I was a professional dancer in NYC for 19 years. I traveled the world with one of the most prestigious dance companies in the world and lived my dream. In that time I had the privilege to work with incredible artists of all stripes. I photographed head shots, portraits, and dance photography for at least a decade while living in NYC and I acquired an easy and relaxed rapport with all my clients behind the camera.

The level of professionalism and inspiration that pours from Graciano is refreshing and incredibly powerful. It's been a pleasure and an honor to share creative space with this talented man. Discipline is often talked about but rarely walked so well. More...


I don't claim to have all the answers BUT listening to the client and making them feel comfortable is key. After that I start focus strongly on how light affects the image and compositional elements.

When was the last time you had your photograph taken?
Do you like getting your picture taken?
Do you have a favorite artist?

Connecting with people. Even when our differences are night and day I love that photography can serve as an entry point to our vulnerabilities. We can delight in our differences and feel connected by what we share.

The photograph of you isn't about my ego. I take no delight in technical mastery (if that ever happens) if I don't see a part of your personality shining through the lens and off the screen. I want to know you and photography helps me do that.

It depends. I've had some success on instagram doing FaceTime photo shoots. Check @ciscograciano and most of my recent work has been shot on FaceTime.

I shoot with a long lens so I'm more than six feet away from you as often as possible. When I have to be closer I'm doubling up on the mask. Let's go vaccines! Almost there!


I offer headshots to all performing artists and since im new on Bark the first 20 to sign up can book an outdoor shoot for $125! Looking forward to meeting you!

First 20 portraits are $150! My portrait sessions are focused on getting to know you and the images are secondary. I believe the greatness of a portrait comes from providing a safe and empowering atmosphere for person who is front of the camera. Let's face it we can't all be Timothee Chalemet or Christy Tiegan. Being in front of a camera can be intimidating and put us outside of the present moment. I take pride in lessening the discomfort of a shoot because I'm interested in you!
