As one of New York City’s most sought after advertising and lifestyle photographers for decades, Nancy Ney has won multiple industry awards, including the Clio. In 2013, her artistic focus shifted and, having honed her craft to a fine art, began traveling the world photographing special situations and unique themes that interested her. Humanity portraits set in exotic geographical regions as well as natural landscapes that possess a singular sense of beauty have become her hallmark.
India, Mexico, Ethiopia, Bhutan, Galapagos, Iceland,Costa Rica, Kenya and Nepal are just some of the countries where she has “gotten the shot.” Her international images have won numerous awards, including First Prize at the ipa Family of Man 2016. She has exhibited in the Coral Gables Museum, and most recently displayed a collection of large metal photographic prints at Spectrum in the Design District during Art Basel 2018: and will soon have large photos on display in the American Airlines Terminal at MIA.
Nancy lives in Miami and is an exhibitor in many of South Florida’s fine art fairs. To view her full portfolio, visit nancyney.com.
“I ﬁrst began shooting because the experience of photographing people was a way of gettng to know them and saving the experience. It made me feel really alive. Then, during my long advertising career,it became a terriﬁc way to solve creative challenges. But still there was always, underneath, the element of wonderment.
Now, as I travel and meet people from diﬀerent cultures, who kindly allow me into their homes and environments, I am ﬁlled with awe as I look through the lens. Sometimes it feels like I’m just sketching elements of personal history as I’m shooting — until the shot suddenly appears. That’s when the shutter really goes to work!

Amazing photographer! Fabulous to work with. Highly recommend
Nancy Ney is a rare, gifted photographer. She approaches her work with passion, determination,honesty and a unique ability to captuure the senses, both inside and out. I own many of her works which give me great pleasure,as it does everyone who comes in contact with it. It's the souls we see in her portraits, deep and intense .
Nancy is a wonderful and talented photographer who has a great eye for both natural landscapes and human portraits alike.
She was a consummate professional in all aspects. She delivered her exquisite photographs, framed and ready to hang in our gallery on Fire Island. Nancy was such a joy to work with that over a 10 year period we featured her in 4 shows. This was highy unusual since we rarely repeat artists. The diversity of her work provided us with this opportunity. Her portraiture, her worldwide travel photographs, portraiture, as well as her creative interpretation of environmental surroundings made her perfect for our seaside community gallery.
I speak to them on the phone and find out what they are looking for and then we set up a time and place to do the shoot.
35 years experience and winner of numerous photography awards.
