Alan Shapiro

Passionate, award-winning photographer. Advertising Chief Creative Officer, too.

I grew up on the creative side of the advertising world and had the pleasure of working with hundreds of clients around the world; telling their unique stories in very unique ways. Along the way, I've had the pleasure of working with an incredible number of talented photographers, directors, cinematographers and imagemakers. I became envious of their art and craft. At first, I saw it as a means of reducing my stress-filled life. As a Chief Creative Officer at the world's largest Advertising Agency Network, I needed a distraction. So I bought a camera. And then another. And another. My new hobby and daily "creative exercise regimen" quickly turned into a joy-filled and all consuming passion.I love talking to all sorts of people and seem to have a knack for getting them to open up and share themselves despite the intrusion and intimidation that a serious-looking camera often represents.I like seeking out and sharing things I find interesting. Beautiful things. Powerful things. Poignant...

Note: just make sure it doesn't carry you off, drop you onto a pointy tree branch on some rocky crag and eat your innards out.

Wanted to thank everyone for making today as special as you did. It meant a lot to me.

About 1 day ago Last call with an Oriental Pied Hornbill

It's well past closing time at Big Al's Hideaway as the Hornbill on stage played a soulful rendition of Louis Armstrong's "It's a wonderful world" (What a wonderful world - LOUIS ARMSTRONG.)
