Masha is a fantastic photographer and took one of my favorite photos of myself in front of the famous Hollywood sign! She is professional, friendly, creative, and CARES about your photos just as much as you do! I can tell she loves her craft and working with models as her work shows!

Incredible photoshoot! I was in need for editorial commercial photographer to bring to life couple of my ideas, and also get model digitals shots. Masha walked me though the whole process, she was very patient and creative with her ideas to produce the exact result I was looking for.

NYC Photographer: Capturing the Heart and Soul of New York City

New York City is a photographer’s paradise, offering an endless array of stunning backdrops and vibrant scenes. As someone deeply familiar with the city’s unique charm, I take pride in capturing its essence in every photo. Whether it’s the iconic skyline, bustling streets, or hidden gems, my goal is to create images that truly reflect the spirit of this fantastic city.

From the historic architecture of the Upper West Side to the modern vibes of Brooklyn, I know how to use the city’s diverse settings to enhance your photoshoot. Each neighborhood has its own character, and I love exploring them to find the perfect locations that match your vision. Whether you’re looking for the classic beauty of Central Park, the energy of Times Square, or the artistic flair of SoHo, I’ve got you covered.

Personalized Photography: Tailored to Your Unique Story

Every NYC photoshoot is an opportunity to tell a unique story. I take the time to understand what makes your story special and use NYC’s diverse environments to bring that story to life. Whether it’s a romantic couples session at sunset on the Brooklyn Promenade or a high-energy fashion shoot in the heart of the city, I aim to create images as dynamic and diverse as New York itself.

Personalized Planning: We’ll discuss your vision and choose locations that best suit your style and needs.

Creative Direction: I provide guidance and ideas to ensure each shot captures the essence of both you and the city.
