My name is Reed Decker...

I'm a Southern California based commercial and editorial photographer specializing in lifestyle/portrait photography. I was born and raised in San Diego and mainly spend my time between SD, Orange County and L.A. I proudly graduated from Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, CA before it was overtaken and shut-down by corporate vultures. At Brooks I learned the power of light to shape a subject. Using light naturally and/or artificially, to create depth, mood, and drama when capturing the essence of people and places.    

My photographic style is influenced from an eclectic mix of fashion, hip-hop, street, and portrait photography. I always strive to bring out a subdued intensity in all my subjects whether shooting an athlete, rapper, dancer etc.
