Adam Moran is a documentary sports and lifestyle photographer residing in Los Angeles and working world wide. Photography and a passion for the outdoors have been a part of his life from a young age, and he has turned that passion into a career that has taken him around the globe with some of the world’s best athletes. His experience in shooting action sports has grown into an ability to keep things quick, light and fun while always turning out great images no matter the conditions or country. Unlike the mainstream photojournalist who approaches each assignment from the outside, Moran comes from within. He is a snowboarder and athlete, a voracious traveler, he is at home in the mountains and on the road. His photos are meant to tell a story and evoke an emotion. Documenting moments that are honest, raw, and familiar making each viewer feel a connection to them.
Over his 10 years of shooting photos professionally, Moran has established himself as a known name in the action sports and outdoor industries. His photos have graced the covers of over 35 magazines and can be seen in global marketing campaigns. His past as the Global Team Director for Burton Snowboards has taught him the skills to manage a crew, and produce shoots in far off locations, with a get it done attitude. After spending a decade circling the globe creating imagery for the snowboarding industry he is taking that candid documentary style to a broader audience, and bringing the fun approach with him.
When not out shooting or on the road exploring, Adam can be found at home in Highland Park Los Angeles with his wife Sarah and vocal dachshund Lemmy.
