Michelle Pedone is an award winning New York City based portrait photographer. Growing up in a military family and being the new kid in a classroom at least 16 times has given Michelle a unique perspective on the world. Experiencing the subculture evident in each new place nourished her love of pop culture, so evident in her work today. She received her BFA from the Corcoran College of Art and Design, in Washington DC.
Her energetic personality, eye for color and details and clean graphic style lends itself to a variety of subject matters, whether it’s an entertainer, pro wrestler, CEO, teenager or the family pet. She recently began shooting motion; a jump that came naturally and well suited her stylized approach to visual story telling.
Michelle’s work has been featured in numerous publications including Seventeen, Men’s Health and World Wrestling Entertainment Magazine, along with advertising campaigns for Old Navy and The Learning Channel. Her photographs have hung on the walls of United Photo Industries in Brooklyn, NY and Parlor Gallery in Asbury Park, NJ. She lives in New York City with her husband James, affenpinscher Pepito, and kitty Baby Olive.
