I'm Hilary Katzen.

A Florida-girl at heart who relocated to the Big Apple. I have been chasing the dream of moving to New York City as a child, and I’m thrilled to be a full-time photographer, living here.

I see photographs, even when a camera is not attached to my face. I started with film photography and can spend hours in a dark-room. However, I also appreciate the world of digital photography, as it is my primary form of photography. 

I grew up in the other Hollywood, the one near Miami, and lived a short time in Florida’s panhandle and capital, Tallahassee. There is where, I ran an event company for 3 years, working with all of the largest night clubs in the area. I also had the opportunity to work with numerous Florida publications.

I have always believed photography is an art and art should evoke emotion. I want to make you sad, happy, angry, scared, hungry, inquisitive, etc. 

With every photograph I take, I strive to make you feel something.

With over 10+ years of photography expertise, I believe that there is no such thing as un-photogenic. I will book up quickly, but have a flexible schedule, with enough notice.

I look forward to working with future clients to create visions into reality.
