A Photo Biography of Alan Goldberg

My passion for taking photos started when I was 4.  After college I purchased my first 35mm camera.  My first mentors told me if I want to get to be good at this I should "shoot, shoot, shoot" and so I did!  Composition I learned is innate.  You either have it, or you don't!  In our mind's eye we see things the way we want them to be and not necessarily how they are.  It was during the last 30 years that I had to learn to take what was in front of me and turn it into art.

I am a highly sought after photographer for many local musicians having being dubbed "The Hardest Working Rock Photographer in North Jersey".  I also have been recognized " by major recording artists for my work.  I have photographed a number of legends and upcoming artists to date. Also, Nature and Landscape Photography quite my mind so I find peace and center. From these photos, I create my art.

I have been in more than 20 shows and have become the Director of Photography for four independent films entitled "Collision at Split Rock" and "The Transaction" which has been nominated for "Best Feature Film" in a number of film festivals and won "Best Film", "Best Actor" and lastly "Blood Lust".  I have also worked on another film "Definitely Done It" as Director of Photography. 

It is an absolute pleasure to be part of this year's Art Basel - Miami with The Redwood Art Gallery.
