Arnold A
New York City
Canon EOS 5D Mark III; Canon EOS 6D
New York corporate photographer Arnold Adler has been capturing images with a sense of honesty and creativity for more than thirty years. He has a successful photography business with a rich variety of corporate, non-profit, editorial and private clients. That success is built on a dynamic, natural and spontaneous approach to photography. Arnie’s approach reflects his belief that the most captivating images in life are captured only when a subject is free, relaxed, and living in the moment…whether that moment is posed or spontaneous. In 1984, Arnie Adler was named the first staff photographer for the New York office of Crain Communications. He was part of the team that took Advertising Age from its identity as a staid media publication into a vibrant business magazine. His coverage of meetings, events, locations and industry parties, along with striking images of corporate movers and shakers are still seen in Craig’s New York Business regularly, as well as in other local and national media. Arnie Adler left Crain's in 1988, eager to shoot for a more diverse roster of clients. Today, his subjects include jittery wedding couples assured Fortune 500 executives, and famous/infamous faces, such as Hillary Clinton, Bernie Madoff, Bette Midler, Donald Trump, and Jerry Garcia. Arnie Adler’s passion for photography began when he was a teenager. While still in middle school he won first place in the Queens Borough Public Library photo contest. He has rarely been seen without a camera since. 'I photograph each project with the enthusiasm of it being my first. As a result, I have had thousands of satisfying assignments and satisfied clients for more than three decades.'

Calvin X
New York City
Canon EOS 6D; Canon EOS 70D
My name is Calvin and I've been shooting as a photographer since 2008. I started out working in various nightclubs, bars and lounges in New York City. It is at these venues and these conditions where I developed the technical skills and perspective on how to capture the moment at its finest. It was challenging and thrilling to operate in an environment that can be described as somewhat chaotic. As for my former manager said at the time, 'if you and your camera can survive getting hit by a Grey Goose bottle, you can survive anything'.

Ian A, New York City Photographer

Ian A

How did you get started with photography?

I actually got started in photography after funding our 1st few photoshoots for my wife's clothing line. From my perspective, it was quite the challenge to get the volume of photos I needed to present her line in the right light via social media, magazines ads/publications, catalogues and look books to grow the business. I thought the cost was too high, too many restrictions, and the price to get good photographer cost more than the entire collection and models combined, so I decided to get into it myself. I've always had somewhat of an eye for it, but I quickly learned that to make an amazing photo that was indicative of her brand, I'd have to invest in coursework to learn the equipment, coursework to learn great composition, and invest in a great camera body, with superior glass (lenses).

What type of shoots do you enjoy doing the most?

I enjoy doing Portraits and Portrait Candids the most, because they tell such an authentic story that's unplanned, unscripted, that provokes your imagination with unexplained optimism and resolve.

What are some of your favorite places in New York City to take photographs?

I live in NYC area and Minneapolis, thus I have a lot places that are location favs. In NYC, my favs are: SoHo, Chelsea, Brooklyn Heights, Inspiration Point, and The Cloisters area. In Minneapolis area: St. Paul, Split Rock, Two Harbors, and multiple spots around downtown. It's tough to shoot their in winter though :-).
