It's been about 8 years since I started Photography by Roy and my love for photography hasn't diminished one bit. (600 newborns and counting!)
My photographic journey started a few years before digital began to transform the industry. Using film was a great way to learn my craft and for personal projects I sometimes still shoot medium format film.
Since 1999 I've been involved in the photographic industry in one way or another. From working in a lab professionally retouching images, to maintaining an e-commerce site selling photographic gear to working at weddings and events. Each of these jobs has helped me develop skills that I now use on a daily basis.
I consider myself very fortunate to be able to photograph for a living.
I love capturing sincere moment, and the best way to achieve that is by making sure my clients are comfortable and having genuine fun during our session.
Sessions are always relaxed to capture real and natural moments.
Photojournalism is my favorite style of shooting. Taking a step back and letting you be yourself is most important.
Work Ethics & Personality
Easy going yet always after the perfect shot; and always excited to do what I do.
I usually book one client per day, and always make sure there is no need to rush during a session.
Ask any of my clients and they'll probably tell you my patience and professionalism are what stand out the most.
Under-Promise and Over-Deliver
I work hard for each and every one of my clients and I like to think it shows in the results... I try to always go above and beyond what is expected.

PHOTOGRAPHY BY ROY – NYC. LONG ISLAND AND TRI-STATE.
Welcome to the new Photography by Roy portfolio website.
Roy Somech is a New York Photographer serving clients all over the tri-state area to capture both portrait and commercial images. From the Hamptons, to New Jersey, NYC and Connecticut the studio comes to you.
Since 2006, I have been traveling on location to clients’ homes to document very special times in their lives.
My style is mostly documentary. Letting my subjects be themselves results in fun, unique and true lifestyle portraits.
Many of my sessions take place at the client’s home, which is a great advantage for sessions with newborns and babies. When possible, I like to shoot outdoors around NYC.
