I love Philadelphia and have a vast archive of real estate, portrait and street photography. My work has been published in Popular Photography Magazine, Philadelphia Magazine, Philadelphia City Paper and on numerous websites including Hidden City Philadelphia, Curbed Philly, Philadelphia Magazine's Philly Property blog and Plan Philly's "Eyes on the Street." I was recently selected as a finalist and published in Photography Forum Magazine's Annual Best of Photography 2014 book with an image from my In Transit series.
Philadelphia documentary and portrait photography is my primary interest and I am working on several volunteer and portrait projects in 2017.
I am a contributor to Hidden City Philadelphia, a non-profit organization with a mission to "Inspire people to be curious about the city, to fall in love with its remarkable but lesser-known places, and to give their time, resources, and ideas to realize new futures for the places and communities where we work." My author archive on Hidden City Daily can be found here: http://hiddencityphila.org/author/TheresaStigale/
In 2012, I joined the Leadership Team of The Philadelphia Photo League which was formed to emulate the original New York Photo League and focus on documenting our city and volunteering our collective group photography skills to work with local non-profits. Our motto is "Changing the world one picture at a time." New members are welcome to join: http://www.philadelphiaphotoleague.com
I am a recent volunteer on the Membership Committee at The Philadelphia Photo Arts Center, and have also taught photography classes in their beautiful new classroom space. PPAC is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization devoted to the study, practice, and appreciation of photography in the Philadelphia region. The organization fulfills this mission by offering educational programs, photographic exhibitions, lectures by practicing artists, and affordable access to high-end digital equipment for the creation of photographs. PPAC is a resource for both practicing artists as well as individuals interested in learning about all aspects of contemporary photography. PPAC provides needed technical services and instruction and promotes the relationships and connections that will lead to a more vibrant photography community. http://www.philaphotoarts.org
