BIO: Don Berg

Sr. Photographer

So good to be home!

Seemingly born to have cameras, lights, jib arms, dolly's and drones in my hands, I left the Pacific Northwest to follow my passion. I worked many years on feature films, number one rated network television shows and numerous faith based projects in and around the Los Angeles/Hollywood area, the U.S., and beyond.

I was blessed with the opportunity to be involved with more fantastic projects and even more fantastic people than I could have possibly dreamed!

While leaving home to pursue adventure is exciting, there is a deep and satisfying sweetness to breathing the Great Northwest air once again. My heart, home and family are all rooted here in the Portland / Vancouver area and I have returned to enjoy the open skies, beautiful rivers, peaceful forests and trails among the most majestic mountain landscapes on the planet.

I leave behind the Hollywood attitude, bustle and stress but bring with me an affinity for top notch gear and a wealth of professional skills including composition, lighting and an unflappable striving for perfection when it comes to photography in all it’s varied forms.

This next chapter of my career is off to an awesome start. Meeting new friends and connections, making my clients look great and having fun doing what I love.

I’d like to get to know you and your needs too. Lets go shoot some great pictures!
