Artist Statement

Arnie Adler has been capturing images with a sense of honesty and creativity for more than thirty years. He has a successful photography business with a rich variety of corporate, non-profit, editorial and private clients. That success is built on a dynamic, natural and spontaneous approach to photography. Arnie’s approach reflects his belief that the most captivating images in life are captured only when a subject is free, relaxed, and living in the moment…whether that moment is posed or spontaneous. In 1984, Arnie Adler was named the first staff photographer for the New York office of Crain Communications. He was part of the team that took Advertising Age from its identity as a staid media publication into a vibrant business magazine.
