Rennie Solis was raised in Napa Valley, Northern California where he grew up running through vineyards, creating adventures and making memories fit for a picture. He then took to skateboarding, and playing drums in his high school band. Rennie’s first photos were taken side stage of the Bay Area music scene – documenting his friends with the Nikon FM his uncle gave him. His camera then became a necessary appendage. At a young age he knew that photography would play a huge role in his life.
After a few tours with his band and years of making homemade skate videos, Rennie attended the Academy of Art College in San Francisco for film. Shortly thereafter he attended Brooks Institute for Photography in Santa Barbara where he flourished, and could take photos, film, and surf everyday.
After Brooks Rennie moved to NYC, where he assisted and developed his skills. He captured images and took polaroids of his friends, music bands, parties, and the culture that surrounded him whenever he had the opportunity…
Today, Rennie still loves film, being on set, and creating, and equally taking photos and documenting moments that inspire real feeling. Rennie’s gift for shooting these candid images/films are now widely commissioned from global clients such as Nike, Apple, Sony, Target, Converse, Vans, Nordstrom, and Microsoft. We are proud that he is working as well with it our production and photo agency based in London.
