[Studio NYC] Artist Profile : Adriana Cruz

January 19, 2011

New York, NY — Sitka Creations is happy to have met New Jersey photographer Adriana Cruz through a photographer friend who will be the subject of a later article.

By Michala Smith

In the winter of 2006, Adriana Cruz visited the old farmhouse where her brother lives. She walked into the laundry room to get something and found herself mesmerized by the way the sunlight was hitting a vintage doorknob. She immediately dashed out of the room to grab her camera and started clicking away, without realizing that this was the moment that paved the way for her future career in photography. In the blink of an eye, Ms. Cruz was being approached about her rates. She responded by creating HereNorth Photography. HereNorth specializes in everything from weddings and couples to children and high fashion shoots, and her work does not stop after the picture has been taken. She is fully involved in the editing process, which may involve adjusting exposure, white balance, darkness, cropping, etc. She finds this post-production stage both interesting and pleasurable. Currently, Ms. Cruz lives in New Jersey and works throughout the tri-state area. Eventually, she would love to advance her career from her present part-time status to that of a full-time fashion photographer.

You can contact Ms. Cruz at and find more information on her website, www.herenorthphotography.com
