About Brett

About Me

I’m Brett Deutsch, the owner of Headshots NYC, Gotham Family Photos and Deutsch Photography.  I trained at Pomona College in Claremont, CA, and later in New York City at the New York Institute of Photography and the School of Visual Arts. But mostly I’ve learned how to take a great photograph by taking hundreds of thousands of pictures at home in Manhattan and all over the world.

No matter who or what I photograph — headshots, portraits, landscapes, animals or events — I aim to capture images that are truthful and powerful.  I’m a documentarian at heart, and I like to capture a sliver of story in every photograph.

In addition to my work around NYC, I’ve tramped with my cameras through 26 countries and all 7 continents, including Antarctica. My travel photography and portraits have been published in the United States (including the Dallas Morning News, the Kansas City Star and the Hartford News), and internationally (Time Out London, The Ottawa Citizen, The Regina Leader-Post and The Victoria Times Colonist).

When not shooting photos, I enjoy going on (mis)adventures with my wife Sherri, SamTheDog and our friends.  Check out my photo blog (https://www.deutschphoto.com/blog), which relives one of our grander (Mis)adventures!
