Calvin X.

camera 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".

camera Canon EOS 6D

Stephanie Santos started Morning Bird Photography April of 2015. A Rio de Janeiro native, beauty has been abundant before my eyes since childhood. Nothing inspires me more than being able to portray people's natural beauty back to them. My focus is to let your essence shine as classy, edgy, regal, modern, quirky or whatever it may be. After four years in New York, I still get a major kick out of discovering new parts of the city introduced as my client's favorite areas. My style is best described as documentary portraiture. I just call myself a "people person photographer" who loves early mornings.

Arnold A.
New York City
starstarstarstarstar
camera 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."
