Alan Shapiro



Thursday, October 8, 2020 – 7 pm via Zoom



Passionate, award-winning photographer. Advertising Chief Creative Officer, too

Alan grew up on the creative side of the advertising world, working with clients around the world; telling their unique stories in very unique ways.

Along the way, he’s had the pleasure of working with many, many talented photographers, directors and content creators. He became envious of their art and craft. At first, he saw it as a means of reducing his stress-filled life. As a Chief Creative Officer at the world’s largest Advertising Agency Network, he needed a distraction. A friend gave him a camera. Then he bought another. And then another. His new hobby and daily “creative exercise regimen” quickly turned into a joy-filled and all-consuming passion. Then his first photo client called. Then another. And then, many more: Lockheed Martin, GM, Cadillac, Apple, Ritz Carlton, Bose, Scholastic…

Alan loves talking to all sorts of people and seem to have a knack for getting them to open up and share themselves despite the intrusion and intimidation that a serious-looking camera often represents.

He likes finding and sharing things he finds.
Beautiful things. Powerful things. Poignant things.

He also enjoys taking something ordinary and making it something well beyond that.

Illustration and painting are other passions which led him to illustrative post processing; he loves creating unique “painted” photographs and photocompositions inspired by the Renaissance Masters.

Alan’s work hangs in corporate and private collections. It graces iPhone screens, retail environments, TV show sets and has been featured on products from housewares to clothing to puzzles.

Nothing makes him happier than sharing his passion and second career that he loves so much with other like-minded folks. He is a very happy man.
