Photography & Motion

Hi, I'm Niv Shank and I'm a photographer and filmmaker originally from Israel, where I spent my early years growing up in a small desert town, by the dead sea. I grew up in a multi cultural home, with an Eastern European father and a Middle Eastern mother. Both inspired me to explore cultures, places, languages and people as a way of life.

I discovered early on that photography was the perfect way to explore the world and different cultures. Since picking up a camera, I have never stopped documenting my world. Photography is the perfect artistic expression for me. I've found that it's the in-between moments when my subjects relax that I am able to capture the most authentic moments. That's what I love.

I’m following my vision to create images that are inspired from life, real people, candid moments, landscapes and memories. I work mostly on location and I always shoot with a narrative in mind. I take great satisfaction in creating a fresh experience with each of my subjects.
