Greetings! My name is Brian Wangenheim, and I have been involved in the creative arts my entire life. I discovered my passion for photography in first grade when I picked up my first disposable film camera. Since then, I have dabbled in various artistic pursuits such as drawing with pastels and creating sculptures while earning my Bachelor of Fine Arts from Cal State Long Beach (graduated 2015). Eventually, I found my way back to photography, which allows me to express my creativity while connecting with people and the world. My candid enjoyment of photography from my childhood is still alive in me today, and I have been providing professional photography services for about eight years. I am a passionate and dedicated photographer who is committed to delivering masterful work for every project.
What sets me apart? Firstly, take a look at my portfolio, and you will see a vast collection of my work. Photography is not merely a business for me; it's a way of life that allows me to engage and interact with the world. I aim to showcase the beauty, hope, and all the positive things that I see through my photographs. My personal style leans towards authentic, documentary-style photos, but I also enjoy doing staged and studio work. During my free time, I capture events with history in mind, conveying a positive message through my work. I am happy to make some of my photos available for free as I enjoy helping others. I have a wife, two young children, and a faith in God, and I believe that life is a gift, and we should all make the most of it. Whether you are in Ridgecrest, CA, California, or anywhere worldwide, I am ready to bring my unique vision and expertise to your photography project.
