Stephanie Diani is a New York-based photographer who makes portraits of A-list celebrities and others for a cool group of discerning editors, art buyers and creative directors. She uses cinematic light and shadow to capture the subtle nuances of her subjects in moments of contemplation, humor or playfulness. She is self-taught, has been an independent photography professional for twenty years, and still gets giddy about a great shoot. Her work has appeared in The New York Times, Mindful, TIME, Fortune, Inc, AARP, American Way, Good Housekeeping, Backstage, The Wrap, The Wall Street Journal, Popular Mechanics, The Harvard Business Review, and many other leading publications. She picks groovy Spotify playlists, believes photoshoots should be fun, and is damn good with wardrobe clips.
In addition to her passion for photography, Stephanie has scuba dived in Fiji and Belize, zip-lined in Hawaii, jumped out of an airplane, earned a black belt in Korean karate, graduated summa cum laude with a degree in classical archaeology, taken trapeze, fencing, Latin, Spanish, French and Italian, bumped into Mr. T in Whole Foods, and been swept off her feet by Fabio, and more recently, Major General Walter Piatt (see photo).
