"THE ARTISTRY OF GRIEF"  is a personal project for publication. I am drawn to cemeteries with their quiet beauty, 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, sensitive, respectful images that I hope will  be emotionally revealing and poetic. Searching for models who can express  tragedy, sadness, and heartbreak. I hope each image will reflect the model's own interpretation of the concept. Shooting several days a month around my commercial jobs throughout the country.  If you'd like to participate, send me a message.

"Gene is a top notch professional photographer and a complete gentleman. His talent was so amazing from viewing his port and seeing his verified credits that I relaxed my rule of vetting photographers. I did not regret that decision as the shoot was a fantastic experience. Gene encourages creativity on a shoot, so it turns out to be a wonderful collaboration. He is very encouraging and has an amazing artistic eye that renders beauty in every shot. I was blown away - not only by the quality of the stunning images he captured, but the fact that he returned images to me WITHIN HOURS of the shoot! That NEVER happens! Gene is one of the good guys on MM … a true professional with pristine talent. I would not hesitate to shoot with him again in the future."

My commercial work is all ballet related. I shoot print, portrait and editorial. Well known internationally, most of my work has been in performance arts and conceptual portraits. I am the staff photographer for American Ballet Theatre as well as do independent work for such diverse companies as the Radio City Rockettes, Bolshoi Ballet and Mariinsky Theatre among others. I am available for commercial work and stage performances. Typically booked well in advanced but have open days between jobs.

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. Will be in Naples, FL from October through May.

I'm relaxed, easy going and patient, I'll bring out your best look.
Most of the models I've worked with have left tags which are my references.

Photographers Statement:
"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 only friend models I've worked with.
