Welcome to LaurensAntoine.com. San Diego's highest rated and most acclaimed photographer

San Diego Photographer

Thanks for visiting. We're a full service studio that's created some of the world's most memorable photographs. 

Some background:

Best known as an international celebrity magazine photographer and FHM Magazine’s Director of Photography, Laurens has over 25 years in the fashion industry. In 2011, with 8 million miles logged traveling Laurens decided to focus more in his hometown of San Diego.

In 2012, Laurens Antoine Studio was opened downtown to cater to local professional firms, corporations, local businesses, and their creative agencies. When asked in an interview why the studio wasn’t opened in Los Angeles where Laurens already has a strong entertainment industry following, he simply replied: “Money isn’t everything, San Diego is home.”

Historically, our city has been photography challenged and there were only a small handful of high-end photographers. Most the lucrative work for photographers comes from the advertising centers and in Southern California that means Los Angeles and San Francisco which is where most the sought-after photographers’ base themselves.

The studio opening means that now San Diego has a local photographer just as qualified as in any other city. A big part of the new studio's focus is professional headshots and advertising work. Now all San Diegans can get the same high quality headshots and portraits as their New York and Los Angeles counterparts.

The client experience:

San Diego photographer Laurens Antoine takes great pride in providing the highest level of customer service. The marketing plan is simple: Mix the highest quality photography with the best customer experience and the rest will take care of itself.

There are many San Diego photographers and we invite you to browse their websites as well as ours before you choose. Please also read our Google Reviews. We hope we can earn your business and become your photographer!

Please read our Google Reviews or some of the hundreds of testimonials on our site including some of these below:

Larry Winokur; BWR Public Relations:“As a founder of BWR, I have worked with Laurens over the span of 15 years, both directly, and through many of our publicists. He has always provided great work in a collaborative and professional manner.  He has given us the tools to do even better work. We have great regard for Laurens and would place our most valued clients in his hands.”

Jason Moskowitz; Radar Pictures:"With A-list stars like Cameron Diaz and Sandra Bullock in our films, there are very few photographers I trust. I need one that gets along with celebrities, and I need great pictures. The first name I think about for photography is always Laurens Antoine. The images are extraordinary, and his handling of the talent exceptional."

JR Futrell; NBC:"I’ve worked with Laurens on a quarter million dollar shoot as he coordinated a staff of 30. It finished on time, and came out unbelievable. It wouldn’t have been as remarkable if it wasn’t that we were on an island, with inclement weather, lost cargo, and talent that fell ill. I don’t know another photographer that could have pulled that off!" 

Ashlan Gorse: E! Entertainment:“Laurens is flat out amazing.  He made me feel so comfortable and really listened to my ideas.  I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer and the proof is in the absolutely stunning photos he took of me.”

Scott Kritz; Sony Pictures Entertainment: "After years of working with Laurens, I can honestly say he's become my go-to guy. His creativity, dedication and reliability are the qualities anyone hopes for in a fantastic photographer."
