Captured on 10,20, 2021 by Brian Walker / Brian Walker Photography


A product of the region, Tahoe runs strictly through his veins. It is no secret that the landscape plays an integral part in Brian’s work. For him, these mountains have become a backdrop, a cloud an opportunity and a sunrise is nothing short of a masterpiece. 

Brian is not only inspired by the vast landscapes of Tahoe but he can also be found in it, always chasing his own adventure or capturing somebody else’s. He has a deep knowledge of the weight of certain unforgettable arduous moments [in the backcountry] and he has no shortage of his own. Because of all this and his hard work to create beautiful imagery for his clients, Brian was awarded the award for Best Photography Business in Lake Tahoe in 2018, 2020, and again in 2021.

Fulfilling expectations are as effortless as his demeanor.  Whether your project is here in Lake Tahoe or across the globe, Brian will be there to help tell your story.





“Visit Carson City has worked with Brian on a couple of photo, video, and drone shoots now and we haven’t found anyone better at capturing the essence of Carson City. Brian is a triple threat on all mediums and truly understands his client’s brand needs, especially in the tourism space. He’s exceeded our expectations on every level. He’s incredibly flexible and was communicative throughout the whole process. His love for the outdoors and his unique eye create beautiful work, plus he will quite literally climb a mountain for you if it means getting the best shot. We can’t recommend him enough.”

-Lydia Beck, Visit Carson City

“Brian is incredibly talented. Action, landscape, concerts, or lifestyle photos, Brian is well versed and always captures those unforgettable moments. In addition to his incredible images, Brian delivers photos on-time and always goes above and beyond to make a personal connection with his subjects and clients. I’ve worked with Brian for over five years and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for professional photography needs.“

- Steven Hemphill, Baden Sports / Athletic Greens / Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort / K2 Skis

"I have worked with Brian on both commercial and passion projects for many years. With commercial work, he is superb at capturing and communicating the message a client is looking for. As well as going above and beyond to create those perfect images that the client couldn't even imagine. In passion projects, he has a unique eye for capturing those brief glimpses of magic we all experience yet have such a hard time explaining. Add on his humble and welcoming demeanor and you have someone who is an absolute pleasure to work with from beginning to end."

-Kyle Smaine, Professional Freeskier, 2015 World Halfpipe Champion 

"A creative and talented professional with unmatched style and versatility. Brian takes direction and provides an end result that trumps expectations" 

-Thea Hardy, Novus Select / Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort

"I had the opportunity to work with Brian for a couple of years during my time at Sierra-at-Tahoe. Contracting him for jobs always put me at ease—I knew we’d get the results we wanted while feeling comfortable both collaborating closely and giving him ownership of many projects. He knows how to efficiently direct athletes and models, gained the trust of our operation teams, and was prepared no matter what obstacles a shoot brought. It was a pleasure working with Brian and I hope to get to do so again in the future."

-Sarah Sherman, Snowbird / Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort
