About Us

Internationally published, Atlanta Photographer Renae Johnson of realm studios, LLC (formally clm studios) is the definition of a true visual artist! A native of the DC Metro area by way of a small town in Virginia, Renae began her love of photography upon receiving her very 1st camera at the age of 12. It wasn’t however, until many years later in 2004 that Renae stumbled upon the possibility of turning her pastime into a profession! After receiving praise for her portraiture by a prominent photojournalist from the Washington Post, the recognition of her gift, coupled with the encouragement of her family catapulted Renae to the forefront of her destiny! No more than a year later, Renae ventured into part ownership of her first D.C based lifestyle photography company.


In 2006, a relocation to Atlanta, GA & the endless possibilities of fresh faces in a new market inspired Renae to move forward in her solo launch of “CLM Studios (which is now realm studios)”. A full service “boutique” photography experience specializing in Beauty and Fashion Portraiture, with additional services offered in high school senior and portrait photography. “There is something magical about capturing a moment in time,” says Renae.  I strive to pause & perfect pieces of time that will both honor & engage my clients, for moments & lifetimes to come”!


Renae’s resume boasts Photographer credits for a plethora of shoots with clients including:  JEZEBEL Magazine, FaceOn Magazine (UK), Elements Magazine, Mod Magazine, KONVICT Apparel, Zen Africa Magazine and Upscale Magazine  & entertainers like Keshia Knight Pulliam (Rudy Huxtable), Kenny Lattimore, Trina Braxton and ANTM contestants.  Renae has also had the privilege to work on major sets to include Bravo TV, WE TV, Essence Magazine, BET, Nicki Minaj, Kelly Rowland & Brandy just to name a few!
