Valentin Gienger is a Portrait and Headshot photographer based in New York City, catering to both corporate and private clients. Valentin began his photographic career in his native Germany in 2012.

His previous work has included corporate clients such as high-profile law firms, not-for-profit corporations, and financial/insurance companies, among others. His photographic style is characterized by precision, clarity, and a knack for great lighting.
