Dale May Photography New York photographers

New York-based, award-winning, advertising, entertainment and editorial photographer Dale May has been creating iconic images for over 18 years.

Best known for his richly stylised, character-driven, conceptual work, Dale has captured some of today's most recognisable personalities, including Daniel Day-Lewis, Charlize Theron, Benedict Cumberbatch, Daniel Radcliffe, Elizabeth Banks, Jared Leto, Amy Poehler and Christina Aguilera.

Personally passionate about music and performance, Dale has also shot countless bands and Broadway casts.

Although Dale has remained focused on his commercial career, his roots have always been firmly planted in the fine arts. He moved to NY from Chadds Ford, PA to study painting, colour theory, and art history at Parson's School of Design. The foundation of these first few years shaped his current aesthetic style, and he graduated in 1993 with a BFA in Photography.

Combining his background in painting and colour theory, lighting and post-production, Dale works with the inspiration to make the unthinkable real, as well as believable.
