Larry Tallis

Dedicated Board Member with the St. Augustine Concert BandI began my musical training at NYC’s High School of Performing Arts, and continued through college and graduate school at NYU and Stony Brook where I spent thousands of hours listening and evaluating music - hearing what was good - and what wasn't  - was the perfect foundation for my new career in photography.  The natural evolution from sound to sight was an easy transition for me.

Over the years as part photo technician and part artist, I have had the opportunity to teach and lecture at universities across the United States. What I appreciate most though is the impact I've made working with countless fledgling photographers and helping them develop both shooting and personal skills.

After three decades of photographing parties and life cycle events, corporate executives, educators, labor leaders, politicians, record covers for classical and rock musicians and book covers, I believe I’ve earned the stature to pick and choose my assignments. Semi-retirement in North Florida has its rewards. In addition to sun, surf and a young grandson, I’m experiencing the same artistic exhilaration I felt when I first began my practice of photography thirty years ago. I now too have the time and expertise to donate to charitable and philanthropic organizations - which is my way of saying “thank you” for the amazing career I have enjoyed.

What keeps it fresh for me is my introspection. It’s always about critiquing each assignment. Then I think how fortunate I am to do what I love!
