Roman is a published fashion photographer, based in Brooklyn, NY. The aesthetic Roman brings to his fashion shoots is an edgy-glam.
Communicating with models, art-directors and agencies is vital; thinking quickly in the moment, improvising and creating an amazing image with what is available (since budgets vary) is a strength and brought to every shoot. Roman is able to capture the natural beauty and energy of the moment and the retouching takes that image to new heights.

Emigrating to the New York City as a child from the U.S.S.R., Roman was raised in the 80s -–moving around the City quite a bit made him a reserved voyeur, observing and imagining. In the 90s he was a young adult where the style of the 80s evolved to the gritty realism in film, grunge music and the "supermodel". His experience bridged reality and glamour that now is at the heart of every photo-shoot.
Initially Roman was studying creative writing at Sarah Lawrence College before going into Media Studies at Hunter College (CUNY). Eventually, through some interesting circumstances he found himself working as an audio mastering engineer, working with many artists, labels and indies. The skill-set, approach and creative senses are mutual to both disciplines. The access to creative thinkers, visual tapestry-makers and like-minded people honed some of the skills needed in photography and retouching.
Photography has always been in his family where aggressive photo-taking with his father every other weekend. Images, albums and great art hanged on the walls of both his family homes. Creativity, aesthetic, artistry and evocative imagery is the goal of each shoot Roman Vail. He will help you find the voice you want to share and get your images to not only look their best but allow for a "feel" to come across as though out from the image but from within your beautiful eye.
