About Us

Inner Vision Images was founded in 2004 by Sacramento husband-and-wife photographers Steve and Lee Folino. As a full-time, professional photographer with 35-plus years of experience, Steve manages the business, photographs most of the studio sessions and deals with all of the commercial clients and projects. Lee, as a part-time photographer, shoots the on-location sessions and any weddings, events and life’s celebrations. Lee also assists Steve on a variety of his projects – they are a great team.

Steve is a member of the Professional Photographers of America, the Professional Photographers of California (2015 & 2016 Vice-President) and the Professional Photographers of Sacramento Valley, where he is completed serving a third term as association President (2013-1015).  He is also a member of the American Society of Media Photographers, the National Association of Photoshop Professionals, the American Society of Photographers and the Natomas Chamber of Commerce.  He is also active in the Greater Sacramento Kiwanis where he serves as the club’s and foundation’s treasurer.

Steve is a Certified Professional Photographer (CPP) and CPP Liaison. CPP Liaisons assist candidates and existing CPPs as subject matter experts and sources of information. Each liaison must maintain his or her certification and PPA membership, and is entrusted with responsibilities to maintain the integrity of the program.

In 2011 Steve was awarded the coveted Photographer of the Year award for his outstanding landscape and nature images by the Professional Photographers of Sacramento Valley.  In 2012 he was awarded Photographer of the Year in the Commercial and Open Illustration categories. In 2013 he earned PPA’s Photographic Craftsman degree for his contribution to the photographic profession as a speaker and author. In 2014 he was awarded Commercial Photographer of the Year. He has won over thirty prestigious local, regional and national awards and has had his images accepted into the prestigious PPA Loan Collection.

Inner Vision Images has been nominated as Sacramento’s Best Photographer on the KCRA “A-List” every year since the studio opened.  Steve’s images have been published and used on websites, in textbooks, travel brochures, marketing materials, comp cards, by restaurants, food bloggers and cookbooks authors.

By operating their photography studio in their home, Inner Vision Images is able to offer their clients additional services and conveniences that big-box and mall-based studios simply can’t offer.  Their home studio creates a one-of-a-kind, relaxed, boutique-like atmosphere.

Inner Vision Images’ philosophy is simple:

  • We work for our clients.
  • You are our priority, and meeting your photographic needs is our main concern.
  • We want your experiences as our client to be as effortless and enjoyable as possible.
  • We aim to produce the results that you want.
  • We specialize in the extraordinary.
