About

"The shortest distance between a human and the truth is a story" - Cynthia Brix

My name is Brittany App. I am a story teller - a professional photographer and a documentary filmmaker. My photography business, App's Photography, is based in beautiful San Luis Obispo, California. I serve clients locally, and I travel throughout California, nationally, and internationally for work. I specialize in lifestyle and landscape photography, marketing, commercial photography, tourism campaigns, events, weddings and portraits. I am curious. Insatiable. Eager to collaborate and co-create a healthy happy world in which there is room for everyone.

I have photographed in over 27 countries, sailed around the world twice as the shipboard photographer for Semester at Sea, pedaled a bicycle across the United States of America to raise money for WaterAid, shaved my head, fractured a rib, hiked to the bottom of the Grand Canyon, received awards for my images, fallen in love, married my best friend, laughed, cried, lived, loved. And the adventure is only beginning..... 

I have recently embarked on the most fulfilling project of my career yet - the production of my first feature-length documentary film, titled "Where There Once Was Water".
