Once there was a guy named Dennis Cahlo who dreamed of touring the world as a renowned musician. He did just that but without achieving the renowned part.
Along the crazy journey he took pictures with a camera his parents bought him. He photographed everything he saw. Most of the photos were terrible. But they eventually got better.
At some point he amassed a small kingdom of light meters, 35mm, and medium format cameras. With all that equipment he taught himself how to photograph things. People things. Animal things. Building things. He photographed all the time and eventually got really good at it.
One day someone asked, "Hey Dennis, I like your pictures. Will you take photos of my face?"
"Sure", Dennis said. And here we are.
Since that fateful day, Dennis's photos have appeared in The New York Times, Quest Magazine, and Time Out New York. He has had the pleasure to work with such clients as Alan Flusser, Google, Classic Harbor Line, Sonnier & Castle, Bond New York Real Estate, and Frederic Fekkai.
Expanding the artform into filmmaking and videography, Dennis wrote, directed, produced, and shot his first short film The Weekend in late 2015. It has since been accepted into over 30 film festivals and has won multiple awards.
