Nels Akerlund Photography + Video offers commercial photography and video to a diverse global clientele. Nels Akerlund started his career as an intern for a Washington, D.C. photographer working at the White House during the Reagan administration in 1985. Since then, he’s been joined by his business partner and wife, Anna, and together they have photographed world leaders, music legends, politicians, and icons of this generation. Their years of experience have given them the privilege to work with the National Geographic Society, The New York Times, Architectural Record, and on international campaigns for Siemens and Danfoss. Their photography has been described as "gorgeous and thoughtful" by the San Francisco Chronicle, and published in nine books and in publications worldwide. With assignments in each of the 50 United States and extensive travels over five continents, they have the experience to produce dynamic images in any environment.
