Daphne Youree is a skilled portrait, event and fine arts photographer. She’s had numerous exhibits in fine art/documentary photography in NYC, Prague, London, and China. Her work has been published in various magazines including Vogue and Town & Country.
Daphne kicked off her career on newspaper photo assignments, but she soon realized that her passion is collaborating with and photographing people of all ages. She has photographed models, athletes, actors, tv chefs, diplomats, mitzvahs and weddings. She loves the new and interesting experiences she has with her clients, and is often characterized as friendly and open yet highly professional.
Though based in NYC, assignments have taken her as far away as Israel, London and China. She also worked for many years for legendary fashion photographer Arthur Elgort -- a Vogue favorite.
Daphne resides in Williamsburg, Brooklyn with her husband and two children, two cats, and a Bearded dragon lizard. Her former lives include being a child actress on tv, a singer in a Czech progressive electronics band as a rapper, through which she (sorta) met President Vaclav Havel, and now she concentrates on her work, both participating and photographing in the health and fitness world.
