Thanks for coming to see my work that I have created as an editorial photographer in Albany NY. I have decades of experience making compelling images from breaking news events as well as creating portraits and more illustrative work for editorial and trade publications.
Need someone who can handle your magazine or publication photography assignment? Someone who can work as a news photographer for you in Albany? Is it a hard news event you need covered? Perhaps you need a great trade magazine photographer in Albany?
You’ve come to the right place!
Over two decades of my career as a full time photographer were spent working as a full time staff news photojournalist. I have the background as a real editorial photographer. And I have never done anything else other than earn my living full time as a photographer for decades now.
So I have the skills to handle coverage of live events regardless of whether they are planned and controlled or are unplanned and fluid.
A firefighter unfurls a giant American flag at an event on Empire State Plaza at the New York State capital honoring the fallen firefighters who were killed in the line of duty or died as the result of line of duty illnesses or injuries.
Prior to the event, firemen and other officials placed large American flags around the Empire State Plaza in recognition of the solemn event. Working as an editorial photographer in Albany means that I am covering events occasionally as a news photojournalist would. These sorts of events that I cover include presentations, speeches, conventions, News conferences, Press conferences, public relations events, meetings, Protests, and many other sorts of Albany events that require a photographer.
Walking the plaza, I noticed two trucks setting up and saw a little corner of a flag sticking out of a very large storage bag. I asked someone where that flag was going and how big it was. With the guidance from him, I was able to pre position myself across a part of the plaza to make this photo of the unfurling of the flag.
This image was a completely spontaneous photograph that was made without any interference or involvement by me personally. I waited for them to begin hanging it from the buckets of two fire trucks outside of the New York state capitol building. Once the process began, the flag needed to be adjusted so that it hung correctly as it was raised in the air. With my ability to approach and talk to strangers, and to think ahead and wonder about what might happen, I found out what I needed to know to make a great photo for the cover of an association’s magazine.
With many years of experience working as a photojournalist in Albany, I am always able to create a wide variety of images from any event. I personally enjoy creating bold and graphic images that help grab your viewers attention. I’ve been working as an event and editorial publication photographer in Albany and the surrounding region for decades at hard news events in Albany, in the state Capitol, at sporting events as well as at events which various organizations and associations want covered.
Assignments have taken me to the following cities that I have lots of experience and familiarity with:
One aspect of my work that is unique since I have photographed often in the state Capitol building in Albany is that I have extensive experience as an advocacy type of event photographer. From school children to senior citizens, economic development to funding of social programs my assignments have had me cover the gamut of outreach, lobbying, advocacy and the formation of legislation in the New York State Capital.
This means I have the experience working on the actual New York State Assembly floor. Have covered the State of the State address by the governor. I’ve worked the stairways of the Legislative Office Building to jump from office to office as an organization meets directly with legislators and their staff to make their positions heard or to offer input that could potentially affect legislation.
My photographs range from photojournalistic coverage of multiple simultaneous meetings with legislators that a specific organization is holding, to more controlled and managed situations where I can produce photos of your people meeting with key state personnel. And I can do that either with zero disruption or with expert staging and arrangement that helps it happen in seconds.
If you need an event photographer in Albany New York to cover something that is happening for a newspaper, a magazine, a trade publication, a public relations event, or your marketing efforts, then please give me a call. My work experience includes coverage of live breaking types of events as well as more planned events where everything is scheduled in advance.
I am experienced as an Albany New York photojournalist and I'm able to turn around photographs from an event very quickly so that you may use them for social media, public relations, or media distribution uses. By adding additional staff, your event can be covered with photography distributed in nearly real-time for you. Images can be posted online to a social media feed or to your webpage soon after they are taken.
With the technical experience and deep people skills, I can help you create successful editorial event coverage.
