Jorge Madrigal began his photo career as an adolescent in Costa Rica. Taken under the wing of a renowned photo studio in San Jose, he honed his skills in studio portraiture at an early age.
He ran a successful photo retouching studio on lower 5th Avenue for many years, perfecting the art of painting directly onto transparencies, correcting unavoidable photography mishaps for the ads of lots of big companies … this was before Photoshop! He uses that deftness now to hand-tint black and white images, giving depth and an artist’s touch to wedding and baby images, something his customers really love.
Jorge relocated to Nyack, and found the perfect place to establish Madrigal Studio. Here, he dedicates himself to wedding, event, portrait , and commercial photography.
