Hi There!  

My name is Nicholas Lea Bruno. 

Feel free to contact me about photos, videos, or anything really.




I specialize in portraiture, event, and documentary style photography. I also have extensive experience in videography and editing. Please contact me about rates and availability. I'm based in Oakland, CA, but I love to travel. 


Clients trust me to deliver high-quality imagery with social grace and kindness. I've had the privilege of working for companies like Red Bull, Lightstep, Uproxx, Hornblower Cruises, UC Berkeley, California College of the Arts, Daybreaker, Amazon Tenmarks, Hightower, The Hundreds, The Seventh Letter, Ironlak, Haas Institute, CMIND, and many more. 


I try to make myself available to do pro-bono/discounted work for non-profit and social justice organizations when I can afford it. Are you working on something awesome and meaningful? Don't hesitate to contact me, even if you don't have much of a budget. Great experiences are just as valuable to me as money :)





I'm always open to collaboration with other artists and professionals.... whether it's second-shooting at a wedding, putting together a gallery show, or making a silly stop-motion animation... I really enjoy working with other creative people.



I have two nice cameras, lenses, lighting equipment, a seamless backdrop, stands, tripods, a slider, various stabilizers, audio equipment, light painting stuff, an awesome assistant, reliable transportation, and a good attitude. I have extensive experience filming weddings as well--if you're a production company, consider hiring me for your next wedding job.



I've recently taken a break after two amazing years of teaching at Berkeley Art Studio, but I am also available for private individual or group lessons to further your photography practice.
