I'm Neil Colton, a professional photographer based in Washington, DC, specializing in lifestyle, portrait, travel and fine art photography.
My commercial work includes creating images for ad campaigns and web content for agencies representing clients such as American Express, AT&T, Airbnb and Anheuser Busch. Before becoming a commercial photographer, I was a photojournalist. One of my most memorable and challenging assignments was creating individual portraits of the 600 children of The Village of Hope School in rural Haiti.
Images from that assignment were used as the stage backdrop for a benefit concert in New York following the devastating magnitude 7 earthquake in Haiti in 2010. Images from that assignment have been used by several international non-profit organizations and NGOs for promotional campaigns.
As a contract photographer for a New York based media company, I created portraits of financial barons. I have also had the pleasure of creating portraits for artists, architects, authors, art directors, brides, children, families, journalists, musicians, models, moms and moms-to-be.
My work has been featured in The Washington Post, Elan' Magazine and Professional Photographer, among other publications.
I consider myself blessed to be able do this work. I am honored to be a part of every moment that I capture with my camera.
Thank you for visiting. I hope you enjoy my work.
