I am a professional photographer and the founder of Digital Merit Photography LLC, a professional photography company and studio in Astoria, Queens, New York City. I founded the company to help people capture the moments in their lives that are most important to them and the ones that they love, and make them feel good about themselves and their loved ones. I consider myself an artist who can see and capture the beauty in every situation I photograph. I use my artistic skills to create the best photos possible under any circumstances I shooting my subject.

I continually strive to be one of them. I ensure that all photos taken are professionally edited before delivery to clients.

I needed headshots for my residency application photos and learned there's a difference between a headshot and a 1/4 portrait photo! hassan was able to get the job done and took out the frizziness in my hair evident on the photo.

Hassan has been the absolute most kind hearted, respectful, professional, detailed photographer I have ever worked with and I worked with many. This was different though I set up a birthday shoot for my sister who had an amazing time, she told me I picked a great photographer to capture her vision. Although she did not like some of her images “due the outfits not fitting correctly” so Hassan has set up for a reshoot “free of charge”. Also because this app took money from me they said on behalf of Hassan, he was not aware until I made him aware. He then told me cancel that payment and get my money back, I am currently in dispute with the app to get my money back. Hassan on the other hand was amazing and I plan on using him again for family Mother’s Day shoot, my daughters 19th birthday so many shoots coming and I will only use Hassan from now on. I will only refer Hassan to all my family, friends and business Partners. My sis and I thank you Hassan. Elsa Gordon

Digital Merit Photography LLC's reply
Elsa, Thank you so very much for your kind words. This review of my work is probably the nicest I received in my entire life. It was one of the most excellent shoots I have ever had. I am glad that you and your sister loved the photos. I look forward to seeing both of you again soon for a follow-up shoot.

I was seeking a photographer for images to be on LinkedIn and networking. Hassan responded very quickly to my inquiry. The proposed cost was fair and reasonable. He was very accommodating for a good time for the photo session at his studio. Hassan was ready when I arrived at the studio (I however was 10 min late!). He offered a spacious changing area complete with lighted mirror (like you see on tv and in movies) and a separate full length mirror. Hassan explained his method, taking light readings, test photos, relocating lighting. He offered photos with a dark background as well as light. He put me at ease. He was patient with me, making slight changes for the photos. Afterwards we went through the photos. Hassan touched up the selected photos and sent the images attached to an email and the link to download the photos. I am very happy with the final images. I highly recommend Hassan and Digital Merit Photography.

We loved working with Hassan. He is such a genuine person and a true professional. He took photos of our child’s baptism and we could not be happier with the result! Every shot turned out great, which is especially impressive with all the family we had there and the many people involved. He really understood the importance to us of the religious aspect as well. Can’t recommend Hassan enough!
