Clarita Alave has always had an interest in photography, ever since she was a child. It wasn't until 2016 though that she truly started to hone her skills as a photographer. She attended the International Center of Photography School (ICP). It was here that she learned how to work with a DSLR camera and began experimenting almost exclusively in manual mode. In addition, she became proficient in post-processing images using programs such as Adobe Lightroom and Adobe photoshop. Furthermore, she has been gaining experience working with off-camera flash. 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

I got started with photography when I moved to Portugal and started traveling around the country. I wanted to be able to create memories and art at the same time.

What do you love about your job?

I love proving that everyone can look good in the photos. I love seeing my clients happy when I show them the results of our photo shoot, and I love how people can discover new places with my travel photos.

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

My favourite place to shoot in New York City is Central Park. It has so many different places, it feels like it has a spot for every occasion - engagement, wedding, fashion or just a portrait to keep some memories of NYC. The contrast between skyscrapers and nature makes it an amazing place to shoot. Some of my other favourite locations are Riverside Park, East River State Park, South Street Port and Botanical Garden.
