Harvey A. Duze

harvey_duzeI have almost 40 years of professional and creative photographic and graphic design experience. Growing up in Bayside, Queens, New York, I became interested in photography at an early age, thanks to my father and uncle, who were very talented amateur photographers. After graduating from high school, I studied first at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, earning an AAS degree in Fashion Photography, then later at the Rochester Institute of Technology where I earned my BFA in Photographic Illustration.

I’ve worked on staff and/or contract for Prudential Insurance, Lockheed Martin, and DuPont, as well as ran my own photography and graphic design business for 10 years in Wilmington, Delaware. I’m currently working on staff for Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP in Washington, D.C. as part of their marketing group, involved with both graphic design work and handling the occasional photography assignment for the firm.

My photographic work includes a wide range of corporate and editorial location and studio assignments. In recent years, urban and rural landscapes, nature and people have been my favorite subjects. While the majority of my work has been done in the northeastern United States, I’ve also traveled to other parts of the U.S., across the border to Canada, The Bahamas, and overseas to the U.K., Ireland and Italy.

I also have experience in the area of graphic design and desktop publishing, having handled many assignments ranging from graphics to illustrate presentations and both print and Webbased publications, logos and corporate identities and the creation of both speaker-support and self-running “kiosk” PowerPoint presentations, and Web-based HTML and Flash slideshows. My work has been published in the original edition of the Time-Life Photography Library, annual reports of DuPont and American Express Credit Company, and more recently, Akin Gump’s 2010 and 2011 Annual Reviews as well as recently on the firm’s Web site. My photos have also appeared in various other print and on-line publications. I’ve also had my work exhibited in one-man and group shows in New York City, Trenton, NJ, in recent years at the Montpelier Cultural Arts Center in Laurel, Maryland, and several venues in Washington, D.C. In 2008, I started to publish books of my photos on Blurb.com. My latest book, THE ‘WIDER’ VIEW is a collection of panorama photos taken over the past few years, some are being published for the first time. Cherry Blossoms – A Photographic Poem was published in May 2012, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the planting of the cherry trees in Washington, D.C., and the last book in my “Seneca” series (my ongoing documentation of Little Seneca Lake, Lake Churchill and the surrounding area near Germantown, Maryland), Seneca Summer was published in October 2012. You can view samples of my work on my Web site, www.hadphgd.com .
