If you are searching for a Saratoga Springs editorial photographer, then you have found the photographer in Saratoga you are looking for.
I have years of working as a full time newspaper photojournalist to my credit. Transitioning out of the news business, I have since spent years taking assignments from newspapers, niche magazines and trade publications.
First, notice that my website is devoid of high school seniors and weddings. I’m a corporate and editorial specialist. And have built a career on being just that. So you won’t be getting a photographer who takes a “me too” attitude to their photography, shooting everything from still life to babies to landscapes.
To be sure, an editorial photographer needs a diverse skill set. There are times where I’m called upon by a trade magazine to document some sort of manufacturing process where my ability to set up lighting and stage workers is impossible. So I’m operating in full-on photojournalist mode. But my skills with finding locations and lighting on location means that I can create controlled portraits or illustrations for you at the same shoot.
With a well tuned set of people and organizational skills, combined with my technical skills, I can bring you a large set of photos from what, on the surface, seems like a limited documentary assignment. I’m very methodical about going through a location and wringing all I can, or all I’ll be allowed to access, out of a location.
My photos as a Saratoga documentary photographer often center on horse racing in Saratoga Springs NY. Horse racing photos from the Saratoga flat track are a speciality of mine.
While so many just photograph the side of the winner crossing the finish line, I work to provide a behind the scenes view of the Saratoga backstretch and to show viewers the lesser known aspects of the track. With my Saratoga horse racing action photos I strive to go beyond the “side of a horse crossing the finish line” plain old record shot that so many photographers capture. The emotion of the track, the scenes and the people, the details and the setting set me apart as a Saratoga editorial photographer.
Often there are projects that are fully developed and come with a tight deadline. That’s “what I do”, based on my years of working as a daily photojournalist on deadline. Other times your project may not be fully formed. You may be looking for input to help flesh-out your visual coverage for a story you are doing. That’s a great time for me to be involved.
I’m always happy to hear from a potential client about a possible project. It’s never too early to contact me as it allows me precious time to begin mulling over how I’d approach a shoot.
So let’s hear about what you are planning!
