Introduction: My name is Dorothy Shi and I am a photographer located here in Manhattan, NYC I am a professional photographer with 25 years of experience and have been awarded best fashion photographer with BackStage Magazine 4 years in a row. I have extensive experience in catalogs, acting/modeling headshots, corporate headshots, men/women fashion, commercial, children, beauty campaigns, CD Covers and magazine editorials. I will offer the best experience and advice to get you in the shot that you desire for your occasion. Some of my clients include Dove Campaign, Levi's, Laura Ashley, Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, and the Late Whitney Houston. I am a new client on Thumbtack but have been around in the business for several years and knows what it takes to make sure each shot comes out beautifully. To expand my New York base, I am currently offering competitive pricing for the best quality pictures. I love being able to grab an expression out of someone and being able to photograph each moment. Being able to capture a moment and cherish it for eternity is what I love doing.

Dorothy is wonderful. She’s very laid back and really creative. She added in some fun elements to my photos and had great attention to detail when clothes didn’t look right or hair was disheveled. She made me feel relaxed and the shoot went really well and I’d highly recommend her! Her studio is easy to get to and you can hang up your clothes so they’ll look great for the shoot. I was so happy one of her dogs participated in my photo shoot too. Added some real fun to it. On a hot summer day it was great to also have air conditioning. Thank you Dorothy! And to your husband and the assistants. 😉

First of all… thank you so much Dorothy! Dorothy and her son are really kind and they are definitely professionals. In the beginning, my fiancée and I were extremely nervous since this was our first time photos including her family. But in the meantime, we have a conversation with them while walking around Central Park which is greatly appreciated. So, we could gradually be natural and definitely had a memorable time. After checking the photos with my fiancée’s mom&brother, we talked a lot of ourselves and we were getting better acquainted for sure. Again, thank you for the photo shooting Dorothy. We appreciate it very much. Have a happy new year!
