Dominic’s career spans over 20 years of commercial and editorial experience. His versatile and wide ranging portfolio encompasses everything from corporate advertising campaigns and commercial pharmaceutical sectors, to food and lifestyle editorial, high fashion and low-fi indie musicians.
The edgy rock and roll imagery of the 60s and 70s were catalytic for Dominic as he pursued his career. Originally from north New Jersey, Dom relocated to Philadelphia to pursue a degree in photography from University of the Arts, where he is both an alumni and former faculty member. After several years of teaching and building a reputation in major markets, Dominic left education to work full time as a professional creative from his historic studio in Fishtown Philadelphia.
Though he continues to open his studio to students of UArts through a mentorship program, Dom works full-time as a commercial photographer focusing mainly on editorial food, athletic lifestyle, and national advertising.
His work has been featured in a variety of national magazines and campaigns, as well as numerous galleries and private collections. Dominic is a member of the Board of Trustees for the PPAC-- the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center; his photography is also a part of the Permanent Collection of The Philadelphia Museum of Art.
Dominic Episcopo's work has been featured in Vanity Fair, Bon Appetite, The Sun UK, Huffington Post, Smithsonian's Food and Think, Gastronomie Magazine, National Geographic Traveler, The Food Network Magazine, The Philadelphia Museum of Art, Gallery 339, Bambi Gallery, Lawrence Miller Gallery in New York, and many other notable publications and venues.
