I'm Neil Colton, a professional photographer based in Washington, DC
My commercial work includes creating images for ad agencies representing clients such as American Express, AT&T, Airbnb, Anheuser Busch and others. Before commercial photography, I was a photojournalist. One of my most memorable and challenging assignments was creating portraits of the 600 children of The Village of Hope in rural Haiti for The Lazarus Project Haiti. My images from that assignment were used as the stage backdrop for the benefit concert in New York after the magnitude 7 earthquake in Haiti in 2010. Since then, several international non-profits and NGOs have used my images for promotional campaigns.
My lifestyle, photojournalism and travel photography has been featured in The Washington Post, Elan' Magazine and Professional Photographer, among other publications.
I have created portraits as a contract photographer for a New York based media company and for artists, architects, authors, art directors, journalists, musicians, models and moms.
Over the years, I have had the good fortune to work for many wonderful clients and now, to create Fine Art images for sale. I consider myself blessed to do this work. I am honored to be a part of every moment that I capture with my camera.
I am always looking for new projects, new assignments and new challenges. Contact me if you have a project or an assignment you would like to discuss.
Thank you for visiting. I hope you enjoy my work.
