Photography That Elevates Brands

You’ve got a story to tell. We’re the people to help you tell it.

You’ve got a story to tell – whether it’s making a great first impression with your headshot, documenting an event you’ve been planning all year, or showcasing your product in an online store.

And we believe that clean, professional, and vibrant photography can elevate your brand and bring your story to life.

Based in San Diego, CA, our photography team has been serving clients with the best commercial photography in Southern California (and beyond) for nearly 20 years, since we opened our doors in 2002.

We specialize in vibrant event photography, classic and artistic headshots, clean product photography, and much more. If you have a photography need, we are your people.

What Sets Us Apart

Personal Approach

You’re not just another cookie-cutter client. We take a personal approach and get on the phone to get to know you – so your personality and your brand will shine brightly in your images.

Trusted Large Team

Bauman Photographers has been in the biz since 2002, and we have a large team of trusted, skilled photographers. We only work with the best, and because of our team’s size, we’re almost always available when you need us. 

Fast & Responsive

Unlike some photographers, we’re not just a one-man-band. We’ve got a staff of editors, a full-time studio manager, and a team of photographers to help when you need it. Responsiveness and organization are the wheels that keep this train moving for our clients. 


Built-In Studio Space

Not all commercial photographers have a built-in studio space like ours – we’ve got a 4,000 square foot studio where the possibilities are endless. So there’s no need to rent a studio for your project!

Confidently Creative

We’ll create images that will look even better than you could have imagined. Our broad technical skills create a vibrant, bold, look that our clients go crazy for – and our confidence translates into a smooth, calm experience for you. 

Team Spirit

Our team feels like a family, and we love having fun together. We take team dance parties just as seriously as team meetings, and we’re always game for ending our work week with chicken tendies and happy hour specials at our favorite neighborhood bar. 

Case Studies

We’ve seen endless clients boost their brands with fresh new images – and skyrocket their success in the process. Read more about a few of our favorite brand stories from right here in San Diego, and how we have provided trusted, quality photography for their teams.
