Elena Seibert is a New York based photographer who shoots photo portraits of writers.
After many years of shooting celebrities, she is now one of the leading photographers of authors.
"I get a lot of pleasure working with authors", she says, "because I love to read. I try to come to a shoot familiar with the author's work, and find that the time I'm with a writer usually speeds by comfortably."
Elena's style avoids gimmicks in lighting and locale she strives to find moments when her subjects are most at ease, looking their best and being themselves.
That attitude also infuses her photographs of celebrities and other public personalities. She has shot the top stars of movies, TV and music, as well as corporate leaders, sports stars and ex-presidents. Her work appears regularly in every major domestic magazine and newspaper, as well as in periodicals and books throughout the world.
