Sherri J

Los Angeles Photographer

My name is Sherri Johnson and I am a photographer in Los Angeles specializing in people and places.

Close friends would describe me as talented, generous, organized, creative, hardworking, passionate, and an all-around badass chick. I would say I'm just l living my dream of taking pictures in the most beautiful place in the world.

My journey started early. My first job was photographing children’s portraits at the mall where I learned to get kids to smile without saying "cheese." After I graduated college with honors, I started retouching pictures full-time at VHT Studios. I always love seeing cool homes and dreaming of what it would be like to live there (still do).

In the summer of 2008, I moved to Los Angeles and started my freelance career. I have since photographed lots of portraits, 250+ beautiful weddings for my own clients, and 4500+ residential properties including many million-dollar listings and celebrity homes.

In early spring 2021, I was recruited to join CoStar Group focusing my talents on producing high-end commercial real estate media.

If I wasn't a lifelong shutterbug, I'd consider a career as a matchmaker or hairstylist. Actually, if you're single and would like some help with your love life, contact me today! I would love to help you with your online dating profile pictures. I will help guide you in achieving the best profile of yourself so you are set up to may meet someone special.
