camera Canon EOS 5D Mark III

Fell in love with photography when I was just a little kid; to me it was - and still is -magic. Started getting more serious about the craft in 1989 at Hofstra University and was blessed with some very knowledgeable professors. Got the photojournalism bug, had romantic dreams of flying off to distant lands, photographing conflict, famine and generally anything involving personal risk. Thank goodness THAT never happened. Landed a job with Newsday right out of college in 1994. Honed my skills working for five years with an incredibly talented staff of veteran photographers. Left in 1999 for graduate school at the prestigious Ohio University School of Visual Communications. Returned to New York and was hired as a photo editor for The Associated Press in 2001. Earned my Master of Arts in Visual Communications in 2003. Hired for a dream job in 2005 as corporate photographer for the NASDAQ Stock Market, spending the next four years meeting and photographing executives of the most influential corporations in America, as well as numerous celebrities. Running my own photography business since 2009.

My name is Calvin and I've been shooting as a photographer since 2008. I started out working in various nightclubs, bars and lounges in New York City. It is at these venues and these conditions where I developed the technical skills and perspective on how to capture the moment at its finest. It was challenging and thrilling to operate in an environment that can be described as somewhat chaotic. As for my former manager said at the time, "if you and your camera can survive getting hit by a Grey Goose bottle, you can survive anything".

Clarita started out shooting landscapes but eventually found that she preferred shooting portraits. She is currently focusing on high fashion, weddings and events, and family portraits. She has attended a number of workshops throughout NYC, Boston, and San Francisco. These workshops focused on a wide array of topics, such as, how to style a wedding, how to manage a photography business, the legal side of a photography business, how to take headshots, handling difficult clients/how to direct models, and how to properly use a flash for both men and women. Clarita is taking her lifelong love of photography and implementing it in ways that are positive for both her and her clients.

How did you get started with photography

In 2011, I got started with photography using an entry level DSLR, it was my sister’s gift. I was shooting just for my hobby. I would go out with my camera every day and photograph cool things that I came across in the street, like plants, objects, and my photographer friends. I could develop my skills as soon as I moved to NY in 2014, when I used to work as "Executive Assistant" in a Staten Island office. My husband is a professional photographer and film maker, so he taught me how to shoot and retouch pictures with Lightroom. In 2016, I finally left my office work to dedicate myself fulltime to photography.

What do you love about your job?

I love touching souls with my art. Taking pictures is a true passion for me and always will be.

What are some of your favorite places in New York City to take photographs?

My favorite places to shoot portraits in New York are Dumbo in Brooklyn (between the bridges), Central Park, Grand Central and SoHo.
