About NY Portraits

What makes NY Portraits the photographer of choice for so many families and companies? You’ll find the answers below in a simple Question and Answer format

What sort of guarantee do you offer?
Believe it or not, the most frequent “complaint” we hear from clients is that we have taken too many great pictures and it’s hard to decide which are their favorites!
But we recognize that choosing a photographer is not an everyday decision, and you may be nervous about making the right choice. Don’t be! We GUARANTEE great pictures. If you’re not happy with the images from your studio portrait session you can choose a refund or reschedule another complimentary session, no questions asked!
How would you describe your photography?
Our photography reflects a balance of technical excellence combined with relaxed, natural expressions and poses. Unless a client requests a specific “look” our portraiture aims to focus the viewer’s attention on the individual or relationship, not on distracting externals like the background.
Before your session we listen carefully to your thoughts and concerns. This interaction helps us bring together the design and technical elements to achieve exactly what you are looking for. Sessions are always private, unhurried, calm and relaxed.
Where are you located?
Most of our clients choose to have their photography done in the convenience of their own home, office, or at a favorite location in the New York Metro Area. You are also welcome to come to our home studio located in the Upper East Side, or we can arrange studio space in Midtown Manhattan. We photograph clients by appointment only and will provide our exact address and directions when you reserve your portrait session.
What is the photo studio like?
If you decide to come to our Upper East Side location, you will feel “at home” in our photo studio. That’s because we are located an upscale residential building. It’s a cozy, clean, space with beautiful hardwood floors, a nice kitchen so I can offer guests refreshments, and a sparkling clean powder room for you to change and check your hair and makeup. You’ll feel safe and comfortable here and experience highly personalized attention to your individual needs. The natural result is great photographs that make you look your best. Our Midtown studios are located in a commercial building, but share many of the same characteristics of our Upper East Side location.
What are your qualifications as a photographer?
George Delgado, our Principal Photographer, is a Certified Professional Photographer. The CPP designation is awarded to less than 5% of the Professional Photographers of America based on demonstrated knowledge of photographic art and science, skill in creating outstanding photographs, and experience. You can schedule your session with NY Portraits with the confidence that you will be photographed by one of the most qualified photographers in the country.
Where have your photographs been published?
Our fashion photography has appeared nationwide, in leading publications like Women’s Wear Daily and California Apparel News. In addition, many of our corporate clients use our product photographs and executive headshots to “put their best face forward” in sales brochures, advertising and marketing pieces, trade show exhibits, and business websites.
Where else are your photographs exhibited?
Our Fine Art Photography is highly valued by private owners and hangs in collections from coast-to-coast as well as in Europe, Asia, Australia, South America, and Africa.
What do you do to stay current with changing technology and styles of photography?
Photography is a complex mix of art and technology, and the best photographers recognize the need for constant renewal to keep pace with new equipment, techniques, and styles. That’s why I’m an active member of the leading professional photographer associations. I participate in national or international photography trade shows, seminars, workshops, or mentoring sessions throughout the year. I’ve trained formally at the International Center of Photography with some of the world’s most eminent photographers.
Is retouching available?
Yes, we have the most advanced image enhancement software and highly skilled artists to make your photographs “picture perfect”. Our Glamour Retouching can even make you look 20 years younger or 20 pounds lighter.
What do you do to “give back” to the local community and world?
My talent for photography is a wonderful gift and I welcome the opportunity to use it to promote good causes and benefit those who may be less fortunate. This has led me to be a photographer for organizations like Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep, the Heart Gallery of New York, and The Children’s Wish Foundation, among others. I also donate sessions to many worthy causes. If your organization or school does fund raisers, please contact me about donating a session.
