Tiffany Hagler-Geard is a New York photographer shooting since 1995. She is currently staff photographer and Director of Social Media at The Humane Society of New York and has been actively working as a photo editor and photo director since 2005.
Her images have been published on myriad websites and printed publications including ABC News, The New York Post, Life Magazine, NY Daily News, WebMD magazine, Sheknows.com, Stylecaster, and People.com.
Her keen interest in environmental photojournalism has taken her to the Midwest where she has been documenting the impact of the drought on farming communities in Southwest Kansas. Her photographs were published in Disaster’s Impact on Livelihood and Cultural Survival (2015, CRC Press), The Natural Hazards Observer, and on ABC News. Based on this project, Tiffany opened a solo exhibition, titled Eighty Years of Dust, which was on display at Fort Lee Public Library in New Jersey in 2015. Prior to Eighty Years of Dust, she worked on another project that centered around the same themes, although this time in an urban environment. 'A Neighborhood in Transition – Murals in Bedford-Stuyvesant' looked at the changes that have taken place in this once infamous Brooklyn neighborhood. Her images were featured in a highly publicized exhibit in Brooklyn’s Bedford Library and were published in A Magazine, a global publication, and the NY Daily News.
In her spare time she is a mentor and teacher at NYC SALT and is also a freelance photo editor and portfolio consultant. Tiffany has been a portfolio reviewer at the Eddie Adams Workshop since 2010 and is currently a black team staff member. While working at ABCNews, Tiffany and her team were awarded the Peabody award for outstanding news outlet’s coverage of Super Storm Sandy in 2012.
NYC SALT is a non-profit photography program serving inner city teens in New York City.
Tiffany currently resides in Hastings on Hudson with her adorable husband, 2 crazy cats and handsome son Charlie.

"To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”- Elliott Erwitt
