Sherri J

Hello and welcome! My name is Sherri Johnson and I am a photographer in Los Angeles specializing in people and places. I've been super lucky to have a career that has been both fun and challenging.

My first job as a photographer was at the age of 17, when I worked at a children's portrait studio in the mall. There, I honed my skills in capturing smiles even with the most challenging subjects like large groups, toddlers, and pets. I attended Northern Illinois University to study psychology, art, and science. My favorite memories included photographing events for the university newspaper, taking horseback riding classes for a year, and traveling to China to teach English.

In 2008, I relocated to Los Angeles with a dream to photographing in one of the most beautiful places in the world. Since then, I've captured over 250 beautiful weddings in Los Angeles, Long Beach, Orange County, Santa Barbara, Palm Springs, Chicago, Napa Valley, and San Diego. I've also had the privilege of photographing events for Sony's Destination Playstation in Cabo, Costa Rica, Arizona, and Santa Monica.

While my weekends were busy shooting events, my real estate photography kept me busy on the weekdays. I have seen lots of exquisitely styled homes and have met the fascinating individuals who've live there.

A couple of my favorite real estate jobs: Ojai Farmhouse Tour and Toy Factory Loft Double Penthouse

Samples of commercial shoots: SPACES Menlo Park, CA and Rogers Behavioral Health

During the COVID-19 pandemic, I focused on diversifying my skills to include videography. I got a drone for aerials and my career propelled even further.

In spring 2021, I was recruited by CoStar Group to create media for Apartments.com and neighborhood content for the newly acquired Homes.com website. Within a few years, I achieved recognition in the top 1% of drone pilots worldwide and played a pivotal role in setting new standards for the growth of our photography department.

Samples from Apartments.com including photo / video / drone / matterports and photo / video editing (only the media with a CoStar watermark in the bottom right corner): 1133 South Hope Street, The BORA 3170, Rise Hollywood, The Melrose, and The 900

Samples from Homes.com including photo / video / drone of neighborhoods: Beverly Grove, Echo Park, Beverly Crest, and East Hollywood

Thank you to all of my clients and friends who have been along for the ride. It has been a pleasure to serve you with memories that will last a lifetime. ❤️
