Howdy -

I'm Hunter Gawne, (yes I know, I look like Owen Wilson) 

 I wear a lot of hats (literally and figuratively) I'm a Director, occasionally a producer and a photographer with a focus on commercial and lifestyle and a touch of adventure. I'm currently based in Southern California and over the past 7 years I've photographed people and cultures all over the globe, whether it be for a campaign, assignment, or a personal project. From 2020-2022 I had the pleasure of being head of photo at Jaxxon  where I was leading out large scale on-location and in- studio campaigns and projects. When I’m not in the studio or out shooting, you can find me surfing, ripping around on motos with friends, sipping on a Juneshine or camping in the dirt somewhere.

..maybe even all of those things at the same time haha  

If my style aligns with your project or company, or you just want to connect, let’s connect!

I look forward to hearing from you!
