He believes during every sitting something magical happens that’s unforgettable and priceless.
About G.E. Masana’s Artwork
Masana’s signature mix of dramatic photography with painterly touches is inspired by works of the classic Masters of Art through the ages, such as Vermeer, Rembrandt, Caravaggio, John William Waterhouse, among others, who Masana studied. For those desiring his top of the line “Rembrandt” embellishment, he meticulously weaves in painterly touches to the photograph, with lush brushstrokes, tones, textures, adding hand-painted accent embellishments and rendering the work onto artist’s canvas, achieving a timeless, one-of-a-kind personal work of art for you, reminiscent of classic paintings yet modern, worthy of display in the finest homes.
About the Artist
Recognized as one of the finest artist-photographers in the country, G.E. Masana trained in art schools studying painting and illustration under some of New York City’s most notable exhibiting painters while developing his technique. Some of his teachers harkened back to the original “Mad Men” days of commercial artists whose work graced the covers of Colliers and Harper’s Magazine, and iconic advertising campaigns, a bygone era of classic illustration mastered with technique so honed it seemed a modern day incarnation of 16th century Italian Renaissance painters.
He is a living link to that Golden Age of Artists.
While freelancing as an illustrator, Masana traded in his brush for a camera, and a professional photography career spanning several decades was born. His passion brings a blend of Old World fine-art aesthetic to his imagery, and in the process he’s created a new iconography. A published, award-winning photographer often cited in the media, his works are in demand and cherished by clients now in virtually every continent in the world.
Here’s what Masana’s clients are saying about owning a Masana Portrait:

“I love that your work is so classic, so elegant, and so regal like images of the past. The colors in your photos are like colors of a Michelangelo painting. This is what I dream of…”
– Lauren Dasaro, New York NY
“In one word our reaction to the portrait would be, ‘breathtaking’. Every time I walk by where it is hanging, I smile. I don’t know if you understand what you have given us but I hope you know we are so very grateful. You’re an artist with exceptional talent at what you do.”
