The art of photography involves so much more than point-and-shoot. It requires a trained eye, sensitivity, and technical expertise gained through years of studying the world from behind a lens.
Whatever your needs, award-winning photographer Alan Zale has the qualities and background you are looking for.
Alan has met the high standards of The New York Times for two-and-a-half decades, publishing thousands of images in that renowned newspaper as both a freelance and temporary staff photographer.
His assignments range from personal profiles to real estate to professional sports to presidential visits. The Times calls Alan because they know that whatever the demands of a particular assignment, he will deliver.
The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) sought out Alan when it needed someone to create a modern day image. Click here to see the DEA project.
The Associated Press, The New York Daily News, The New York Post, and The Journal News also have turned to one of the most prominent freelance photographers in arguably the most demanding market in the nation. When The Providence (R.I.) Journal has a need in New York, Alan gets the call.
While Alan is regularly involved in major news stories that have national and even international implications, he thoroughly enjoys working at the local level with families and community groups. The Riverdale Press recognized that touch when it hired him to become the first staff photographer in the paper’s 30-year history and build a photo department from scratch.
Official photographer for the Hartsdale (NY) Fire Department
