About Alan - alanshapiro

Passionate, award-winning photographer. Advertising Chief Creative Officer, too



I grew up on the creative side of the advertising world, working with clients around the world; telling their unique stories in very unique ways.


Along the way, I've had the pleasure of working with many, many talented photographers, directors and imagemakers. I became envious of their art and craft. At first, I saw it as a means of reducing my stress-filled life. As a Chief Creative Officer at the world's largest Advertising Agency Network, I needed a distraction. So I bought a camera. And then another. And another. My new hobby and daily "creative exercise regimen" quickly turned into a joy-filled and all consuming passion.


I love talking to all sorts of people and seem to have a knack for getting them to open up and share themselves despite the intrusion and intimidation that a serious-looking camera often represents.


I like finding and sharing things I find.
Beautiful things. Powerful things. Poignant things.


I am incredibly patient and am often rewarded with moments of magic.


I also enjoy taking something ordinary and making it something well beyond that. Illustration and painting are other passions and I love creating unique photocompositions. (To paraphrase Ansel Adams: "…making pictures, not just taking them.")


One thing led to another and now I'm published, winning awards and having my work shown in galleries.


Happiness.

So here I am.
Open for business.

And open for any adventure that needs an image or two. Or twenty.
