Earlier this year I had the opportunity to shoot alongside Atiba Jefferson for the “Latch” campaign for a new sunglass from Oakley. The Latch project was formed by a unique collective; Eric Koston, Atiba Jefferson, Sean Malto, and Curren Caples. My images were used to tell the story of Atiba, Sean, and Curren working together, and can be seen in print media, social networks, the Latch website, and posted on personal social networks by Oakley’s athletes. It was incredible to watch someone like Atiba work his magic behind the lens… I’m such a huge fan of his vision and work ethic.
Check out the Latch video created by my handsome husband, Kirk Dianda, and a sneak peak into the commercial shoot in DTLA.
Hello and welcome to the Amber B Bulletin. This a sampling of photo-shoots and creative endeavors that I took on over the past year. Have a look, be inspired, and remember to consider me as your next photographer.
JAC VANEK / FASHION PHOTOGRAPHY
Here is a sneak peek at the Jac Vanek Holiday ’14 and Spring ’15 photo-shoot. The images were featured at ENK in Las Vegas, and will be used throughout the catalog and marketing for the next two seasons.
JUXTAPOZ / TODD FRANCIS PORTRAITS
Juxtapoz magazine had a full-length feature on the always entertaining Todd Francis. The interview takes an in-depth look at his career, including an interview by Jeremy Fish, with portraits shot by me.
ELEMENT EDEN / PHOTOGRAPHY
Check out this larger-than-life photo of Amy Purdy that was featured in Times Square, NYC. This is a campaign that I shot for Element Eden, for the collection that Amy co-designed with them. I’m so proud of everything this amazing woman is doing, from competing at the Winter Olympics, to starring in Dancing With the Stars, and now launching her own book.
OAKLEY / MALIBU POOL PARTY
My husband and I recently got the green light to shoot a secret spot in Malibu. Here’s a few behind-the-scenes photos of Curren Caples, Rune Glifberg, and friends while Arto Saari and Kirk Dianda shoot the session for an upcoming Oakley ad campaign.
Here is a sampling of a few portraits that I shot recently. It’s inspiring, getting the chance to work with incredible people like Arto Saari, Jefferey Dietch, and Tony Hawk.
Artists Republic 4 Tomorrow Gallery asked me to be a part of the Art & Nature: New Contemporary exhibition. The show featured artists from all over the United States, and explored a contemporary interpretation of the natural world. I created a hand-sewn creature called Stumpy, who couldn’t understand why his girlfriend, Miss Chainsaw kept cutting him down.
OPEN HOUSE CREATIVE ARTSHOW
I was also invited to exhibit at the Open House Creative ‘Print or Dye’ exhibition. Each artist on display explored unique ways of print making which made for an eclectic collection of art.
WORMHOLE PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT
I’ve recently created a font made of worms that were hand cut to communicate sarcastic saying and things that people would normally be too shy to say. Check out the ongoing Wormhole series on my Instagram, and let me know what you want them to say next.
URBAN DECAY COSMETICS / PHOTOGRAPHY
Here’s Wende Zomnir, the founder of Urban Decay Cosmetics, in the new flagship store in Fashion Island, Newport Beach. This portrait and interior shots were featured in an L.A. Times article highlighting Wende, her brand, and store opening. I love meeting and working with inspiring people like Wendy who follow their passions.

Check out the new DC Shoes commercial for The Trase, created and directed by the handsome Kirk Dianda. We shot this project in studio over the span of a week with an amazing team and an arsenal of dream cameras. I have to say it’s one of the most fun and messy shoots I’ve ever been on. A big thank you to Ryan Young for your camera expertise, EJ for being the best Producer we’ve had the chance to work with, Deven Stephens for being down to create all these incredible visuals, and everyone else that made this happen.
Here are some behind the scenes photos I shot while on set.

AMBERGRIS ANIMATION from Amber B Dianda on Vimeo.
Here is a little stop motion I created for Instagram. It’s the story of Ambergris, a highly sort after stone found washed up on beaches around the world. It originates as the vomit of a Blue Whale and oxidizes into a precious ingredient used by perfumers.
The bourgeoisie happily douche themselves in Whale vomit to be more appealing!! That’s pretty funny if you ask me.

Well, 2013 really kicked me in the butt, and showered me with hugs and kisses!
I had the opportunity to travel the world, work with some incredible people, and was completely inspired by new and old friends along the way. And to top it off, we were adopted by two very beautiful cats; Blackie “Sabbath” Boo and Yeti.
I am eternally grateful for the love and support from our family and friends, and are wishing you all the love in the world for 2014. I look forward to creating magic with you in the year ahead.
