Hey, I’m Kai Mallari

I'm an award-winning commercial editorial photographer turned technical artist.

I work with agencies in the US and Canada, ensuring your vision comes to life with a robust production workflow built on a history of successfully executing complex projects for brands like American Express, Best Buy, Kim Crawford Wines, and more.

I have a background in photography, compositing, 3D, animation, and coding.

When I’m not working on commercial projects you'll find me developing systems to help make creativity more accessible (and more profitable) for content creators, startups and small business owners.

I want to say a big thank you to Kai for all the times we've worked together.

He is seriously talented at what he does, and it's been a blast collaborating with him.

I love how organized he is! It makes a world of difference. His structured approach has been instrumental in keeping everything on track. It's a breath of fresh air to work with someone who understands the importance of organization.

I appreciate his attention to detail — the way he always asks the right questions to help move the project efficiently — the way he suggests different approaches for better solutions.

We had the pleasure of working with Kai Mallari for 7 months. During this time, he produced beautiful product photography alongside lifestyle and video shoots as well.

Kai is a multi-faceted, detailed technical photographer who produces high-quality, luxury photographs. He is passionate about photography, with a keen eye for elegance and beauty, which is evident in his work. He creates photographs, videos and 3D images with ease, regardless of how challenging the ask may be.

Kai sets high standards for himself and his work, ensuring that he exceeds those standards from the pre-planning stage all the way through to the editing/completion phase. He is reliable, holding himself accountable for any task and timeline he is given, remaining dedicated to the end goal of a high-quality product.

We have enjoyed working alongside of Kai and know that he is an asset to any company he chooses to work with.

I work with Kai for higher-end, perfection looking stuff. I'm not going to trust someone else with that.

He's quite detail-oriented.

A huge thank you for taking the portraits at the gala and photos for the opening of the new hospital wings.

All the photos were beautiful.

Kai proved to be flexible, thoughtful and talented. His initiative, experience and professional work ethic allowed us all to enjoy the day that raised more than $500,000.

We knew the photography would be fantastic.
