Justin Bettman is a California born photographer currently based in NYC. He began working with images and composition as an advertising art director before transitioning to editorial and commercial photography. Both his portraiture work and his larger tableau scenes are excellent examples of how Justin uses deliberate shadow, light, and color to execute layered stories within a single image.
Justin is the recipient of the Photo District News’ Emerging Photographer Award, Broncolor’s GenNext Award, and a Cannes Lion. His personal project #SetintheStreet has been featured in The Guardian, Wired, New York Magazine, USA Today, and Mashable.
