Hello and Welcome!
I am Cheryl Machat Dorskind, based in The Hamptons, Long Island, New York (and eager to travel with camera). I work as a photographer, an artist, an educator, and a trusted adviser on a mission to share my love of photography.
I began my career as a photographer blending my love for painting with photography, coining the phrase handpainting and photopaintings with the publication my book, The Art of Handpainting Photographs.
I continue to exhibit my photopaintings and also offer this art form to my portrait clients.
If you are looking for a portrait or a family photo session, then you have arrived at the right place, as I am a seasoned professional with an esteemed and loyal clientele. I am a master craftsman and create natural and honest portraits and one-of-a-kind photo products.
Are you looking to up your photography skills? I have many educational offerings, as I have been teaching photography for over 30 years as a professor, an online instructor, and as a master photography workshop instructor, and Hamptons Photo Instructor.
For those looking to dive deeper to communicate what you see in a heartfelt manner, then you arrived on the right page. As your mentor, I provide the platform to explore and enrich your photography practice with strategies and lessons for you to grow to your full artistic creative storytelling potential.
I am a proud momma of two amazing daughters and a loving wife, and a friend to many. When I am not working, I splurge on reading, walking (always with a camera), swimming, and exploring nature and color.
I am glad you found my page. Why don’t you give me a call and we will explore how I can be of service to you.
