About Me

I am an exhibiting visual artist who incorporates photography into multi-disciplinary artwork.  What ties my various types of art & photography together is a dedication to collaboration and a curiosity about society and people.

Through my Model Mayhem profile I seek creative and inspired individuals to work with. I pay models for nudes, and do some non-nude TFP. I am available to hire for portfolio work, various types of content, and headshot/publicity/promotional work.

Pete Checchia Photography & Arts Studio is located in Philadelphia in the Northern Liberties neighborhood. It functions as my photo studio, an exhibition space, the occasional Pop-Up Shop, and a space that can be rented as a photo studio or for various other purposes including as a storefront window display.

Travel, location, street photography are important aspects of my artistic expression and are incorporated in much of my art work.

Along with creating art I make a living as a full-time freelance & studio photographer.
I specialize in classical music and the performing arts. I shoot for Carnegie Hall, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Curtis Institute of Music and other high-end arts organizations.
I do studio publicity work for many of the classical music worlds leading artists, rising stars, and established groups and ensembles.

Inquire about my rates for studio work as I have a sliding scale for simple headshots to more elaborate concept shoots. *musicians*  *actors*  *dancers*  *corporate headshots* *portraits*  ...in the words of the immortal Leonard Cohen "I'm Your Man"

Me

I have a budget to pay models for some shoots. I also do TFCD with models trading for images for my art work. I love collaborating on concepts of mutual interest.
