About - Toby Ogden Photography

Hello, I am Toby, I grew up in North County San Diego and I've  spent most of my  life in the ocean surfing as I still do to this day.  I started my  photography career after transitioning from a professional surfer to becoming an athlete marketing manager. While traveling to beautiful exotic places around the world, I was developing my passion for photography. I was quickly transitioned to be the staff photographer for  a major lifestyle brand in Southern California.

While honing in on the technical skills I  was able to do a variety of photography from underwater, action, commercial and high fashion all while contributing to different magazines and websites. I was able to learn about a variety of photography in a short amount of time.

My  passion for photography would develop into more than a job but just a way of life.  I photograph close to 100 weddings and I absolutely love it! When I'm not shooting weddings, I am always looking to improve my skills and capture all the beauty that I encounter with landscapes, ocean coastal elements and anything to do with water.

Being a photographer has always been a dream and I feel so lucky that I get to do this, thank you for the support!
