Fabian has been capturing some of the most iconic images of Santa Monica, its beaches and world-famous Pier for years. Fabian is our go-to photographer for big events and memorable happenings. We have several of his artistic images displayed in the administration office for the Park. We highly recommend Fabian and his work.

"It is such an honor to write a review of excellence for the work and dedication to his craft for Fabian Lewkowicz. I have the pleasure of knowing Fabians work, because he has captured my work on so many occasions, the shopping cart tree. Some of my best record of not just the sculpture, but the team of community that builds it and the community that celebrates it, is captured in outstanding print and video, by Fabian. Thank you for such a talented eye, that captures the process that is captured in such moments. Our community is a better place with your effortless tending to how and what we create in each moment and the way you capture it. Thank you, for keeping an eye on everything wonderful about Santa Monica and it's people places and things. Thank you for also showing the celebration of our main street neighborhood at summer Soulstice. You are a gift, Fabian."

"I’ve owned my store at the end of Route 66 in Santa Monica for a decade now. In all that time, I’ve never seen anyone with more of a love or dedication to this city than Fabian. In addition to his work capturing the beauty of this place better than anyone, he is the kind of ambassador we can all be proud of...I call him Mr. Santa Monica! I absolutely love his work, and nothing keeps me connected more when I’m away than Fabian’s Santa Monica Close-Up! I can’t say enough about this good, good man." Cordially, Dan Rice Owner, 66-to-Cali

"Fabian puts art into pictures by capturing intense color, mood, and motion into the photographs he takes. With a focus on events, people, and images of sunsets and beaches in Santa Monica, he brings a special vibrancy to the finished product. I like to give photos by Fabian as gifts to people who visit—and those I visit, especially in other countries—that show the beauty and life of our city."

"Fabian is a pleasure to work with and his photographs and videos are superb. We at First United Methodist church in Santa Monica recently hired him to take publicity shots (photos & video) of our labyrinth. He occasionally takes footage from various community events we hold throughout the year and shares them on his Facebook page: Santa Monica Close Up. He does a wonderful job editing the footage to visually communicate what our church community is about. He is very much a staple in the Santa Monica community." Shalimar Carducci, First United Methodist Church in Santa Monica

"Fabian did a great job on my headshots! He worked with me and made sure that he knew what I wanted. He was also willing to take and lot of shots and take his time to make sure I had exactly what I needed. He even went above and beyond and came down to the pier to take some extra shots and shoot some video. The price was extremely reasonable. Fabian is a friendly guy who makes you feel relaxed in front of the camera. I highly recommend him." Groovin Moovin
