Adam Dillon

Based in San Francisco.




As a photographer, I aspire to capture moments that convey the vision of every brand, company, or client that myself and my crews have had the pleasure of working with. My ability to bring an open energy on set allows me to intertwine true emotion and creative concepts, while providing the best production value. I am inspired by the relationships created through collaborations with like-minded creatives. Life is about sharing stories through snapshots of our lives, lived beautifully.

Starting out as a photoshop nerd in high school, I began to take photos of the local bands and friends all over town. Over time this led me to eventually working with modeling agencies, signing on as a model, and going in depth into the industry itself to see what it's like to be in front of the camera. Transitioning from model into digitech, I began to see the world of production and how to bring great ideas into play on a large scale. After interning for some time with We Are the Rhoads I stepped into the role of Global Lead of Photography at PayPal and saw the other side of the creation process and how the other side of the industry lives. Now I'm a full time photographer pursuing the commercial world with audacity, efficiency, and a love for people. You'll find me hanging out with musicians, planning my next shoot, or figuring out the best new cocktail to learn how to make.

I also started a podcast to talk about photography and create community for creatives. It’s called “Devil in the Details.
