Photographer NJ & NYC
It’s a multi-layered career in photography. Therefore my website is multi-layered too. The menu at the top, and the info below, will be a good run-down of the work that I do, and the services I offer as a photographer.
Please contact me about any event or project for which you need a photographer. I’m confident I can help.

Headshots & Business portraits : A professional headshot is an essential element in your branding. A good executive headshot; a business portrait; a new Linked-In profile shot; or a portrait for your profile as an actor; or even a photo for a dating website – all excellent reasons to have a professional headshot taken.
For professional looking headshots for social media or your website or business card. Let’s create a photograph that helps to boost your image! We can work in the studio or create studio-like settings at your office. We can also do environmental headshots, showing context of where you work, whether inside in your office, or outside in the city.
Whether you need a white background, or a typical grey background that is often used for corporate headshots, I can accommodate your needs and help you present yourself in the best light for your business. We can take photographs out on location for an environmental portrait, or we can shoot in the studio. My studio is in Fairfield, Passaic county in NJ, but I also work in New York. Check my headshot photography portfolio for more examples and rates. Please feel free to contact me to make an appointment for your photo session.
Portrait Photography & Editorial photography in a style has a strong Fashion influence – flexible in terms of idea and concepts. We can do stylish portraits in the studio, or portrait outdoors where we use the environment. Please contact me, and we can discuss your ideas and what you need from the photo session.
Corporate event & conference photography, using state-of-the-art cameras and lenses. I photograph events and presentations in a non-intrusive way without flash (when necessary) and with silent cameras. I’m available to photograph any special events, or meetings, conferences, celebrations and press events you may organize. Conference photographer & event photography. Promotional event photography. Year-end parties and functions. Team-building exercises. Any of these. Please contact me to discuss the event that you are planning.
With time-lapse photography we can condense a longer story, into a more compact video sequence. We can make an event that takes hours or days, and create a dynamic video clip that shows everything that is happening, in just a minute or two. Commercial work, such as building construction or demolitions are now visually more arresting as a shorter video clip.
Time-Lapse photography can be static or can cinematic movement with the camera on a motorized slider. Check out the video clips on my Time-Lapse portfolio to see examples of my work.
Have your products and catalog items that you are selling, shot professionally in the studio or on location. See my product photography portfolio for examples of my work.
The Tangents blog is an extensive part of my website, for photographers. It is loaded with tutorials on photography, whether lighting or flash photography or posing or camera settings or camera gear reviews. I answer questions on all the topics we cover.

Photography Workshops : I present workshops on flash photography and studio lighting. These workshops and tutoring sessions are offered as group classes, but also as personal workshops. There are also Photo Walks in NYC where we photograph a model against the backdrop of New York. With the workshops we aim to make flash photography easier and much more intuitive than might appear. If you’re at a distance, there are also video tutorials, and I also offer tutoring via Skype.
Photography books by NvN : I’ve written several books on photography, mainly dealing with flash photography and portrait photography. Some of the books have been translated into Polish, Portuguese, German and Chinese.
