ABOUT ME

IT'S NICE TO
MEET YOU!

How much does a polar bear weigh?
Enough to break the ice!

Hi! I'm COLLEEN PUTMAN

I'm a New Yorker (I've lived here long enough now so I'm allowed to say that) who grew up in Florida and studied Art History at a small liberal arts school in Vermont. After graduation I studied photography at ICP (the International Center of Photography). I absolutely love to travel and have explored 5 continents already (I'm coming for you, South America and Antarctica!) I also have a degree in World Religions, and the one thing I've found to be true is that all over this planet, despite how different we may think we are, we all strive to be happy and feel connected.

Taking photographs of people and my travels is my way of creating happiness.  Looking at photographs of your loved ones or magical places should bring you joy, and it's my absolute pleasure to create it.

locations

While I love traveling near and far for photo assignments, my home base is right in Manhattan, which provides the BEST backdrop for photo shoots.

Some of my favorites include:  Central Park, Grand Central Station, Brooklyn Bridge Park, The High Line, The West Village, Tribeca, SoHo, The Lower East Side, The Metropolitan Museum, and Bryant Park.  

Not in NYC?  I'm happy to come to you!  Some of my loveliest clients have had me come to them in: Boston, Nova Scotia, Vermont, New Orleans, Dubai, Tampa, Boca Raton, New Jersey, Connecticut, Abu Dhabi, Michigan, Oregon, Colorado, Calgary, Kansas, Mexico, Chicago, Texas, The Mediterranean, Nashville, Kentucky, and South Africa!
