Jeffrey Hornstein has been a photographer in New York City for over 25 years doing what he does best: Photographing performers and growing with them over their careers.

Regardless of where you are in your career,my goal as a photographer is to help you excude a unique sense of confidence and charisma. 

I’m fortunate to have helped many performers get their careers off the ground and am consistently referred by Top agents,managers,casting directors and word of mouth 

Many of the actors I have photographed can be seen as series regulars, co-stars and guest stars on television. Many also can be seen in film and theatre. 

In addition to photographing my well known natural light photography, I have been shooting with Unique State of the Art LED lights for shots that make you stand out from the pack and really POP!

My studio is conveniently located on West 30th st in Manhattan and is a full floor loft with huge windows and a terrace with an amazing view of Manhattan where Actors have the option of shooting outdoors.
