Nancy Strogoff


Based in Southern California, Nancy began her career as a New York City-based political media strategist while discovering a passion for photography.  From the insights into people and cultures she gained from her involvement in politics, and her love of the visual palette, she developed a strong interest in documenting the human experience through the medium of photography.

Her 'Oakland Portrait' was funded by a grant from the San Francisco Foundation. Many of the images were exhibited at the Eye Gallery, Intersection For The Arts, San Francisco Camerawork, and the Lillian Paley Center For The Arts.  Nancy received numerous awards for the 'Oakland Portrait' images.  

Nancy also received awards for her reportage of the 1992 national political conventions from the Colorado Press Association, including:  First and Second Place, Best Photo Essay, for the Republican and Democratic conventions, respectively, and Third Place, and Best Feature Photo for the Clinton inauguration.  Aside from photojournalism, Nancy's professional photography assignments have included portraiture, movie stills, advertising, events and occasions.  

Nancy's clients have included the Los Angeles Times, the Colorado Statesman, Showtime,, Zuma Press Photo Agency, the Jewish Journal, Santa Monica Chamber of Congress, and more.  Nancy's portraits of youth were featured in a Public Media Center/Gannett bus stop shelter campaign.

Among Nancy's many published photographs is a portrait of photographer Mary Ellen Mark.*
