It All Started with Picture

Thanks for stopping by. My name’s Ty Swartz, and I’m an Educator, Marketer, and Photojournalist based in Virginia Beach where I make cool things for small businesses and companies around the globe. If you like my work, then don’t hesitate to reach out.

I am already known internationally for creating great environmental portraits of people being themselves. I started my photographic journey in 1986 and fortunate enough to have traveled to over 60 countries as a photojournalistic storyteller. I’m continually evolving my style as my client’s ideas and needs grow. I have many bold ideas, and I’m excited to share them with you.


But firstly it’s about jaw dropping, awe inspiring, surprising and well composed stories told through the lens of the beholder. Make sure you look through my portfolios and have a chat with me about your next project.

I Love My Clients

Desiré Marie

“When I first heard and saw Ty's work I knew he was the photographer for me. He was Attentive and PROFESSIONAL. He even provided me with a selection of wine and snacks while I was the make-up artist and stylist. During my boudoir session, he was WELCOMING, PREPARED, AND HE LISTENED TO ALL MY SUGGESTIONS. Because of his talented and artistic eye, my boudoir photos are PHENOMENAL!! My instincts were right. He made me feel extremely comfortable. I am not a huge fan of being in front of the camera but he helped me with poses and angles that worked best for my body type. If I asked or showed any sign of curiosity he would stop momentarily and give me a short briefing on amazing results. My experience with him was so enjoyable and the photos are BREATHTAKING!!! He not only flawlessly captured memorable moments but he also made the whole experience beyond fun. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND TY TO ANYONE AND EVERYONE.”
