Publications & Clients

Photography is not about perfection, it’s usually the imperfection that painted our stories, our memories. Photography is about capturing those memories for us, so that even after we’ve aged, they’ll stay young and beautiful forever.

Miss Haiti, Hollywood Actress

Dali is an absolute pleasure to work with: he’s the consummate professional, artistic visionary, and friendly coach all wrapped up into one. As an actor, I find it hard to not put on a character and just be me — ironically, photos are very uncomfortable for me and I often feel awkward posing. But Dali is such a sweet soul, he makes me feel perfectly at ease and even makes it look like I know what I’m doing!

Angela Zhou

Supergirl TV Series, Hollywood Actress

Dali Ma is one of the best photographers I have worked with. He is so knowledgeable about lighting and his camera settings that the photos barely need any work in photoshop. He isn’t one of those who just picks up a camera and hopes to get a couple of good shots out of hundreds.  Every one of his photos is usable. He really knows his stuff.
