Judy with Nelson Mandela
Upon graduating from The High School of Art&Design in New York City, Judy Schiller received her BFA in photography from the School of Visual Arts also in New York City. After working for Rebecca Blake and Hal Davis, she was a freelance photography assistant for five years. In 1988, Judy launched Judy Schiller Photography, specializing in fashion photography based in New York. Over time, due to her lifelong passion and appreciation for music, she gravitated towards photographing musicians. Since 1995, though she has kept her concentration on musicians, her photographic scope has expanded to include photographing CEO's of Fortune 500 companies and publishing houses. Recently, as a manifestation of her passion for images, as well as film, Judy directed and produced her first music video.
