Growing up in Hollywood, I was attracted to the TV industry and completed a Bachelor's degree in TV/film production. In college I learned about video lighting and composition, which is critical in still shots as well. Photography was a hobby for as long as I can remember. I shot headshots for friends even before I knew what an F-stop was. I shot headshots for the 5 people in my immediate family who were members of the Screen Actor's Guild and had a few headshot clients even while I worked as a video producer. A lot of the technical aspects of photography, I learned on my own with video courses and practice. In 2015 I revamped my headshot website which I had since 2003, and announced my headshot service to the general public.

I am a fashion/portraiture photographer who also likes to do street and product photography from time to time. I have been taking pictures with a DSLR for 7 years, however my pursuit of photography really took off about 3 years ago. I did study photography for a semester, but I am primarily self taught and enjoy experimenting with what one can do with photography.

camera Canon EOS 5D Mark III, Sony Alpha 7R II

Lou Baldanza is an LA-based photographer specializing in Headshot, Event, and Real Estate Photography. There are few times he leaves the house without some form of a camera in his hand or at the ready. Perpetually looking to capture as many of the raw and authentic moments of life and the people in it that he can, Lou's passion for photos came out of a pre-existing passion for filmmaking and storytelling with the moving image. He's since curtailed that propensity to slowing time down even further and focusing his creative energies on one frame at a time.

How did you get started with photography

My sister and I set up a darkroom in my grandmother's basement one summer and the magic of watching the black and white prints develop totally captivated my interest- I've been doing it ever since!

What do you love about your job?

I love seeing how happy people are when they see their final images. Some people think they "don't photograph well" - not true! There is a way to photograph everyone well and I love discovering how to put everyone's best face forward. I love meeting new people and going places I never would have gone otherwise.

What are some of your favorite places in Los Angeles to take photographs?

In Los Angeles I enjoy shooting in my neighborhood of Echo Park, there is always great light and great backdrops for fun portraits. Barnsdall Art Park, Echo Park Lake and Elysian Park at golden hour are also really nice. I'm always down for a hike or a drive to get a great shot. Often it's about timing a shoot with beautiful light rather than focusing on the location. (Unless of course that's the subject.)
