My name is Karl Sonnenberg and I am a live performance photographer and videographer based in Los Angeles.
A little about my life before I became a photographer full-time. I was a police officer in Los Angeles. After fourteen years on the department, a door opened up for me in television and film to be a police technical advisor. You can see the list of the shows I've worked on by clicking HERE.
Live performance: freezing the moment the ball leaves the fingertips of a basketball player, the energy of the holding that last note on the 11 o'clock number, an expression that makes the audience roar in laughter, a dancer suspended in air, live performance photography is all about capturing the moment.
Video is the second arm of Sonnenberg Shots that also encompasses live performance. In addition to live performances, I also do private audition taping on location or at my studio. I can provide green/blue screen as well as traditional seamless paper backgrounds, depending on your needs. I light, provide audio, shoot, edit and can host your audition or performance via my VIMEO page HERE or on a private linked page on Sonnenberg Shots.
Lastly, if you're an actor that needs a demo reel update or if you're just getting started and need your first demo reel, please visit the ACTOR REELS page HERE to see some of my current work.
