Miranda Penn Turin is a freelance photographer and director who has been specializing in portraiture, music, fashion and beauty for over thirty years. She was born in Boston, Massachusetts and splits her time between New York and LA - she shoots all over the world and is grateful to have the best crew on the planet.
Miranda's intention when she shoots is to reveal both the intimate and the epic. She still shoots film whenever she can, loves her 30 year old Nikon FE2 and her Calumet 4x5. She has, however, embraced the digital and loves the formidable reciprocity and range of this generation of cameras. Her clients include Coty, Max Factor, Sony, Universal, Bloomingdales, Fox, Warner Bros. Records, Converse, Conde Nast, the Four Seasons, Chase, MTV and many others. She is currently working with Voices4Freedom, a humanitarian organization committed to abolishing human trafficking all over the world. Her images of the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu provide the cover art for The Book of Joy, which spent 37 weeks on the New York Times top fifteen bestseller list. A writer as well, she just completed her first novel.
Her advice on visiting her hometown: eat lobster and don’t try to do the accent. You can follow her on Instagram at @MIRANDAPENNTURIN
