LESTER COHEN PHOTOGRAPHY
Lester Cohen’s love for photography and music started during middle school, caught up between classes and selling pictures he snapped from concerts attended the prior night and printed in his very own darkroom. Decades passed, and Lester became the entertainment industry’s go-to photographer, covering household events such as the Golden Globes, SAG Awards, The Grammy’s, Academy Awards, Emmy’s, and MTV’s VMA Awards. As the internet bubble burst in the early 2000s, Lester leveraged the world wide web and founded WireImage – the world’s leading digital entertainment agency at the time – instantly revolutionizing the photography business in 2001, and acquired by Getty Images in 2007. Lester currently resides in Los Angeles, California, and is available to cover award shows, premiere coverage, Red-Carpet events, film and music festivals, tour photography, as well as executive portraits.
