Since graduating from Tisch School of the Arts at New York University in 2005, Avi Gerver has developed into one of New York City’s premiere sports, entertainment and corporate event photographers. His experience shooting for clients big (Madison Square Garden, Radio City Music Hall, The New York Times, Chase, Volvo) and small (non-profits like the New York Youth Symphony, Brooklyn Children’s Museum, and New York Restoration Project) has given him the tools to tackle any visual challenge.
Avi’s subjects have ranged from President Clinton to Oprah, the Dalai Lama to Paul McCartney, the Radio City Rockettes to Carmelo Anthony and everyone in between. Whether he’s shooting the finish line of the New York City Marathon in the fall, Knicks and Rangers games in the winter, the Tony Awards in the spring, or a corporate event with over 10,000 guests in the summer, Avi keeps busy year round at some of the biggest events New York City has to offer. His photos have appeared in countless major publications, including The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today and Sports Illustrated.
Avi lives in Queens, New York with his wife Shira and son Judah.
