My name is Karl Sonnenberg and I am a live performance and editorial 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.
 I continue to work as a technical advisor in the industry and enjoy every minute of it but my heart is in photography.
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 encompasses  live performance: cabarets, stand-up, speakers and more. 
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 VIDEO page HERE to see some of my current work.
