ABOUT JEFF KOLODNY
Photography has been Jeff’s passion for practically his entire life. From the moment he picked up a camera in his elementary school years he has not put it down since. Not only did the talented pre-teen learn to develop film he developed a love for capturing everything around him. His hobby kept growing and he furthered his knowledge and skills by attending Adelphi University in New York with a major in Communications & Photography.
Before Jeff received his degree, he was pounding the pavement in NYC and being paid for his keen eye and ability to also re-edit motion picture films while assisting a prominent New York City Director of Photography. Upon graduation in 1985, he packed up his camera bags and headed out west to Los Angeles, CA where he gained the most valuable experience working in and around the Hollywood film industry. He was noticed instantly by Willy Leon Photography, one of LA’s premier portrait and wedding photography studios, where he received his first job and lessons in the elite wedding world.
While always perfecting his craft, he took on another position as a custom photographic printer and then went on to work at Color House in Burbank CA, now re-named ColorEdge, one of the most prestigious labs in the country. He was soon printing images for world-renowned photographers Andre DeDienes (Marilyn Monroe’s first photographer), Herb Ritts, and Annie Leibovitz. Other clients on the roster included Universal Studios, Paramount, Warner Brothers, Disney, NBC, and a multitude of respectable Hollywood entertainment organizations.
The opportunity also allowed Jeff to build his portfolio with photography from Jay Leno’s Tonight Show, NASA, and other local government agencies. During his three-year stint at the lab, Jeff learned what comprised a great photograph. He was competent in continually shooting for proper color, balance, and contrast with every subject.
In 1993, Jeff Kolodny Photography & Video was established. As his obsession with perfecting his skills grew, so did his client list. The impressive line-up included The Los Angeles Times, OPI, Dermalogica, The Los Angeles Fire Department, and the Honda Motor Company to name a few. His work began to be published in popular publications such as Vogue,Elle, Cosmopolitan & Playboy as well as several professional photography books: The Best of Professional Digital Photography (by Amherst Media) and The Wedding Photographers Handbook.
Ultimately, he moved back east and planted himself in South Florida where he continues to provide exceptional, professional, and unique photographic services. Each of his events is covered with precision and extraordinary attention to detail. Cutting-edge techniques, such as infrared shooting & X-Processing, and split toning are incorporated into Jeff’s signature art form so he can deliver a first-rate product with sensational album design options each time. Clients love his custom-designed options to commemorate their most special occasion.
The award-winning photographer has received accolades from Wedding Portrait Photographers International, International Photography Award, and the Sibern: Best of Photography Award and continues to be published in distinguished books and magazines.
When not capturing life’s milestone moments, Jeff can be found spending time with his wife, Robin, and their son, Joel.
