Featured photographer -- Randy Santos: images of Washington DC

Randy Santos is a photographer whose artistic vision and unique personal perspective on the world around him has established him as one of the Washington DC area’s preeminent photographers. He specializes in creating iconic stock images of Washington DC, selling them through his own company, dcstockimages, which is housed on the PhotoShelter platform.  He lives in the DC area and so is always ready to capture the city in its best light. His photographs appear in commercial advertising, coffee table books, calendars, and as fine art prints.

A native Washingtonian with over 30 years of photographic experience, Randy’s work reflects his passion and drive for creative self-expression, a mastery of the medium of photography, and his love for the architectural beauty and history found in his hometown. This spring his images will be featured in the book,  "WASHINGTON D.C.: A PHOTOGRAPHIC PORTRAIT".

Randy does most of his photography on a Canon 5d camera with a complete assortment of the Canon pro zooms. Below are a sampling of some of his photos of DC. To see more, visit his website listed above.
