As a Photographer download headshots
Photographer and visual artist, Stefan Pinto, approaches his work with a wealth of experience from both sides of the lens. The former Wall Street web developer, graphic designer and fashion model applies his life experiences to his art. In 2008, he went on expedition with National Geographic to Oaxaca, Mexico.

It was there, Pinto learned the fundamentals of storytelling using photography. Light and shadow defines Pintos photographic style and makes his images true works of art. A great photographer can make any model look amazing. A mediocre photographer needs a great model to make him look amazing.


• Portraits of Pride

In 2018, Stefan Pinto was asked to photograph celebrities having a direct impact on the social sphere. His portraits of Laverne Cox, Anthony Rapp and Jesse Tyler Ferguson were featured in the June issue of Los Angeles Confidential magazine. Pinto's most recent exhibition Are you a Super Hero? Are you a Super Villain featured over 100 images of celebrities, civilians, athletes, models and porn stars as DC Comics characters.

• Smoke + Mirrors

In Smoke and Mirrors, Stefan Pinto's first solo exhibition (Los Angeles, California) Pinto produces a compelling photographic survey, chronicling a post modern age of multiracial, multicultural and gender-fluid people who inhabit his portraiture. His luminous images are filled with tender interactions. His Tom of Finland portraits intimately connect us with their subjects. The people who live in Stefan Pinto's photographs are in deep conversation and they all have something to say. Like Diane Arbus, Pinto evokes the human condition with a deep love and respect for his subjects. Each person in Pinto's world is making a statement about affection, desire, and vulnerability. Within his mirrored photo booth and mini sets, Pinto makes his subjects visually compelling. With strobe lights and mirrored reflections he gives us a double look at his subjects that is highly revelatory. He ferrets out their individuality and directs them to reveal who they truly are. Sometimes he anoints them with smoke, other times you might catch Pinto's own reflection in their portraits. This is the artist-photographer's first solo exhibition and it is a thrilling and auspicious debut.
