“Jim Galante is in the business of operating one of the most successful New York commercial and fashion studios around. Jim's work is well beyond the scope of many photographers in this field and it is no small wonder why he was chosen to be among the select few on Profotos.
One of the best words to use when describing Jim's work is - perfection. While this may sound a bit idealistic, it does describe the detail in Jim's studio photography, which our staff found at every level. Jim's use of lighting and composition within his images is definitely perfect - without a doubt.
With a background in commercial photography, our staff knows what it takes to produce stunning images in the studio. While it is fairly easy to produce average product and fashion studio shots, it is very difficult to produce images which make the viewer say, "wow!" Jim has this ability. His photographs include the meticulous details necessary to succeed in producing effective studio images, which take your breath away.
Check out Jim Galante's portfolio now for a taste of the best photography in the world of advertising and fashion photography - the best in the World!”
