to David Sokol Photographer.
Photography started for David Sokol 40+ years ago
when his grandfather showed him how to hold his Leica. Music started
for David at age five when the same grandfather sat him down at
the piano. The two passions merged after opening Euphoria
Studios, a now-legendary New York music recording studio,
David and Euphoria's staff are fortunate in that they work with
some of the world's greatest artists: Salif Keita, Mike Stern, Herbie
Hancock, Suzanne Vega, Joe Jackson and many others. This relationship
has led David to shoot thousands of photographs of musical personalities,
besides other interesting projects.
Sokol on His Photography
I began with candids and through the years
was asked to photograph many portraits, album covers and product
endorsements, such as shoots for Maverick Records, Jim Capaldi of
Traffic fame and Michael Powers for Guitar World Magazine.
is simple yet sophisticated. Images are captured and processed
with the latest technology. The camera I use is the Canon EOD
1DS Mk.3. The camera's 21 megapixel sensor captures the deepest
and most detailed photos imaginable. I
use only prime lenses, not zooms. Zoom lenses have a subtle distortion
which can distract the viewer.
