I’m Neriah McBain. A Brooklyn born, camera-slinging, digital-rendering, visual artist with a knack for minimal beauty. I love to create in all visual mediums. Photography just so happens to be my outlet of choice.
I picked up a camera in 2008 as a way to recreate the world through my eyes. I fell in love with the process of connecting with people and decided to invest in a DSLR and apply myself fully to a craft that proved to be more of an art than a science. Since then, I've worked with numerous clients ranging from families and corporate to actors, brands, and influencers.
I am a portrait photographer who loves to capture the spirit of people through engaging my subjects and bringing out the best in each and every person I photograph.
I’m available for jobs throughout the tri-state area and am willing to travel nationally.
Neriah was fantastic! He made me feel comfortable in front of the camera as the session went along. He gave helpful coaching tips on posing and how to relax to get the best shot and is truly passionate about his work! 10/10 would recommend!
My experience taking individual actor headshots and family portraits with Neriah was absolutely wonderful! Every moment, from standing in front of his lens to seeing the final product, felt like magic. I do not say this lightly because as an artist I consider photoshoots a necessary evil, it causes anxiety, but he lifted the burden of self-criticism by guiding me through breathing and yoga exercises to help me become centered; his guidance ensured every shot came to life and told a story. Neriah's sharp eye finds the light of a moment and captures moods. Every image I received felt like "a poem without words." Unlike most photographers, he didn't just say, "I'll help you feel comfortable", his energy made the experience peaceful and calming. He's an artist who has the competence and intuition to make photos feel and look effortless! If you're a model, actor, or desire breathtaking family and/or self portraits: I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM! He goes above and beyond to capture professional, high quality, timeless shots.
Neriah is very professional, down to earth and creative. He creates a very comfortable environment, so if you’re a shy person no worries, he’ll have you smiling in no time. He’ll also help in aiding you in posing, hand and head positioning, & things of that nature. As far as his photos goes he has an amazing talent in capturing those timeless moments. A great eye as they would say in the photography world. His edits are second to none, your skin will look smooth and well balanced (great lighting). I recommend him to everyone, he shoots every age or type. A++++
