Welcome to my website and blog showing my work as an Albany NY commercial photographer. With my base in the state capitol of New York, I have great access to many different cities and regions across New York, Pennsylvania, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Connecticut.
Let me hear about your photography and visual communications needs. I’m always able to find a way to help clients get the images they need for their advertising, public relations, internal communications or editorial publication needs.
By finding me, you’ve found a business photography specialist who is dedicated to working regularly for:
My clients include manufacturers, corporations and industries that serve narrow-specific or general sectors of the B2B and consumer marketplaces.
I’m frequently commissioned by financial services companies and publications. Brought on board for major as well as small projects for law firms. Out in the field, as I don’t work in the safety of a studio, I’m regularly working with farmers and educators, CEO’s and line workers.
I’ll often be hired by publications and public relations firms who value my decades of work as a former full time news photographer. That experience brings an agility and adaptability that I an use to problem solve, pivot while on site and make subjects comfortable while squeezing the maximum potential from a subject’s time, a location’s potential, or the constraints of your budget.
In short, my work as an Albany commercial photographer has me handing a diverse set of businesses and locations for businesspeople who do business. You won’t be sidetracked by irrelevant photos of consumer oriented photography as you review my website and blog. And you won;\’t have to worry that this diverse photographer with a large skill set is really a jack of all trades, vying for any and all work that they can capture just to survive.
Working as a commercial photographer for decades gives me the skills to handle your corporate communications, advertising, and public relations photography projects.
My career began as a news photojournalist, baptizing me in the world of fast moving situations with technical and social challenges which required me to come out the other side with graphically compelling images which were technically competent … which connected with viewers and communicated a story.
My decades of working as a commercial photographer have given me the skill to pre visualize and think through an assignment, giving you the images you need while knowing the maximum potential has been obtained from the time we have, the subjects that are available to us or the constraints of your budget.
Essentially it is someone who creates photography for commerce; for enabling the end-user to use the photography to create revenue or develop business or markets.
And a good commercial photographer, as well as one who is experienced, is someone who will know how to assemble and fit into a team. Most often B2B and B2C projects for corporations and to a lesser degree, editorial projects, are team driven. Sometimes it is just myself with one or two people. Other times we are out shooting on an agricultural location with assistants, a video crew, agency representatives, client representatives, producers, talent, hair and makeup, art directors and potentially safety and security people. And a good commercial photographer knows how to work with and balance themselves “into” this huge team that is bringing your images to life. Without attitude, struggles or counterproductive resignation.
Take this image for example. It was shot in the milking parlor of a barn. A challenging, dark environment. Leveraging the scant existing light, I brought in some auxiliary light to add the sense of dimension and color you see, visually separating the field rep from her environment and making the location look good. And I did it fast.
This was a good example of a fast moving, on the fly, broad coverage type of assignment for a corporate client. On an assignment like this my responsibilities include getting the location selected and the message of the image nailed down while working with the busy subject who was inserting themselves into a working environment that we couldn’t disrupt for too long. Then moving on and doing it all over again … 17 more times that day. By myself.
People look at my portfolio and often step back saying “we don’t have anything that looks like that hereat our business” Well my answer is always “neither did they”. Let’s see what magic we can work at your location.
As an annual report photographer, clients have relied on me to handle a widely varying set of challenges in variable conditions out in the field, away from the comfort and safety of the studio. As a photojournalist, I worked under the same conditions.
So trust that you’ll be hiring someone seasoned by working in the field over many years. Someone with the experience and people skills who can make your shoot go smoothly and keep your subjects comfortable. Someone who won’t annoy the executives nor disrupt the workers. Someone who can keep going with a Power Bar and a positive attitude in the challenging environments or packed schedules, that change by the minute while we are working … you know the usual things we’ll likely encounter out there in the wild.
Centrally located in Albany NY hives me great access to so many cities as a business photographer that are an easy drive. I work often in:
An easy drive for me also includes Pittsfield MA, Rochester and Syracuse. Cooperstown is in my back yard. Travel is no problem for me and a lot of the northeast including northern New Jersey and northern Pennsylvania is close by. Need a Lake Placid photographer? Anywhere else in the Adirondack park? It’s all nearby for me.
Have confidence that you’re partnering with a business and communications photography specialist who is experienced at these sorts assignments. You won’t be relying on a team member who thinks they can do what you need because they take pictures and it’s all taking pictures …
