The Person Behind the Camera
My name is Rachel Nagy. I was born and raised in California, and will soon be living in New York. I have always had a love of photography. My mom is a professional photographer (one of the best in my opinion) and an incredibly patient person. From the time I was probably 15 I started following behind her, accompanying her to her jobs, taking pictures on my old Pentax K1000. I can imagine it wasn’t always easy having a shadow like that, but I have learned more helping her than I could ever have in college classes. I learned how to interact with people to make them feel more comfortable, and to love the art of capturing moments of life. Now I am taking on a business of my own, capturing moments in peoples lives across New York. I love taking pictures. It’s that easy. I love capturing who a person is, trying to keep the shoot as comfortable and relaxed as possible so the picture I take is just a captured moment of who someone is.
“For me, the subject of the picture is always more important than the picture”
You as my customer are always the most important part of the photo shoot. It’s not the money, or the time. My goal is to find out who you are and what your story is. I want to take your pictures in a location and style that you will always love. Whether it’s on top of a mountain or in your back yard. If it is your wedding day, I want to just be along to capture moments and take the pictures you envisioned. I am very willing to travel for jobs, whether it’s another state or another country. Just ask as far as extra price.
