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.
Professional affiliations include Getty Images, American Society of Media Professionals(ASMP), Canon Professional Services (CPS), Professional Photographers of America (PPA), Canon Raise, and Musae.
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.
