About Me

Welcome to my website! I am Damon Tarver, and I love capturing moments through photography. Whether on the sidelines of a football game out on location or in my new studio, I am committed to capturing moments that will live on forever through photographs.


My love for Sports Photography comes from my days as an offensive tackle for the Spartans of San Jose State University. While fans remember games, I remember moments only the athlete will remember. These moments in my mind were rarely captured in photos . . . I know those moments fly by so fast. I love the challenge of capturing them for the athlete and their family, as well as the sporting organization or school.


My Portrait Photography principle is the same: moments. Typical portraits are staged, posed, and lacking in the personality and motion of life that so defines the subject. In my portrait sessions I strive to capture the personality, when you catch a glimpse of the soul and essence of the person.


I call these all “signature moments”. If you've ever caught your breath and wished you could freeze time, then you understand what a “signature moment” is. I know you have “signature moments” waiting to be captured . . . contact me today.
