Michelle Pedone is a New York City based photographer and director known for her stylized approach to portraiture and visual storytelling. Her energetic personality, eye for color, details and clean graphic style lends itself to a variety of subject matters, whether it’s an entertainer, pro wrestler, CEO or the family pet. Growing up in a military family that was continually on the move has given Michelle a unique perspective on the world. Experiencing the subculture in each new place nourished the love of pop culture, so evident in her work today. She received her BFA from the Corcoran School of Art in Washington DC. Michelle has won several awards from American Photography and the International Photography Awards. Her work has appeared in advertising campaigns for Old Navy and The Learning Channel, as well as numerous publications including Seventeen, Men’s Health, Vibe and World Wrestling Entertainment. Her photographs have been exhibited at Photoville, Brooklyn, NY, Parlor Gallery, Asbury Park, NJ and International Photo Festival Lieiden, Netherlands.
