Chili Palmer was born and raised in Brooklyn NYC one of two sons of Polish and Irish immigrants. He is currently a member of the Professional Photographers of America Association. Mr. Palmer has traveled extensively and lived in Chicago, Miami, Philadelphia, Baltimore and the Johnstone Atoll. An avid photography enthusiast his whole life, he is a self taught photographer, working primarily in 35 mm and digital formats. He majored in Art in college but eventually obtained his degree in nuclear engineering.
Mr Palmer brings a diversified background to the photography field as well as perhaps a new direction that warmly embraces new ideas, new points of view, and new faces. He artistically blends New York City Urban motifs with Glamour and Fashion, as well as reaching back to Hollywood’s Film Noir era for inspiration for his shoots and interpreting the clients visions. Also, look for hints of his favorite directors such as Alfred Hitchcock, Akiro Kurosawa, Sergio Leone, Ridley Scott, Barry Sonnefield, M. Night Shyamalan, and of course Quentin Tarentino just to name a few in his work.
His work is dedicated to the following sentient beings:
In memory of his father, who taught him in dying the final lesson: “that there is no place like home”.
In memory of Chewbacca, his faithful dog, an Akita better known as Chewie, who now waits for him patiently at the Rainbow Bridge. “Of all the souls I have come across, his was the most human.”
To an over the top photographer, whose CREATIONS are uncomparable!!!
