BEHIND THE LENS
Angela Daves Haley approaches photography as both a visionary and an ambassador. Her work embodies story, and captures the emotional energy of life’s events. She endeavors to illuminate personal and professional portraiture. In her work, the human spirit is rendered art; its reflection of simplicity, truth, and intimacy is unwavering.
Angela's eye deftly moves from portraiture to capturing live show and concert productions, behind-the-scenes moments, sporting events, and on-set candid photography. Corporate, Entertainment, Sports and Non-Profit events, Unit Photography, Media and Video Production all fill her extensive portfolio.
A graduate from U.C. Berkeley, Angela's business and marketing acumen combined with her experience in entertainment, marketing, promotions and special events industries strengthen her ability to naturally and purposefully portray the brands of celebrities, athletes, and products in her images while conveying the magic, story and experience surrounding their regional, national and international campaigns. This expertise, coupled with her eye for detail and approachable personality, allows high profile subjects such as Michael Jordan, Angelina Jolie, and A-List guests on Peter Bart and Peter Guber 's NBC show to feel at ease, allowing Angela to capture unique and authentic moments. The end result also marks Angela as an instrumental team player with Brand, Marketing and PR executives and their departments. Her portfolio includes Nike (Campaigns: Let Me Play, Livestrong, Human Race, Run Hit Wonder, Made to Move, Battlegrounds, Women’s Marathon), Microsoft, KIIS-FM, Starz Entertainment, Showtime and The Michael Jordan Flight School.

The “old Hollywood” styles of Francesco Scavullo and Max Factor seep into this Los Angeles native's interpretation of black & white portraiture. She intentionally composes family story by focusing on the intimacy between family members. The soul of Angela's black & white photography retains classic memory in each shot. As an un-proclaimed ambassador of pure, yet profound joy, Angela mixes her own radiant spirit with that of her clients. Her passion “lights” every photo experience, radiating the natural beauty of her clients as a result. Consequently, Angela receives frequent requests to create family heirlooms for clients that include the likes of Denzel Washington, Carol Burnett and The Wayans.
Angela Daves Haley blends technique with talent to produce timeless treasures for all of her clients. Her love for the camera – and the people in front of it – empowers her to consistently deliver compelling stories through her work.
