Russ Curtis grew up in Santa Monica, California and has been photographing since the early 1970s when he got a Kodak X-15 camera for Christmas. The $20 camera used 126 film cartridges, Magicube flashes and had only fixed focus, but he was hooked.

He holds a B.A. in Journalism degree from Cal State Long Beach and did additional multimedia studies at San Francisco State University. Over the years, he worked for the LA Daily News, LA Times. The Recorder (ALM) and the Associated Press.

Based in San Francisco, Russ specializes in capturing people and events for corporations, magazines, and individuals.

He delivers well-composed, excellently lit photographs in digital file format or on traditional film. Many of his stock images are represented by Photo Researchers in New York.
