I am thrilled to be moving into my own photo studio this month! Final touches are being put on the construction this week. I already have multiple shoots booked in the studio this month and I can’t wait to move in and get to work!
Last month, I photographed an ad campaign with Julian Edelman for Perfect Hydration. We had a blast on set at Red Sky Studios, and you can check out all the fun we had in this hilarious behind the scenes video on Julian’s YouTube channel!
More photos coming soon! In the meantime, here are some photos from the shoot for JE11, Julian’s clothing line:
I’m just a few weeks away from finally moving into my own photo studio! As a Boston commercial photographer, I’m thrilled to finally have my own space to photograph personal branding photography, product photography, and commercial photography, in addition to my editorial work for magazines and universities.
I have been blessed to photograph so many world-changing, iconic people in my career, and I wanted to put together a behind-the-scenes book from my photo shoots over the last 14 years in New York and Boston! I sorted through my photo archives and collected photos from my photo shoots with Kim Kardashian, Alicia Keys, Usher, Ludacris, One Direction, New Kids on the Block, Hanson, and more.
Photo book specs: I designed this book with Adobe InDesign, and printed the book at AdoramaPix. All of their books use lay-flat pages, which are my favorite! And I chose the glossy prints. As a former magazine designer, I am always looking for layout design inspiration, and after seeing a few photography portfolios online that were designed for a vertical layout, I decided to give it a try! I love photo book design, and am always searching for new and beautiful ways to display photos.
I absolutely loved going through my archives and reminding myself of all of the incredible adventures I’ve had over the last 14 years as a music photographer, an editorial photography and an advertising photographer! The photo above was from my third photo shoot with Hanson, who are always such a fun group to photograph!
I spent most of my career in New York City, and moved to Boston in 2015—as a Boston photographer, it’s not often that I get to photograph the artists and musicians that I used to photograph on a weekly basis in New York. So it was such a pleasure to photograph Hanson again in 2017, on their Boston stop of their tour!
This is one of my favorite behind-the-scenes photos ever! I was about 4 or 5 months pregnant with my son, photographing a “Day in the Life” with Ed Sheeran for Rolling Stone. We took this photo in the mirror of the green room at NBC in New York!
The photos above have such special meaning to me. As the producer of Photo Shoot for a Cure, I have worked to raise over $100,000 for Parkinson’s research, benefiting The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research and Team Fox. As part of our 2018 event, I had the honor of meeting Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker. We were so grateful for his support!
These photos also hold a special place in my heart! In 2018, I had the honor of photographing Red Sox manager Alex Cora and Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley for the “2018 Bostonians of the Year” issue for The Boston Globe Magazine! I set up my photo studio on location at Fenway Park, and we had an amazing day.
Thanks for taking a look through my new behind the scenes photography book! I can’t wait to move into my new studio, and leave this book on my coffee table to reminisce through all of my adventures!
I am thrilled to share some exciting news! This week, I signed the lease on my very own photo studio!!
For years, I've dreamed of having my own space—where I can photograph projects for my magazine and commercial clients, work on personal projects, and a space where I can also take on smaller, independent shoots for businesses, and professionals.. A warm, welcoming, bright, fun, clean studio where I help people feel happy, confident, beautiful, and powerful—and bring visions to life for my favorite art directors and creative directors.
The space is under construction at the moment, but if you'd like to follow along on the journey of building my studio, follow along on Instagram (instagram.com/dianalevine) and on Facebook at facebook.com/dianalevinephotographer and I'll keep my blog at dianalevine.com updated with progress photos as well!
