Event Photographer Don Orkoskey

I'm event photographer Don Orkoskey and I'm here to ensure you receive the best photography in Pittsburgh. For more than 15 years I've worked at my craft and continue to push myself on your behalf. Without you and your attendees I wouldn't be the photographer I am. It's a privilege and a pleasure to work with you and I can't wait to do so again.

Knowing People

Capturing events as well as I do begins with knowing people. I understanding people and can connect with them. Additionally, I recognize how they're going to act, react, and present themselves. People want to be seen a certain way. Because of my experience I can see what they are going to do before they do it.

What drives people, the way we interact with each other, our social experiences; these all fascinate me. It's because of my fascination that I've become so good at predicting a photo opportunity before it happens. Knowing people helps me deliver incredible photos for you.

Photographing People

I've photographed presidents and professional speakers who understand where to look, when to pause, how to hold themselves, and what to do with their hands. That type of photography is easy.

Photographing people who are nervous and unsure of how to present themselves is my expertise. I can help you and your speakers to not only look great while they're presenting at your event. I will anticipate and capture all of the captivating moments. From presenters to attendees I deliver event photos that stand out from the crowd. Use the form above to contact me and ask about my work helping your attendees and presenters look their best.

I invite you to visit my social media profiles to see more examples of my event photography. Have a look at my personal Instagram, my business Instagram, and my Facebook page.
