Through his photos, award winning photographer Myron Beck (Los Angeles, CA) inspires us to dream and embrace the beauty that surrounds us in the people we see, the environments in which we thrive and the diverse cultures that enrich our lives. 

Myron BeckMYRON BECK, Photographer

For more than 25 years, Myron Beck has established himself as a respected, award-winning advertising photographer. Having learned his craft at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, his professional emphasis is food, still life and product imagery. Myron constantly seeks to expand his subject matter and his work includes a vast life-style portfolio of people and animals.

Myron’s ambition is to capture life's real moments and speak to an audience viscerally, touching both mind and soul. His creative vision produces highly effective, quality work that inspires, motivates and captures the extraordinary in what is often an ordinary world.

In addition to his commercial work, Myron has spent more than two decades passionately documenting the unmatched scenic beauty of the western United States and the people who live, work and call it home. It was during his early exploration of Utah and the Zion National Park area that he became engrossed by a way of life that is larger and more beautiful than anything he had ever experienced.

In addition to his skill as a photographer, Myron has also built a fine portfolio of paintings. He resides In La Crescenta, California with his wife, Mary, and their two daughters, Haleigh and Morgan.

Bonanza Ranch SaloonThe photo this month is by Steve Bundy - Bonanza Ranch Saloon 

My goal is to capture and preserve the vast landscapes, crumbling buildings, rusting forgotten cars and evidence of diverse cultures that I find along the way between southern California and northern New Mexico - giving them new recognition, preserving them as they erode, before they melt back into the earth. When people view my images it is my hope that they see beyond my vision and experience their own feelings and emotions. Hopefully through my eyes they might gain a new perspective and see their world in a new and expanded way.
