camera Canon EOS-1D Mark IV; Canon EOS 600D (Rebel T3i)

Hello, I am a Manhattan based Editorial, Portrait, Lifestyle, and Food/Bev Photographer. I have extensive work with commercial - both marketing campaigns and product - as well as food and beverage. My passion comes from traveling and capturing moments, things, places I wanted people to see even if they were not there. It became a professional career once I realized I loved sharing my photographs & could turn it into something substantial. and, hey - I was pretty good at it. Highlights of my photography experience and skills: 1. Versatile in working with multiple creative teams and have extensive experience with Art and Creative Directors as well as Marketing executives. 2. Worked with & developed large teams with MUA, assistants, and models. 3. Have expertise in photo editing for clients within Lightroom and Photoshop. Ability to use Indesign as well for layouts and other creative additions to projects. My style is dramatic and bright when needed. I like to complete my shoots with minimal to little need for post processing edits. I use bokeh techniques in my photographs to show/create the emotions, product, and/or feeling. Additionally, I love using both natural and strobe lighting to get the dramatic effects for finished photographs. I like to show up ready to go and with energy to help clients through the process. There is nothing more unnerving for clients than having their business budgets and marketing budgets rely upon my work. Realizing this, I engage frequently and communicate thoroughly with the teams on shoots and projects.

camera Canon EOS 70D

Hi there, I’m Matt, a portrait and headshot photographer, based on the Upper West Side, New York City. I have a private studio on the UWS, but love shooting outdoors and on location. The most rewarding photograph for me is the one where the subject sees something in their photo they've never seen before. I love working with the client to bring something out of them - an expression, a look, a subtlety, a vulnerable, intriguing or beautiful side of themselves that they haven't seen before in a photo. But even in non-directed shoots (events, parties, concerts), I still love focusing on capturing the essence of the person or moment. Portrait and headshot shoots are my favorite because of the personal nature of them. I love listening to a client, seeing them settle in to a shoot, seeing them become more comfortable, guiding and directing them and really - getting to know someone. The true joy in photography for me however, is actually nothing do to with the camera. Seeing the joy someone gets in seeing themselves in a way they've never have before, finding new a confidence, seeing their own beauty, seeing someone achieve their career goals or dreams with their new photos, is really the true satisfaction. Whatever your photo needs might be, I'll look forward to working together!

What sets my work apart is my ability to capture people in a revealing and genuine manner, along with a strong sense of style, technical chops, and attention to detail. I describe my work as candid, and honest. Sure, I’ll do the posey stuff and make sure we stage the important shots, but I know that the “real moments” are those that the client will love the most. I love getting to know new people and situations, capturing the emotions and the interactions to create beautiful heirloom-quality photographs they will absolutely love.

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".

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."
