Austin Ruffer is a New York City–based photographer who specializes in portraiture and intimate live performance. He is interested in the interaction of vibrant color with the beauty of candid moments, whether onstage or in close conversation.
Austin got his start as a photographer while documenting the nightlife scene at Club Cumming in the East Village. With a background in acting and theater, he prefers to play the role of a supportive "scene partner" in portrait shoots: engaging his subjects in conversation, assisting their needs and instincts, and guiding them toward truthful and revealing moments to capture.
