"We all have creativity within our souls. It may lay dormant and invisible to our consciousness but there is an awareness of its existence. It may require a lifetime of work to expose it to the light of day but when it eventually surfaces it becomes an unstoppable force that needs to be harnessed and directed. Our task in life is to use this gift not only to satisfy our current need for personal fulfillment but leave behind some small evidence of our own existence."

I prefer to shoot outdoors at interesting locations as studio work gets stale after a while and has no context. It's one thing to photograph a person but mostly I try to photograph a feeling. I've begun a personal project of shooting in cemeteries, I am drawn to the quiet beauty of the architecture, statuary and old mausoleums. They are peaceful places that evoke sadness, melancholy and a need to understand our past. I want to make soft, sensual, images that I hope will be somewhat poetic. I'm looking for models who can express emotion, tragedy, sadness, and heartbreak, with a beautiful face and piercing eyes. I hope each image will reflect the model's own interpretation of the concept and she will make it her own. Shooting several days a month around my commercial work throughout the year. Working this series in NYC, Boston, Philadelphia and Paris. Send me a message if you'd like to participate.

Hey Gene! thank you so much for a wonderful shoot you were fun, professional, and so talented! talk to you soon!
My images regularly appear in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, LA Times and numerous dance and lifestyle related magazines both here and abroad. If you google "Gene Schiavone Photos" hundreds of my published shots will come up. I live in Connecticut but most of my work is in New York City. I frequently travel to the West Coast, through New England, London, Prague, Moscow and St. Petersburg in Russia.
If I sent you a note it's because I saw something interesting in your portfolio and may like to work with you. Those are the only people I'm accepting as friends.
I'm relaxed, easy going and patient, I'll bring out your best look. Happy to do TF from time to time.
