Presenters Bio:

Stephanie Diani is a New York-based photographer who makes portraits of A-list celebrities (and others) for a cool group of discerning editors, art buyers and creative directors.

She is self-taught, has been an independent photography professional for twenty years, and still gets giddy about a great shoot.

In addition to her passion for photography, Stephanie has scuba dived in Fiji and Belize, zip lined in Hawaii, jumped out of an airplane, earned a black belt in Korean karate, graduated summa cum laude with a degree in classical archaeology, taken trapeze, fencing, Latin, Spanish, French and Italian, bumped into Mr. T in Whole Foods, and been swept off her feet by Fabio.
