Internationally recognized, award-winning, advertising, celebrity, & music photographer Dale May, has been pushing the boundaries of photography and post-production for more than 15 years. Best known for his richly stylized, character-driven, conceptual imagery, Dale has captured some of today’s most recognizable personalities, including Charlize Theron, Elizabeth Banks, Jared Leto, Isaac Mizrahi, Seth Meyers, Christina Aguilera, Moby and Gene Simmons.
Personally passionate about music and performance, Dale also has shot countless bands ranging from Black Sabbath to 30 Seconds To Mars, as well as the Broadway casts of West Side Story, 9 to 5, Hair and Spiderman Turn Off The Dark.
Although Dale has remained focused on his commercial career, his roots have always been firmly planted in the fine arts. He moved to NY to study painting, color theory, and art history at Parson's School of Design. The foundation of these first few years shaped his current aesthetic style and he graduated in 1993 with a BFA in Photography.
Combining his background in painting and color theory, lighting and post production, Dale works with the inspiration to make the unthinkable real, as well as believable.
