A native New Yorker, Peter Baiamonte has worked in the photo industry since the mid 90s, accumulating many years of crew work before moving into his own projects. He has recently begun to revisit the world of his beginnings with some work using film—exploring again the use of film cameras in his portraiture, and experimenting with multiple exposures on film.

His strengths include clean storytelling, rigorous composition, vibrant colors, creative problem solving, and an ability to connect with his subjects—setting them at ease and making their time in front of the camera comfortable. He also excels at assembling an excellent crew, working collaboratively with clients, and creating a friendly, happy vibe on set.

Peter’s work covers many styles and disciplines, including portraiture, lifestyle, landscape, travel, and sports. He splits his time between New York City and the Massachusetts Berkshires, working regularly with clients in New York and Boston as well as the entirety of New England. He is available to travel worldwide.

The photo subjects in this Spotlight includes portraits of Karen Allen and Jeff DeMunn; work for clients such as the design firm Sarankco, the University of the Pacific, and Berkshire Magazine; new work with painter Cynthia Wick; and some personal images from the world of motorsports—shadowing the team at Kolby Schroder racing.
