About State Of The Art Images - Photography by Jim Brammer:

Jim Brammer is an award-winning photographic artist and owner of State of the Art Images, a fine art, portraiture and commercial photography studio located in Los Angeles. Honored as 2009 �Small Business of the Year� by the United Chambers of Commerce, winner in the �Photographer� category of the LA Daily News Readers Choice Awards for the last five years, and among three finalists for Volunteer of the Year in the LA Business Journal�s 2011 Corporate Citizenship Awards, Jim is also past President of Professional Photographers of Los Angeles County (PPLAC) and a member of numerous professional photography organizations.


Family Portraiture
It is our privilege to share some of the most important moments in our clients� lives. We delight in creating compelling images in fun and innovative ways to capture the essence of family � maternity, newborn, childhood, parents, grandparents, relationships and unique stories - special moments that evoke emotion. Our timeless, hand-crafted fine art portraits become family heirlooms to be treasured by many generations to come.

Fine Art Signature Wall Portraits
Too often treasured family heirlooms end up in drawers or photo albums, only to be viewed occasionally at best. At State of the Art Images, we believe that everyone should, at least once in their lifetime, capture beautiful portraits large enough to display on their walls. Our fine art portraits are created for artistic display and printed using archival pigment ink on fine art linen-textured paper, watercolor paper or canvas.

At State of the Art Images, we are committed to creating photographic masterpieces you will treasure for a lifetime.

Family Events
Let us capture the special moments at your family graduations, engagements, anniversaries, birthdays and other special occasions.

Executive Portraits
Executive portrait sessions are conducted at the client office or location of client?s choosing. This session is designed for business people requiring images for internal company use, publication or promotion.

Curt Gorlick, The Life Coach Strategist


"You are the best! Amazing photos!"

Bernice Le, Westfield


"Jim did a team photo for my staff and it turned out beautifully! He captured just the right mood for my company image and advertising needs, and he was so patient with all of us and our input. Our publication deadline was met and I plan to use this photo in every media piece I do. Thanks Jim!"

Karen Shoener, President, Designs of the Interior, Westlake Village, CA


"Thank you again to you and your wife for your caring and professional efforts to capture these wonderful memories of Daniel's Bar Mitzvah. It has been a real pleasure to meet and to work with you."

-- Barbara and Martin S


"Passionate Like No Other"

"You can feel from your first interaction with Jim and Marcia that photography is a real passion for the two of them. I don't mean just the act of "taking a picture", but more the art of capturing a moment in time that can last forever. It's one thing to take a picture you can do that almost anywhere these days, but it's another to have a photograph taken of you. They were very professional, yet with a real personal feel. I felt like family during and after the process. The studio was very comfortable, has a great vibe, and has some great artwork presented of previous photos taken by Jim giving you a sense of trust for the one with the camera in his hand. I cannot say enough about my great experience with them and I am truly grateful for their work."

--Keith McPherson, Digital Visual Media


"Jim Brammer is an incredible photographer. Not only have our photographs turned out beautifully, but he & Marcia are a pleasure to work with! We cherish the photos he has taken of our family and highly recommend him."

-- Allison L


"My family and I went to see Jim for a portrait sitting. He and Marcia immediately made us feel comfortable. My teens were not so thrilled to be doing this, but they had so much fun, Jim got fantastic pictures of them, even from the "tuff guy" who isn't known for smiling! I am very happy with the finished product! Go see Jim!"

-- Karen Mayberry


"I went to visit Jim and Marcia to take professional photos of my children. I was at ease and loved them the moment I walked in!!! Taking photos of two young children is no easy task, but Jim was a master!! The kids had the best time and the quality of the portraits was extraordinary. The hardest part was making a choice of which beautiful photos to hang in our home. It was a truly easy and enjoyable experience and they beautifully captured my kids. I look forward to working with Marcia and Jim once again."

-- Stephaine M


�Jim Brammer separates his art and craft from the rest because of who Jim is. He "listens" and then produces more than just images; Jim produces Art. I highly encourage you to have a conversation with the artist, Jim Brammer. You'll be glad you did."

-- Dave Ribble


"I contracted Jim and Marcia to do a family portrait. I have 2 teenage children and you can imagine how excited they were to pose for a family photo. Jim and Marcia made the experience so much fun for them that they did not want to leave after the photo session. The final product was by far the finest portrait that I have ever had taken and my kids loved their individual portraits as well. Without question, Jim and Marcia are true professionals and two wonderful people to work with."

-- David Burtch


"Jim's conceptual ideas with his hawk eye vision produces a quality image that leaves little to the imagination. Some of the best photographs I've used to market luxury homes."

-- Carroll McEachern, Coldwell Banker


"Consummate professionalism and extraordinary creativity - That's what Jim consistently offers and delivers. I�m grateful to Jim for his care, patience and expertise. I have entrusted him to capture many cherished moments and he has far exceeded my expectations."

-- Merry Lambert


"Jim Brammer strives for client satisfaction. He has been the most hospitable and patient photographer that I have ever worked with. His artistic acumen and attention to detail shows in his photography. I have strong confidence that Jim will always exceed client expectations."

-- Michelle Salazar Arevalo


"Your photos of our family--especially of my son and daughter-in-law--are superb! Every portrait is a work of art, which makes choosing only two or three for my office almost impossible.

If you ever need an endorsement or testimonial, it would be my pleasure to speak to anyone and offer my enthusiastic and unqualified recommendation.

Thank you again for your brilliant work."

-- Jim Rothman


"Thanks so much for our beautiful engagement shoot in Hawaii. You did a wonderful job of capturing the essence of our love, emotion and connection - and now we can cherish professional images that truly tell our story. The best part was that we barely even knew you were there! You have a great way of discreetly capturing the special moments. Thanks for all of your work and expertise, and we look forward to our next shoot!"

-- Jen and Chris Prince


"Jim came to our house to take family photographs for the Holidays. He set up his equipment quickly and effortlessly and was ready for the shoot. Jim is very knowledgeable in lighting and posing techniques to get the perfect shot. He delivered wonderful professional family photos as well as a bundle of nice candids!"

-- Loretta Kaye


"The agents in our office and I want to thank you for your professionalism and the skillful handling of our head shots. Each agent remarked on how comfortable you made them feel and your great attention to detail. The proof is in the photos and the results are wonderful. What an improvement over the previous photo I used on all of my marketing materials. We need to have you come back for another session very soon for the agents who were not available this time."

-- Herb Lambert


"You are the best photographer! I would recommend you to anyone. It's an art and you take wonderful pictures! Thank you."
