Introduction: Hi, 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 am also a licensed New York State Cosmetologist and work hard to get my clients looking their best on their shoots. I am also the editor-in-chief for the online Digital Merit Magazine, which aims to educate, empower, promote, and entertain models. The magazine's idea is to help people who are interested in getting the modeling business the experience they need to succeed in this lucrative and self-fulfilling industry. My work stands out because I take an integrated approach to the way I do business. I learn all aspects of the tasks at hand to fully understand all of my clients' needs and address those needs to their satisfaction. I use state of the art equipment both in my professional photography studio and in the field. I spent years studying photography and comparing my work to the best in the business. I continually strive to be one of them. I ensure that all photos taken are professionally edited before delivery to clients. Important Note: I am offering free professional hair and makeup services for all boudoir jobs. The beauty aspect of these jobs could not be stressed more. It should be noted that my prices mainly reflect shooting at my studio in Astoria, Queens. If I need to travel for more than 10 miles, I would more charge a little extra.

Nothing but great things to say about Hassan! He was very responsive, made party feel comfortable when taking photos, very complimentary! Not to mention, he was very flexible accommodating late comers to the photo shoot. Moreover, found the best background to capture the moment. Will hire Hassan, for all photo ops!

Wedding and Event Photography

Hassan, was a great pick and person I found for my engagement picture. He was everything I could have asked for. We communicated for the event of my engagement day, and even let me know when he was at location of Jones Beach. I got the pictures back the next day. I would definitely recommend him, to anyone who was looking for a great photographer and the pictures he took were good as well!!! Thank you
