Eli Dagostino, a former child actor, is a professional photographer who runs his own Martha’s Vineyard based business shooting weddings and portraits. He also serves as the official photographer for the Martha’s Vineyard Film Festival in Chilmark and is the in-house portrait photographer for the Harbor View Hotel, a 114 unit luxury resort.
Since establishing his business in early 2010, Eli has shot numerous weddings and over 100 portrait sessions, as well as numerous private functions and corporate events both on Martha’s Vineyard and in New York City.
His work has appeared in a number of online publications including MSNBC, Mail.co.uk, and Vogue Italia, and in print in the Boston Globe and Yankee Magazine among others. He has also been the feature of articles in the Huffington Post as well as a number of Martha’s Vineyard publications.
His work is part of many private collections on Martha’s Vineyard, but most notably those of The Martha’s Vineyard Hospital and The Harbor View Hotel.
Eli’s current focus is on a personal project – shooting one lit environmental portrait a day for a year. These photos are posted daily on a dedicated website and will eventually be turned into a book.
