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 2018 Best Photography Business in Lake Tahoe.

Fulfilling expectations are as effortless as his demeanor. This is about you interacting with your setting. Enjoying your moment. Being you. Whether your project is here in Lake Tahoe or across the globe, Brian will be there to help tell your story.

“Brian Walker 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 have worked with Brian Walker on both commercial and passion projects for many years. In commercial 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 workwork 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 Skier, 2015 World Halfpipe Champion

"I recently had the opportunity to work with Brian Walker Photography on our latest product video and the experience was nothing less than AWESOME! We came to Brian with a basic idea of what we were looking for in the video; he took the input we gave him and created something far above and beyond anything I could have imagined. When someone has a passion for what they do it is reflected in their work and this was incredibly apparent throughout the entire process. Along with the filming and editing involved in the project, Brian also provided us with unbelievable high-quality photos (lifestyle, features and action). Anyone can have the equipment, but it takes an artist like Brian behind the lens to make something amazing happen. To sum it up in one word, STOKED!... Can’t wait for the next project to send his way!"

– Jacob Hanneman, Co-Owner of Bakpocket Products


"Brian is the best!!! When it came to finding a photographer to help us with our wedding, Brian was our first and only choice - we just had to have him! My sister had worked with him numerous times before so I knew he had incredible work and I was ecstatic when he agreed to do our wedding. Before, during and after he was the epitome of a pro. He listened to what I wanted but also came up with these awesome ideas I would never have even thought of. He was so professional and he made everyone involved feel extremely comfortable. We are overjoyed with our photos and everyone who has seen them just gushes about what an amazing job he did. And it's not just our wedding photos that I think are amazing -- have you seen his portfolio? He's fantastic at capturing the beauty of nature, people, everything! We are so thankful for Brian's help in making our wedding day perfect and so happy we can now call him a friend."
