As the daughter of an artist, Inna Shnayder started drawing and painting at an early age but discovered her calling as a photographer in college while learning to develop film. At the same time, she pursued a path of studying and teaching Taoist meditation. As a result, Inna not only works with a sense of joy and playfulness but has the ability to put people at ease through her presence.
Inna’s love of travel has taken her around the world as a photojournalist covering human rights issues, cultural events and sustainable tourism. In New York she has worked for corporate brands like the New York Times and private clients in the realm of portrait, maternity and wedding photography. She has found a deep resonance with The Day’s loving approach to working with clients and the studio’s timeless style of artistic documentary photography.
When she’s not photographing, Inna is hiking in nature with friends, dancing and working in the healing arts.
“It is an illusion that photos are made with the camera… they are made with the eye, heart and head.”
