ARTIST BIO: New Jersey-based photographer and former entertainment attorney, Peter Alessandria, has a unique story that has been a source of inspiration for many. When the Global Financial Crisis of 2008 robbed him of his law practice, instead of giving up he decided to renew his life by doing what he loves: photography. Since then Peter has amassed 46 awards for his fine art photography and has had his photos displayed in dozens of solo and group exhibitions. His work has been published nationally and internationally and he has been the subject of several print, radio, television and Internet interviews. He was recently featured on NBC TV NY's website and social media feeds as one of their three favorite NYC Instagram photographers. His photos have been published in the New York Post (twice), The Times (London), The Daily Mirror (UK), The Daily Mail (UK), The Sun (AUS), The Daily Record (UK), The Daily Star(UK) and more. His work has also been featured on several television shows including The Weather Channel's "It's Amazing Out There!", "Good Day New York" (Fox 5 NY), and LIVE With Kelly (US syndicated). National Geographic Magazine selected one of his photos as "Photo of the Day" on their website recently and his photos have been published in Digital Photo Magazine (US) (twice) and Lens Magazine (EUR) (twice). He was a finalist in The Weather Channel's 2016 Photo Contest and 2015 Empire State Building Photo Contest. And the famed New Yorker Hotel in New York City recently acquired seven (7) of his photos as part of a permanent installation at the Hotel.

While the decision to give up being a lawyer was difficult, and at times even scary, he has overcome the odds - and his fears - and today works as a full time fine art and commercial photographer. Let Mr. Alessandria's uplifting story touch your audience in powerful ways. He is currently available for interviews and will bring samples of his award-winning work. He has thousands of compellingly beautiful images that never cease to amaze people and will surely captivate your audience.
