SIDNEY OSTER

Based in Tampa, FL, Sidney is a portrait, business and event photographer originally from New York City and Las Vegas. Known for his impressive eye for detail and craftsmanship, Sidney first discovered photography in college while taking an elective art class for his business bachelor's degree. He loved the beauty of images so much that he would go on to complete undergraduate degrees in both finance and photography.

 

Sidney’s style of contemporary, fashion-inspired portraiture gives his clients magazine-quality images and a fun, often transformative, experience, both inside and outside of the studio. Sidney’s commitment to making sure all of his portrait clients look and feel their best, and the time he takes to understand his client’s needs, ensures that he will create the best photograph of you ever – guaranteed!

 

Prior to devoting himself full-time to photography, Sidney spent over 20 years as an investment banking and corporate development professional for some of the most respected names in the financial and gaming industries, including Caesars Interactive Entertainment, owner of the World Series of Poker. During this time, Sidney also completed his MBA at The University of Texas at Austin, where he competed nationally in several entrepreneurship and business plan writing events. These contests led Sidney to launch Legend Sports Gear, a sports technology company that was a member of the Austin Technology Incubator, the longest active technology incubator in the United States.

 

Leveraging his extensive business experience, Sidney began to focus on corporate and small business clients, in addition to his private portrait customers. Since 2018, Sidney has had the pleasure of working with literally dozens of local business owners, from restaurant chains to a builder of high-performance racing engines.

In 2019, Sidney launched Your Visual Advantage(TM) , a proprietary in-house brand created to provide a variety of professional visual solutions for businesses. Recent clients include some of the most well-known organizations in the Las Vegas valley and nationally, including The Smith Center for the Performing Arts and GoDaddy Social.

 

Sidney not only photographs for personal and business clients, but he also uses the power of images to help children waiting in foster care and to bring awareness to the plight of the millions of homeless, abandoned and abused animals living in shelters in the United States. Additionally, through his photography, Sidney works to dispel the dangerous myths about bully breed dogs, which lead to discriminatory breed-specific legislation and to hundreds of thousands of such pets being euthanized each year. #PhotographySavesLives. #AdoptDontShop.

 

Sidney’s bold and striking images have appeared on every major local Las Vegas TV news program, in numerous newspapers and magazines such as the Las Vegas Review-Journal and Luxury Las Vegas, in support of editorial content for The Dodo and Best Friends Animal Society, and in several business publications and annual reports.

 

When you don’t see Sidney with a camera in his hands, you can usually find him hiking or kayaking, getting ready for his next travel adventure (most recently participating in the Honolulu Marathon), or spending time with his wife, Heather.
