Don Cole

Hi, I’m Don. I’ve studied everything I can about photography and have loved living and working here in San Diego since 1980. People have been appreciating my photography all my life and professionally since 1994. My specialty is People Photography; documenting you and your events with still images. By working closely with you, I’ll create fun images and capture action as it happens at your event. After a life event like a Wedding or milestone birthday I like to put your images together into a memorable story. That story can then be bound into a fabulous, long lasting, volume for you to share with family and friends for generations.

Photography awards are fun, being published in national magazines is great too. However, what I feel is more important than awards or prizes is my customer’s appreciation for what I am able to do for them. When you join the ever growing PBDC Family, the style and mood of your images starts and ends with you. I bring all my experience and imagination to bear at your event or photo session to capture exactly what you’ve dreamed, planned and prepared so hard for. I’m there to preserve the excitement, joy, emotion, and warmth that is truly yours.

Many people ask me “What’s your style?”. I offer both studio and candid photography so I can deliver whatever technical style you want. I like to provide you a seamless blend of documentary (or photo-journalistic) imagery and traditional casually posed photographs. This level of flexible complexity assures that you’ll see exactly what you like in the pictures I deliver. For example, if you favor traditional posed work with studio style backgrounds and highly technical lighting, shouldn’t you have it? Or, maybe you’ve decided that formal photos aren’t really your thing. I’ll concentrate on you and your activities. Let the day unfold around you. Then you can be surprised with the amazing images from the day.

Regardless of your picture preference, you’ll love my detailed, easygoing, low key approach combined with personal attention, professionalism and support for all your photography needs. My goal is to tell your story with the most beautiful pictures using the highest quality products on the market today.
