About Be Water Photo

Be Water Photo is your one-stop shop for any Southern California photo needs. An industry leader with a track record of exceeding client expectations, we’ve been cranking out distinct, compelling and reliable images in San Diego for more than five years.

Want to see our work? Look to almost every major nightclub, production company, or SD magazine to see our work.

Need an event covered? You’re at the right place. Parties are our bread and butter. We’ve opened, closed and hosted some of the hottest nightclubs in town. We rock out for private events as well as city-funded block parties with thousands of revelers. If it’s happened in the Gaslamp, odds are we’ve shot it. And we can shoot it for you.

We strive to meet our clients’ visions. We wouldn’t be here without the relationships we have built through consistent, quality results. Every day we fight to capture brilliant images for clients to brand themselves, their product, their space or their company. Now we want to build a relationship with you.

Once we’ve helped you build your brand, we want you to come to us to document the landmark moments of your personal life. Whether it’s a family portrait, a wedding or a night on the town with friends celebrating, we want to help you capture those images so they last a lifetime.

Our goal is your trust and admiration. When you need a photographer, we want you to think of our many talented professionals to take care of your needs.

My name is John Audley. This is my plan for you and your photo needs. While Be Water Photo is my business, it’s also my dream, passion and personal calling. My staff and the community I work and live in have helped this dream come to fruition The results speak for themselves in the product and relationships built. 

You give us the form.  We’ll take a picture and capture the shape. We’re out here to capture that photo for you worth 1000 words and more.

Yes, my name really is Neon.

Mike Regala


Mike defies the stereotype: he’s a reasonably good driver and he doesn’t eat anything with the head still attached. But boy does he love photography.

Photography allows me to freeze time so that later on you can recall the great events and amazing experiences.
