Nick Russo, 29, freelance photographer located in Morristown NJ.
I work as a photographer, photo assistant, digital capture technician and retoucher primarily for on figure fashion shoots and commercial still life. I also work in sports photography, events and portraiture and set building.
As a Multimedia Journalism major I began shooting and writing about hockey at Rowan University around the same time as I took photojournalism in 2012, and
Thus began a run of writing and shooting sports. After college, as a writer covering the Randolph NJ sports beat, I found myself becoming increasingly interested in the galleries I supplied my articles as much as the writing itself. And while I miss interviewing student athletes and wild haired coaches at midfield after a crucial loss, I made a move to photography full time when I got my foot in the door at a photo studio. The journey has brought me all over the east coast.
Since then I’ve dedicated much of my time to working in studios. I’ve been lucky to work with some fantastic fashion photographers, still life photographers and portrait pros, a few of whom I am glad to call mentors. Studio work is very challenging and the pressure has benefited me greatly. My goal as freelancer in studio is to constantly expand my responsibilities and understanding in regards to the studios deeper functions. And of course deepen my general knowledge of photography and especially the gear and workflows that makes it possible. I’ve always enjoyed bouncing around doing different jobs in the photo world, but in 2018 my focus is more on hardgood still life photography and retouching.
When things are good I’m working in different studios doing different jobs M-F, shooting sports on Saturday and wildlife in between.
