Levi Yocom graduated college with an AA in Commercial Photography. Where he studied food and architectural photography, while staying well versed in many other genres as well. From there on, after graduating, Levi moved to Los Angeles in efforts to expand his knowledge and experience in the world of photography. He began assisting for photographers right off the bat (Lifestyle, food, and architectural photographers.) While at the same time working as a real estate photographer for Virtuance Real Estate Photography. Levi now resides back in his hometown of Bettendorf, Iowa where he is currently shooting for select restaurants in the area, as well as working towards expanding his own portfolio.
I love that I can use my photography as a way to help bring my clients concepts and ideas to reality. And I love that I can have fun doing it.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have shot for two cafes in Los Angeles. Both shoots were for their website/social media where I took photos of a few dishes and portraits of the staff. I have shot architecture for a firm based out of Irvine, CA where I was contracted to shoot store front properties and drone images in a shopping area that the firm managed. I have a very good work ethic, I'm great at planning and problem solving and I am also pretty gregarious which makes it easy for me to interact with clients/subjects. So those aspects are what I would say helped make these shoots special.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
While I was in college, I entered 5 prints into the PPI (Professional Photographers of Iowa) Winter Convention and I walked away with the top student print case out of all the students of Iowa who entered. I also won top portfolio of my graduating class.
A fun fact about this photographer
I rarely shoot digital whenever I am shooting for myself. I am a big film shooter. Shooting film and collecting music (Vinyl records) are my two favorite side hobbies.
