Billy Mangino



I am an established 28 year old portrait photographer and event videographer from central New Jersey, USA. New Jersey is a beautiful crossroad between NYC and Philadelphia arts. I represent 10 years of passion, obsession, dedication. Each day I strive to learn the latest techniques and strategies to assure that I am consistently up to speed on the latest trends and styles in the field of photography. High fashion and avant-garde conceptual work is my main vision but my skill and style is versatile enough to exceed my client's demands. HOW I WORK: I tend to scout and hand-select the model's that I work with for personal work but my main forte is client related services such as: Headshots, Portraits, Nightlife, Glamour, Intimates, Video Production, Retouching, and more. There are many concepts I wish to capture but I always entertain my model's ideas and in some cases exchange to meet the needs of one another's portfolio. ATMOSPHERE: I am a very professional empathetic feminist. I treat my models with respect and prefer to work with and promote new talent who believe that we can all make a living doing what we love and have fun doing it. *I look forward to working with new talented artists.

Long awaited photo shoot with Ashley finally came to life yesterday on the streets of my hometown Somerville, NJ USA. Fun, energetic and down to earth; there isn't much more you can ask for when shooting on the fly like I often do. Very happy with the outcome. I'll be posting more images within the next week!

Finally something good appears on the horizon. I've been going through a really rough financial time these past few months but it's about to change. The new studio is a garage rental and fully painted, backdrop, lighting, etc. . . with more than enough space to shoot move around and even dressing room/Hair/MUA. Also My new job as a pre-press graphic designer is going well. Looking forward to good things.
