My work as an annual report photographer Albany NY has taken me into a wide variety of locations covering a wide variety of subjects.
To become a top Albany annual report photographer, a person needs a varied and deep background working across many different photographic disciplines. Starting my career as a full time news photojournalist exposed me to the need to be able to work fast. It also taught me how to enter an unfamiliar scene and to see the technical challenges, fast. And to be able to respond to them, fast.

Capturing portraits is such a big part of being an annual report photographer. And sometimes they have to be done on the fly with a minimum of fuss. Just seeing a good setting and knowing how to bring it together quickly into an arresting image is what you want.
One of my favorite things to do is talk with potential clients about their possible projects. It doesn’t have to be a firm concept you are looking to execute. Talking with you about what you are planning to do allows me to offer input and advice.
