An award-winning commercial, editorial and fine-art photographer, Ethan Pines has created some of the most iconic portraits of our time. He believes that the unequaled power of photography is its ability to say, This unique moment happened in front of the camera. This person and I shared and collaborated on this experience. Allow me to share it with you. It will never happen the same way again.

Highlights of his 20-year career include photographing Elon Musk, Ethereum creator Vitalik Buterin, Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes (his riveting portrait became the poster for the HBO documentary on her), Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai, Instagram founder Kevin Systrom, Uber founder Travis Kalanick, Shaquille O’Neal, Jackie Chan, Kesha, and countless other celebrities and tech luminaries.

His work has spanned ad campaigns for Dolby, Genentech, SolarCity, Universal Studios and others; regular editorial projects for Forbes, Wired, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal; numerous group exhibitions; and a solo show at New Theme gallery in Los Angeles. He’s been honored by the Communication Arts Photo Annual, the Graphis Photography Annual, the American Photography Annual and the International Photography Awards.

A skier, backpacker and Nitrox-certified scuba diver, he lives in Topanga, CA, with his wife, his daughter, some deer, and a bunch of spiders and weeds.
