Fell in love with photography when I was just a little kid; to me it was - and still is -magic. Started getting more serious about the craft in 1989 at Hofstra University and was blessed with some very knowledgeable professors. Got the photojournalism bug, had romantic dreams of flying off to distant lands, photographing conflict, famine and generally anything involving personal risk. Thank goodness THAT never happened. Landed a job with Newsday right out of college in 1994. Honed my skills working for five years with an incredibly talented staff of veteran photographers. Left in 1999 for graduate school at the prestigious Ohio University School of Visual Communications. Returned to New York and was hired as a photo editor for The Associated Press in 2001. Earned my Master of Arts in Visual Communications in 2003. Hired for a dream job in 2005 as corporate photographer for the NASDAQ Stock Market, spending the next four years meeting and photographing executives of the most influential corporations in America, as well as numerous celebrities. Running my own photography business since 2009.

camera Canon EOS 6D Mark II

Clarita Alave has always had an interest in photography, ever since she was a child. It wasn't until 2016 though that she truly started to hone her skills as a photographer. She attended the International Center of Photography School (ICP). It was here that she learned how to work with a DSLR camera and began experimenting almost exclusively in manual mode. In addition, she became proficient in post-processing images using programs such as Adobe Lightroom and Adobe photoshop. Furthermore, she has been gaining experience working with off-camera flash. Clarita started out shooting landscapes but eventually found that she preferred shooting portraits. She is currently focusing on high fashion, weddings and events, and family portraits. She has attended a number of workshops throughout NYC, Boston, and San Francisco. These workshops focused on a wide array of topics, such as, how to style a wedding, how to manage a photography business, the legal side of a photography business, how to take headshots, handling difficult clients/how to direct models, and how to properly use a flash for both men and women. Clarita is taking her lifelong love of photography and implementing it in ways that are positive for both her and her clients.

How did you get started with photography

I got started with photography when I moved to Portugal and started traveling around the country. I wanted to be able to create memories and art at the same time.

What do you love about your job?

I love proving that everyone can look good in the photos. I love seeing my clients happy when I show them the results of our photo shoot, and I love how people can discover new places with my travel photos.

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

My favourite place to shoot in New York City is Central Park. It has so many different places, it feels like it has a spot for every occasion - engagement, wedding, fashion or just a portrait to keep some memories of NYC. The contrast between skyscrapers and nature makes it an amazing place to shoot. Some of my other favourite locations are Riverside Park, East River State Park, South Street Port and Botanical Garden.
