Editorial storytelling is actually the reason I became a photographer. Once upon a time, I was an editor at an alt-weekly, and I wanted to create more cohesion between my written word and the accompanying imagery. And lo, I picked up a camera and merged the two storytelling art forms. I still bring that passion and sense of purpose to every shoot, I just don't write any more.

Editorial photography that tells the whole story.


To create cohesion. 

I love working with editors and writers to brainstorm how I can craft a compelling accompaniment to the written word. After all, that’s why I became a photographer years ago.



To serve the story.

I’ll create editorial photography that stands on its own. But my main goal is to serve the greater story. I want to help craft a visual narrative to bring the audience in and keep them there.



To give you what you need and more.

I’ll go above and beyond for the editor and the art department. I’m savvy in punching together photo essays, in addition to delivering many options so that the creative team has flexibility with layout options.

MUSE Magazine, VisitUtah.com

"Austen been great to work with and is extremely talented. The quality and creativity of his photos is outstanding, a perfect fit for Salt Lake magazine. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a commercial and editorial photographer."

"It's such a pleasure to collaborate with Austen Diamond on editorial projects, whether he's photographing a reluctant cover subject, or writing and photographing a series he pitched. He asks the right questions, understands what the assignment requires, and is always willing to try another shot or another angle or find another scene to help us achieve our shared goals for the story. He just gets it."
