photography studio, headed by Professional  Photographer JD 'Leah' Rundblad. During her working years in New York City, Leah became  accustomed to working with clients that value meticulous attention to detail and persistence to excellence (Donna Karan, Vanity Fair, CHANEL, Victoria's Secret). She values and understands powerful and refined aesthetics.


Leah's formative training and work experience took place in New York City from 2004 to 2015. In 2015 we relocated to Irvine California. 


Leah commenced her studies in photography and retouching in 2005. She keeps her edge by constantly staying up to date (and training) on new techniques in post production, as well as using the latest available equipment and software.


EQUIPMENT MATTERS

Leah's main Camera is the Canon Mark lV, which is a standard of excellence. All our lenses are also the most advanced that Canon has to offer. 


We are simple, happy and down to earth, but not average.
