A Fashion Photographer Unlike Any Other

By Sandy Rodriguez

Longtime Heart Of Hollywood Magazine photographer and friend Ernie Tyler received an award for his extraordinary Fashion Photography from the Inland Valley Business and Community Foundation at a Fire Up Connect live event this October.

Ernie has shot some of the most-loved Heart Of Hollywood Magazine covers, including the one for our very first issue.

He is known not only as a fashion photographer, but also for his spectacular sports photography. He allows his subjects’ personalities to shine through by putting them at ease with his professional yet warm demeanor. He is equally loved by beauty queens and beach volleyball players and anyone else fortunate enough to be in front of his camera lens.

Ernie regularly attends exciting fashion and entertainment events, from designer runways to film festivals. He is considered a celebrity in his own right.

Heart Of Hollywood Magazine is proud of this wonderful photographer. Shots from the Pioneertown Film Festival are among some of his most recent work featured in our publication.
