 A family friend placed a camera in Adam Traum's hands when he was 12 years old. A few weeks later a package arrived with a set of contact sheets made from the film he shot and he never looked back.

He went on to study photography at Ithaca College, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Cinema and Photography in 1989.  In early 2000, Adam left his position as a Staff Photographer at The Savannah Morning News in Savannah, GA, to create Adam Traum Photography, and later Adam Traum Media, in the San Francisco Bay Area. 

Adam draws on his 18 years as a general assignment photographer at a variety of newspapers and news agencies to get great images for his clientele. He allows the moments to speak for themselves and quietly captures details that a busy bride, Event Planner or PR Manager may not have time to notice. He also know when to step up and take charge of a shoot when needed.

As a working musician, Adam Traum has a special place in his heart for photographing local and national bands and musicians. He has photographed such artists as Bob Dylan, Dr. John, Emmylou Harris, Earl Klugh, Jorma Kaukonen and many more! 

He utilizes both 35mm film and digital equipment and offers a variety of services and packages for all of your multi-media needs.
