Photo Assistant, Digital Tech

Helen Galioto

People, Portrait, Architecture, Fashion, Beauty, Prod. Assistant, Stillife, Food, Landscape

Know How:

I am a third-year Photography major at Pratt Institute, with a specific concentration in digital photography. I have extensive experience in shooting and lighting techniques, as well with using Adobe editing software for color correction, retouching, and layout for print and web.

My personal body of work covers a wide range of genre - street, portraiture, still-life, architecture, fashion and so on. I'm interested in using my photos to explore their own condition and final context as a flat image. I frequently experiment with nontraditional sizes and resolutions in preparing my images or print, and use the capabilities and aesthetics of the internet to guide their online presentation.

Professionally, I have worked as an

assistant to photographers for studio-based and on-location assignments, including the fast-paced environment of New York Fashion Week (which I have also been regularly photographing in my own personal body of work for the past four seasons). Working as an assistant gave me a familiarity with the technical and timely demands of a professional studio environment that frequently had to be adapted to the street, and has made me especially comfortable with learning a post-production workflow tailored to the aesthetics of my boss. I have also worked in gallery settings, where I was responsible for photographing exhibitions, editing them for online and print publication, and formatting exhibition catalogs and artist books.
