Scott Feierstein - Photographer and owner of Red Sweatshirt Photography
Photography comes from the heart and the gut, it comes from a creative place that one has to find for themselves. You have to get out there and find your style.
That's just what I did four years ago. I got up from my cubicle, grabbed my camera and never looked back. I love my job. Not many people I know can say that. I love every second of it from the most perfect lighting to the darkest, most challenging spaces. From huge, elaborate weddings to small family gatherings. All of it is exciting to me because I get to be inspired every day by watching people live out the most precious moments of their lives.
I grew up on Long Island, where I still currently reside. I work mostly in the Tri-state area, but have traveled all over the country on shoots. I have been recognized as one of The Knot's "Best of 2013, and " and on OneWed as their "Best of" for both 2011 and 2012.
My shooting style reflects my personality - fun and full of life. I capture many of my photos from the sidelines; I stay as unobtrusive as possible while searching for emotion, light, and color. Some of my best shots are those of people who don't even know they are being photographed.
When I am not on a gig it doesn't mean I put my camera down. On my free time I enjoy taking photos of my dogs and my favorite subject of all, my sons Nathan and Parker. I live an inspired life filled with love and excitement and photography completes the package.
