Welcome to Pictarus, a premiere Southern California special and sporting event photography company. Pictarus was started in 2012 by Jeff Henderson in his desire to have a way to share his photo and video skills and love for shooting with the local community. Pictarus represents the customer facing site that facilitates easy purchasing or downloading of great photos of your son, daughter, family member, friend or teammate. To assist the local photographer, Picatarus is also renting out their equipment for your special occasion. Check out our new Equipment Rental page for more information!

Pictarus provides still photography capabilities using the best equipment from Nikon, with a Nikon D4s (16 megapixel, 11 frames per second for great high-speed sports shots) and Nikon D810 (36 megapixels for amazing enlargements, 5 frames per second) currently in use. A wide variety of professional lenses are also at our disposal, including the 24-70mm f/2.8, 70-200mm f/2.8 VR II, 200-400mm f/4 VR II, 300mm f/2.8, 85mm f/1.4G, and many more! Professional lighting is also available for portraiture and other special needs.

Pictarus has recently jumped into the video market in a big way! Pictarus has begun integrating 4k production into it's capabilities, utilizing two 4k cameras - the Sony PXW-Z100 and the FDR-AX100 cameras! Utilize Pictarus' services to capture today's events in tomorrow's technologies! HD footage is also available from these cameras, as well as from the Nikon bodies listed above. GoPro 1080p/60 footage is also available as needed as well!

We are based in Marina Del Rey, CA and are currently available to shoot events from Santa Barbara to San Diego. Please contact us if you have any question or would like to book Pictarus for an upcoming event!
