My name is Damon Barnett. I’m a photographer located in Los Angeles, California.

Photography doesn’t feel like work or a job to me. It’s a can’t wait to get up in the morning and see if I can do it better kind of passion. I strive to capture authentic moments in time, out in the world in real light without forced smiles and rigid poses.

My work imparts to the viewer who the person captured really is—how they are full of life and not just a flawless picture in front of a backdrop. When I see a family in white shirts and jeans in a perfect traditional portrait, I feel like it’s a missed opportunity to see them alive, happy, and in love.

I can’t wait to meet you.
