Biography

Tiffany Hagler-Geard is a New York based photographer and has been shooting since 1995. She is currently Director of Social Media and staff photographer at The Humane Society of New York and has been actively working as a photo editor since 2005. Her images have been published on myriad websites and printed publications including ABC News, The New York Post, Life Magazine, NY Daily News, WebMD magazine, Sheknows.com, Stylecaster, and People.com. Her keen interest in environmental photojournalism has taken her to the Midwest where she has been documenting the impact of the drought on farming communities in Southwest Kansas. Her photographs were published in Disaster’s Impact on Livelihood and Cultural Survival (2015, CRC Press), The Natural Hazards Observer, and on ABC News. Based on this project, Tiffany opened a solo exhibition, titled Eighty Years of Dust, which was on display at Fort Lee Public Library in New Jersey in 2015. Prior to Eighty Years of Dust, she worked on another project that centered around the same themes, although this time in an urban environment. 'A Neighborhood in Transition – Murals in Bedford-Stuyvesant' looked at the changes that have taken place in this once infamous Brooklyn neighborhood. Her images were featured in a highly publicized exhibit in Brooklyn’s Bedford Library and were published in A Magazine, a global publication, and the NY Daily News.

In her spare time she is a mentor and teacher at NYC SALT and is also a freelance photo editor and portfolio consultant. Tiffany has been a portfolio reviewer at the Eddie Adams Workshop since 2010 and is currently a black team staff member.
