Simply Artist Statement
Hello, I am photographer Nikoloz Chogovadze from Brooklyn New York. I always loved taking photos in the early years of my life in Georgia, Tbilisi. I remember when I first received my camera from my dad I was around 6 or 7. Don’t remember the year exactly but I was very excited to unbox my first ever point and shoot camera which I used for photographing animals in the zoo. When I first arrived in the United States at age 11, I had interest in other activities such as sports, but later on, When I became about 14 years old, I got more interested in filmmaking and photography again. I started out shooting action sport pictures for school and kept getting featured on the magazine for my work. It was a start but I also enjoyed fine art photography. I kept learning everything starting from the settings, composition, editing etc. I improved very much and learned through experiences by myself.
I had developed my own style. More people got interested in my work so I became known In Bay Ridge, the neighborhood I live in and also other parts of NY. I have worked for national television and shot videos and photos for the political candidates which got aired. Done work with Michael Grimm, Senator Marty Golden and etc. But then later on when I became almost 18 I focused more towards marketing my work. People really enjoy my work and I decided to pursue this as a career. As of now, I shoot commercial spaces, for example, real estate company COMPASS, Basketball commercials, shoot weddings and events, but my most favorite genres are Fine Art and portraits. I just love creating portraits around different parts of the city. My main goal is to expand on the business side from now on. You can find me on my social media…
