The glitz and glamour of Los Angeles spills out into Riverside County, especially when it comes to the metro’s fashion photographers. Encapsulating funky branding shoots, Instagram snaps, and fine editorial photography, fashion photography is a specialized field. Any fashion photographer worth their salt is sure to style you to the nines and make you look your best. We used a radius of 45 miles — with one very notable exception — to make this list of the most talented Riverside fashion photographers. Choose one and be fabulous!
With a dazzling array of portraits under his belt, all with clean, minimalist lines, Ken Weingart’s work truly stands out. Ken often works with celebrities and it’s easy to see why they choose him — his simple, elegant portraits keep the focus exactly where it belongs: on his model! He has a bold, graphic style which lends itself perfectly to black-and-white images, although his color photography is beautiful as well. If you want to try your hand at being styled like you’re famous, give Ken a call.
Corey Kennedy dabbles in all types of photography, believing that specialization can sometimes lead to stagnation — after looking at his work, we may agree. His ability to bring various techniques into his shots makes for a diverse portfolio. There is an almost tongue-in-cheek cleverness to his studio shots, and each photo is packed with personality and carefully composed for impact. He is an excellent commercial and fashion photographer for those shoots where you want your sense of fun on full display.
Regularly featured on magazine covers, Heather Koepp’s work has deserved every accolade. Her style leans vintage and timeless, with an almost film-feel to each shot — think portraits of 1970s rock stars, and you have a grasp on her aesthetic. Deriving inspiration from her work with musicians and at concerts, she brings an artistic touch to everything she shoots. Often using a cross-processing editing technique, her editorial work is hip, high-class, and always beautiful to behold.
4. Oksana of OksanART Photography
With a background in graphic design and a specialty in glamour and boudoir photography, Oksana brings a sense of style to every photo. Whether you want a classic pin-up look or something a bit more futuristic, Oksana is a great choice. Her poses are flattering without feeling forced, an important quality in a fashion shoot, as well as the mark of a true professional.
5. Destiny Bennett of Eyekonic Photography
For images that are truly different, Destiny Bennett blends fashion, art, and female empowerment with a unique and bold style. Highly saturated and stylized, her work is perfect for women who want to showcase another side of themselves, especially if they are mothers. We cannot get enough of Destiny’s portfolio, as her photos combine so many diverse elements with thoughtful editing techniques.
Having shot for national brands like Wet Seal and Oakley, Damion Lloyd is a slick commercial photographer. All of his shots are professional and perfect for when you need product fashion photography for your website or sales campaign. It takes immense talent and patience to consistently deliver polished work, and Damion boasts these attributes in spades.
7. Luis Herrera
A bit outside of our radius toward the Greater Los Angeles/Orange Country area, but Luis Herrera’s work is too beautiful not to mention. Capturing all of the sun-drenched, SoCal vibes, his style is perfectly suited for the ‘Gram — think slouchy poses, muted colors, and clean backgrounds. His portfolio is sultry and super-hip — the obvious product of an uber-talented photographer. Call Luis when you are being featured in Vogue.
