About Me

Reese Nanavati

Who I Am

A New York-based (but often traveling) event and publicity photographer, specializing in on-location candids and natural, in-the-moment portraits and promotional shoots.


What I Do

My background is in marketing for entertainment (starting out as a production assistant on several studio features and working on trailers in the Miramax creative advertising department), with a focus on performance, promotional and behind-the-scenes photography. I also handle conceptual portraits, industry events and various private and corporate shoots. My goal is to provide lively, character-driven visuals that tell a story and capture the moment in a memorable, colorful style.

Since most of my jobs require me to be extremely unobtrusive, I've learned to work quietly in the background without distracting those around me, while still being friendly and approachable enough to ensure that even the most focused or camera-shy people are comfortable my presence.


What I Love

I immensely enjoy every aspect of photography and the way that it allows me to look at the world. Every time I pick up my camera is a chance to try something new. And let's be honest, how many other jobs actually require a person to rock out at a concert, smash a cake and dress for the zombie apocalypse all in the same month?
