Calm, Cool, Collected and a Sharp Shooter, Randy has been a commercial photographer for over 20 years. He started his career in San Francisco and relocated to Los Angeles in 1998. He’s been hired to shoot commercial ad campaigns by clients throughout the US for his ability to let people be themselves and to capture a very real moment.
His technique and way with people have been developed through years of working with all kinds of talent both “real” and professional, two legged and four legged. He believes that lifestyle should feel like, well, life, and not stock and that the creative process starts with the observation of people in, what would seem to be, very ordinary moments. His unique way of seeing these moments is what sets him apart.
Logistic Mastermind, Casey loves a good and tough puzzle. Casey’s love of summer and solving puzzles led her to earning her bachelor’s degree in recreation management from Ohio University in order to become an officer on board cruise ships. Over a span of 12 years chasing the summer sun in far flung ports including Odessa, Venice, Athens, St. Thomas, Singapore, Barbados and Monte Carlo, Casey worked rose to the level of Chief Purser on board an exclusive boutique luxury liner called Sea Goddess I, as part of the legendary Cunard officer corps. Her experiences managing the entire ship’s budget and payroll as well as working with customs and immigration officials in over 70 countries around the world make her an exceptional production manager who is well-suited to serving Randy’s clients for all types of photography shoots.
As soon as Casey is given the first draft shot list for any shoot, her mind starts clicking for the ideal locations, perfectly suited talent, appropriate props, thoughtful catering and top-notch crew. Her experience in customer service, attention to detail and keeping the mood professional yet fun are what makes photo shoot with Randy Schwartz Photography as fun and memorable as a summer cruise.
