Harrison Cooney is a portrait, lifestyle and travel photographer based in Central Florida. In 2008 he embarked on a yearlong trip around the world, which spanned 22 countries and six continents. Traveling sparked a curiosity and commitment to make a deeper connection with the planet. Needing to find a creative outlet to tell his stories, it became clear that portrait, lifestyle and travel photography was the answer. Harrison strives to create rich and vibrant photographs that evoke a cinematic feeling. The images he creates can tell a story without words, which requires talent, skill and an intimate connection with his subject matter.
Since graduating with an Associates of Science in Photographic Technology, Harrison has had the opportunity to work and learn from some of the most accomplished photographers in the industry. He has assisted on projects for companies including New York Times Magazine, Adidas, Reebok, People Magazine, Golf Digest, Sports Illustrated, Darden, Proctor & Gamble among others. Harrison has personally shot for Disney Destinations, Yellow Shoes Creative Group, Orlando Signature Magazine and Cancer Treatment Centers of America.
Harrison is passionate about wildlife, the environment and helping to save the planet and endangered species for generations to come. Harrison’s most fulfilling project to date is when he joined forces with his father to create The Wildlife Defenders. It photographically tells the human story of those working behind the scenes and risking their lives daily to protect and defend endangered species around the world.
