Orange County visual artist Don Le has a passion for expressing his subjects' inner beauty and personality. In his career in photography and video production, Le's portfolio spans across a wide range of styles, from wedding compositions to celebrity and fashion photoshoots to family portraits. Le's pieces often splash with a dreamy saturation of color, and he can upgrade a shot with his playful, inventive use of lighting, computer-generated backgrounds, and various angles. During three-hour photography courses, Le teaches students how to visualize and create photo compositions of their very own. Those courses include pointers in both outdoor and indoor photography, so you can properly capture Bigfoot in either the woods or a department store.
At The Collective Photo, a talented team of skilled shutterbugs channels past experience shooting celebs including Ashley Tisdale and Hayley Williams of the band Paramore during creativity-infused one-hour photo shoots.

The Collective Photo welcomes as many subjects as poses demand, with shoots pausing for up to two outfit changes, saving customers the trouble of choosing between traditional attire or a functioning space suit. After the appointment, subjects peruse the proofs and pick one to have masterfully retouched and immortalized in physical print form.
