I’m a Harlem native and professional photographer. The city, the streets, and the people of New York are my muses. I’m a proud member of a very niche community of almost extinct photographers who still use fully manual instant cameras. I’ve worked with Cartier, Nike, Hendricks Gin, MAC Presents, and more. Together, let’s make a lifelong memory in just one shot and preserve the beauty of this rare art form.

Jean André Antoine was really able to teach me and share his passion, being in photography myself I could learn more about my own style and I’m really grateful for that !

Thoughtful and creative experience. We roamed around Soho and got to understand his story and vision while snapping polaroids. Plus, he got a great shot of me! I've never had an experience like it! I highly recommend it.

Jean has incredible insight on photography world as a whole. I came in with prior photography background but wanting to be able experience shooting with a Camera from the 40’s and get some tips on portrait photography. I can say for sure that I did leave with a new way to think of my images and the people I shoot with.

The time spent with Jean Andre was very valuable. A way to discover how an artist lives and learn about Polaroid cameras and photo. Lots of good energy to take away with the pictures!
