Back In 1985, my Grandmother gave me a Kodak EKTRA 200 - 110 film camera for my 12th birthday (which I still have today). I didn’t know it at the time, but that moment partially set the course for who I've become, and what I now do for a living. I’ve snapped many images since that day, ranging from Global Commercial Ad Campaigns to random Birthday Moments.
Today I am a Commercial Photographer, Sr. Retoucher & Photo Editor, a culmination of talent and skills acquired over the past 30 years or so, roughly starting the day my Grandmother handed me that camera. I take great 'pride of ownership' of detail in my work. My passion is delivering an exceptional quality product and revealing people's enthusiasm, charm, & strengths in images. I focus on shooting Events, Celebrations & Commercial Product and High-End Retouching of a full range of image types, including but not limited to: Portraits / Beauty / Compositing / Product / Fashion / Apparel / Architecture / Jewelry / Color.
I’m based out of NYC, but travel for projects around the globe. If you have any questions / comments, feel free to send a message or connect via the social media icons below. Thanks, Alexander
