Hello and thanks for coming by to see the work that I have created as an Albany NY photographer.
You may have been searching the web, or other resources for photographers in this region, and may have come across a ton of listings … which didn’t fit your needs.
Let me tell you a little bit about myself.
I’m flattered to be considered the top Albany NY photographer for business and publication photography.
My work is focused on creating images for businesses, publications, institutions, agencies and advertising clients. I’m sure in your search for a photographer in this area that you came across lots of listings for wedding and social photographers in Albany. But those, maybe part time, social and consumer photographers aren’t the type of creative that -you- are looking for.
The foundation of my experience was set when I was a photojournalism student at the SI Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. From there, my work centered on working as a full time news photojournalist. Covering tens of thousands of assignments (seriously) over a couple of decades exposed me to a variety of learning experiences and challenges. It also allowed me to lear how to relate to people, to listen to them and really understand them and the needs that they have.
Working for a newspaper put me in all sorts of industrial and manufacturing situations. Breaking news events. Covering pre planned meetings. Being responsible for creating business portraits. Contributing ideas to the hungry family that was a newspaper where you ideas and work were turned into content and used every day and you had to come up with a fresh set all over again to fill up the next day’s paper.
This work experience gave me a versatility and a skill set that I couldn’t have gotten anywhere else. And this skill set can be put to use for you on a variety of assignments you may have which require a New York state photographer.
Take this business portrait image for example.
This portrait is of a brewmaster in the F. X. Matt brewery, which today is the Saranac brewery, in Utica New York. It was created for an advertising campaign. Working as an advertising photographer in Albany New York as well as upstate New York and the Utica New York area, I have been commissioned to photograph many different types of subjects. These subjects are needed for a variety of photography types from executive portrait photography, to environmental portraiture, to businesses in operation, to industrial photography.
This is a very common sort of assignment for me. There is an endless need for business portraits of different people from the factory floor to the executive suite. And I’ve handled those types of assignments for companies and publications.
Where I specialize as a professional photographer in upstate New York is in environmental portraiture. An environmental portrait is one in which the subject is photographed in their usual surroundings. This could be an executive in an office setting, someone working outdoors, or a front line worker in a manufacturing setting. The goal of an environmental portrait is to show what the person does, Or on a deeper level to give you some insight into who they are.
I particularly enjoy this type of photography as it gives me the opportunity to learn something about many different types of people in the hundreds And hundreds of different sorts of jobs people perform every day. I look forward to assignments where I may perform environmental portraiture in a manufacturing setting or one that involves outdoor photography.
I am based in Albany New York and travel often for assignments elsewhere in the state as well as to neighboring states.
My work takes me to so many different places meeting a variety of people covering widely variable things. It’s always exciting to hear from a new or existing client about a new project that they have. That phone call or email means that I get to go off on a new adventure and I’m always excited by it. After all these years of shooting for corporate and editorial clients, I still love what I do.
It would be great to hear about the next project you are planning.
Location: Saranac Brewery, utica, ny.
