Kareem Black is a New York-based photographer who went straight into shooting for Fader, GQ, Elle Girl, Sony Music Entertainment and Atlantic Records after graduating from the School of Visual Arts. He was featured as one of Photo District News’ “30 Emerging Photographers” and soon became the go-to lens-man for Reebok, Complex, and Steve Madden.
Along with his commercial work, Black keeps busy with a variety of personal projects including “Feels Good Let’s Go,” a website that depicts the more interesting participants in New York City nightlife. He has traveled to Haiti twice (once with Art in Motion and once with Healing Haiti) and mounted shows of his images taken there, with all money going to charity. Kareem has also been a part of charity missions in Bosnia and Sri Lanka.
Black has lectured at SVA, NYU, Pratt, the Fashion Institute of Technology, the Rochester Institute of Technology, Professional Photographers of America and the PhotoPlus Expo.
