About Me

Welcome to my page and thanks for stopping by.  If you like what you see, leave me a tag or a FR.  Thanks! on Pinterest on Flickr on Instagram on Soundcloud on Tumblr

Now Published.  My latest work was on Real Housewives of NY.

It is my goal to capture emotional energies. I want to create a body of work that builds on the nature of the psyche. Emotions (eMOTIONs) create motion in a picture.  I look to go from extreme emotions to capture a moment in between states.  Emotions take time to travel thru the body, the photo can capture this.  This give a sense of weight, of momentum. We didnt capture the end of the journey, nor the beginning. As the viewers mind empathically connects to the photo, it travels the same path we took in making the photos. A true collaboration

I dont feel my work is typical because my background in Modern Dance. I have a B.A. in Dance and Art from Hunter College From my experience as a choreographer, dancer and lighting designer. I am also deeply into symbols and how they affect us.  As I progress I will allow the symbols into my work. Symbols have their own life.  Sometimes born in fire, burning thru a wall.  Sometimes dying in the form of rusted metal or broken stone.  I don't paint with light, that is for just the eye. I paint with shadow as well,  shadows moves across the body as my hands would. 

Photography is my dialogue with the world and the sharing my point of view with others. Collaborating with a model can bring new life to the art form. It points to truth.


No Escorts. My work is emotional, I feel inhibited creating with an audience. The audience must wait till I am done to experience my work.  Please check my references.  You can contact any of the models that are referenced here.

Compelling photographs come from inspiration, not duplication.  (I copied and pasted this)

Here is what people are saying about me...

"I like your style. There's a 'darkness' (Gothic) feel to least, to my eye. There's no typical posing by your subjects."  Gary Benjamin

"I absolutely love your work. Your eye for an image is impeccable." - Robin Norris

"You have been the biggest inspiration in my career. Without your encouragement I would've not pursued modeling. Your positive attitude and incredible patience is still a mystery to me smile. Every time we work together I learn new things about myself as a model as well as a person. No words can ever express how grateful I am to have met you in my life." - Sharlota  #682954

Oreste was so down to earth and real. His works are always so meticulously symmetrical. I absolutely adore the way our work came out. Every picture is so crisp and perfect. All of his shots, no matter what genre of modeling he is shooting, are of pristine quality. He is tough and I was sore the day after, but the images are WORTH IT. This man knows what he's doing. Princess Vi

"It was really great meeting Oreste. I thought I was crazy, but I just started modeling full time and still wasn't sure if I can really make money as a model. When I met him before a photo shoot he told me a lot about the industry and that really helped. I got to know that there's different ways to make it as a model from his experience with working different models. I found out how I can make money, by not just relying on getting an agent. With his advice I was able to get my first tear sheet."  Mari #463660

"I had a really great time shooting with Oreste and I love the pictures from the shoot! Oreste is a true professional and also such a great, and easy to work with person. He has a great eye for composition and lighting, but he is not overbearing and makes a model feel totally comfortable and really collaborates with her and listens to her opinion. He gives great directions while paying attention to details (e.g., how your fingers look - clenched or relaxed (sometimes these minor things can spoil the shot)). Oreste doesn't rush the shoot and makes sure the quality of everything is where he and the model want it. He also cares to give the feedback/suggestions and shares his knowledge of the industry and photography. Five stars from me!" - Elena  #1990964
