Located in the beautiful Sierra Mountains of Northern Nevada, Lightray Studios was born out of a passion for storytelling through photography. George Anastassatos has operated his studio for the last eight years in Reno, Nevada.

Prior to moving to Reno, he spent the last fifteen years working as a photographer in the entertainment industry in Los Angeles, California. Overall, he brings over 23 years of experience to the field of photography. Lightray Studios primarily operates on-location throughout the Reno Tahoe region.

If your project requires a studio location, Lightray Studios has an in-home studio in Reno. Each photography session is unique and personalized to provide the greatest experience possible to clients. George is also available for global travel, upon request.

Creative Inspiration

“When I work I like to research the topic of photography to find a different way to tell a story visually. I like to speak to my client and listen to what their expectations are of the photography session and how I can capture and enhance that vision with my own ideas. I like to get to a location early and walk around, get a feel of where we are at, what are the smells, where is the light coming from, what kind of plants and trees are around. What kind of natural colors are prominent at the location and how can I use them visually when photographing my subject.

I enjoy getting to know people and find out what makes them laugh and smile, what they look forward to doing once they are done with their day. It could be walking in the door and seeing their children, pet, partner. It could be taking a walk with their dog or sitting on their porch with a warm cup of tea watching the sun set... Regardless, I am fascinated with people because we are all so different and I feel very blessed that I am able to photograph people and share a bit of each of them in the photographs that I capture.”

George Anastassatos, President of Lightray Studios
