I’m an Albany NY commercial photographer serving the upstate NY region.
My work as a commercial photographer is focused on creating visual communications for businesses, institutions and industries. You’ve found the top commercial photographer in Albany; one who is a business specialist and can show a website and blog with deep experience serving the business community without having to detour through babies, weddings and high school seniors that are irrelevant to your corporate communications needs.
With career-beginning experience as a photojournalist for news organizations, then transitioning into photography for business, publications and public relations, I’ve developed a skill set that includes problem solving and relating to diverse types of people while moving quickly.
Working often as an Albany annual report photographer and corporate photographer, I am commissioned to photograph farmers and executives. Never in a studio, iWork in board rooms and barns. My years of experience starting out as a news photographer and upstate photojournalist have made me a versatile photographer with a wide range of photographer skills.
This photo of a dairy farmer evokes a sliver of the late day sunlight light sweeping across the landscape and falling on our subject. Bringing a feeling of the time of day into my photos is important. It can create a connection with the viewer who remembers seeing light like that. Lighting like this can create an emotional feeling.
This was my vision for this image. To create a feeling of the late day or early morning when the sun is low. The viewer would get a sense of the day in all its promise beginning. Or maybe the hard-won day coming to a close.
The reality is that this image was created on a hot summer afternoon in the middle of the day when the sun was mercilessly high in the sky. The farmer, though graciously available to us, still had a business to run and responsibilities to take care of. So he couldn’t stand around, feeling self conscious, in front of others who were hard at work.
This is where my skill sets in creating lighting, finding compositions and keeping a subject engaged and comfortable come in. Anybody can operate a camera. Being able to say “I want”, which is the beginning of the creative process, then executing that quickly is the hallmark of a good photographer bringing a great image to life. The real skill is in being able to do that again and again during a shoot, never sitting back and resting on the image already captured.
Decades of experience and my well developed technical skills, plus my journalist-inspired ability to relate to people, provides you with the confidence that great images will result from your creative brief.
You’ll have confidence that you have a great team member in me, helping you meet your communications goals. I’m someone who understands business, relating to business people, and creating images that work for you. This isn’t about baby photography or kids school photos. This type of photography requires a business specialist such as me.
