Hello! I'm Suzanne....
"Your photo should represent the best version of yourself. "
A few years ago, I founded the popular "Opera Diva Dress Collection" which now stands at over 9.3K members comprised of female opera singers that buy, rent and sell performance apparel to one another and provide pertinent career advice as it relates to the female performer. In late 2014, I purchased my first professional camera to take quality photos of my inventory. Thanks to my good friend, "The Voice of Job", I began shooting photos of opera singers while continuing to sing internationally and launch my next business venture, Shoperatic (coming summer 2017).
Many of my photography clients appear on leading stages of the world including The Metropolitan Opera, San Francisco Opera, Paris Opera, Deutsche Oper Berlin and everywhere in between. In addition to shooting classical musicians, I've worked with models, actors, medical professionals, entrepreneurs, authors, animals and NYC daters (yes... you read that right)!
Nobody else besides me is surprised that I got into photography. I worked for several photographers nearly a decade ago as a studio assistant/stylist, modeled as an awkward pre-teen and continue to collaborate with other industry professionals in addition to owning so many clothes that I had to rent a storage unit! I really consider myself a stylist with a camera as my interest really lies in fashion (particularly 90s contemporary and couture)!
