Eli Meir Kaplan is a lifestyle and portrait photographer in Washington, DC. He became interested in visual media after his parents brought home an early black and white video camera to their apartment in Queens. Eli’s first of many videos on the camera was a stop-motion battle between He-Man and Skeletor, which he made when he was four years old.

Always passionate about storytelling and beautful imagery, Eli found that his purpose as a photographer was to capture sensitive, honest and emotional moments. He’s been told that he’s fun to work with.
