Providing photography for the Southern California area. Photography for Britt Dietz started as just an amateur love, but grew into a life career and expanded into fields and experiences that were well beyond greatest hope for the passion. An award winning and published Aviation Photographer for 10 years, Britt has made a name for himself in the Airshow and Military Aviation industry with his unique style of photos that are often praised as some of the best Aviation Photography there is currently. Traveling to Airshows, Air Events, Museums, and Military bases all around the United States to get the perfect images of machines in flight, his love of Aviation shines through each and every photograph he makes.
From Aviation to acting, Britt's photography expands into the ever needing field of Headshots and Model Portfolios. Working with Men and Women to create very artist and memorable headshots is a joy for Britt, and his work has helped actors and actresses stand out about the rest at auditions for all sorts of entertainment related endeavors. Averaging several headshot shoots a week, it keeps him very busy with an ever-growing list of clientele. While Model Portfolios are a new style for Britt, he's already excelled at capturing the perfect way to showcase new talent in the modeling world.
Five years ago, a major toy making company contacted Britt, who has a love for Vintage Military Aviation and World War 2 history, and asked him to recreate the classic World War 2 style Pin-Ups that were very popular during that time. Putting days and days worth of research in, he started to replicate Pin-Ups from famous artists of the time like George Petty and Vargas for what at the time was to be recreations of 'nose art' to put on World War 2 toy military aircraft. Once that project ended, he continued to shoot this style of photography, loving how it touches the World War 2 past and recreates art, and has sense started to make his name known as a Pin-UP and Vintage photographer. In most recent news, he's started a photo collection, which he has called the 'Petty Project' that will replicate as many painted 'Petty Girls', famous art of the 1940s, as possible through photography with various models.
Not only has Britt worked with one of the world's most prestigious small scale Military toy makers doing product photography for their thousands of products, but now Britt has partnered up with game juggernaut Blizzard Entertainment to help with their online product library through photography. Britt has also been shooting product photography; from clothing to coffee mugs, dog tags to umbrellas, books to patches for the world famous Planes of Fame Air Museum gift shop.
One of Britt's long time photography genres, which has almost rivaled his name with Aviation Photography, is in the realm of character and cosplay photography. From Darth Vader at a convention to Princess Aurora at Disneyland Park in California, over 10 years of character photography has made him well known in the various world of characters in all walks of life. Known for his work with the 501st Legion, a Star Wars fan group based on picture perfect costumes replicated from the Star Wars movies, his name is known far and wide among the costuming world. This led to over fours years shooting at Disneyland Park in California, shooting parades, characters, and shows. Shooting at the largest theme park in the world allowed Britt to fine tune his skills with the ever challenging and changing world of Disney and the various styles of shows and parades they have.
Britt's photography spans all the ranges, and the various genres above are only the tip of the range Britt has in the Photography industry. Weddings, Engagements, Landscape, Documentary, Schools, Dances, Sports, and much more make up the never ending list of professional talents Britt has developed in what started as just a hobby in photography and grew into a legacy of photos!
