My Facebook fan page:


Noam was born and raised in Jerusalem, Israel. His passion for photography began at a young age while traveling extensively with his family throughout North America, Europe, and the Middle East, trips that were recorded in many photos and videos. As he grew so did his interest in photography, as well as computer technologies including web design and photo editing.


Noam has photographed concerts given by Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Bon Jovi, Green Day, Alicia Keys, Kelly Clarkson, Beyonce, Leonard Cohen, and many others. In November his photographs of a secret Evanesence show were used by Rolling Stone. In addition to musicians, Noam has photographed many noteworthy individuals ranging from Jerry Seinfeld to Kobe Bryant.

But Noam's true talent is to take a photograph of an unknown person and create a memorable portrait, to take a picture of the ordinary things we see every day and show us how they are remarkable.


Noam's passion is to photograph people. He uses his talents to create memorable portraits of both celebrities and especially, everyday individuals. These photographs capture uncommon aspects of the object being photographed, giving the viewer something unexpected and thought-provoking. Noam takes ordinary things and shows us how they are remarkable.


As an avid basketball fan, Noam naturally gravitated toward photographing sports events, especially games of Maccabi Tel Aviv. His photographs appeared on Maccabi's official website and magazines as well as in leading Israeli, American, and European newspapers and news sites.

During recent years, Noam has photographed such sporting events as the NBA All-Star in Dallas, NBA Finals in Orlando, and European Championships (Final Four games) in Prague, Athens and Madrid.

Noam has photographed the games of the New York Liberty from the WNBA for the past four years.


Growing up in Israel instilled in Noam a need to keep track of the latest breaking news, which led to his interest in photojournalism.

In July 2007, Noam's photos of the steam pipe explosion in NYC were used by CNN.
In January 2009 Noam's photos of the US Airways plane crashing to the Hudson River appeard on Fox News.
Yahoo chose a photo from Noam's coverage of the Ground Zero light beams commemorating 9/11 as one of the top ten photos of 2007.

    "This guy is just an example what magnificent photography is all about. Noam knows how to capture that decisive moment, he has a very good eye for detail, he masters lighting, he has a perfect taste for beauty, he gets close to the subject and he finds many ways to let his photos tell a story.
    At his young age, this guy has a very bright future ahead of him and for sure he is structured to be one of the best photographers in this modern day and age.
    Personally, it is a great honor for me to meet Noam here on Flickr and to have the privilege to actually talk to him twice on the phone.

    Noam, I respect you, I admire you and I amazed by your wonderful works of art.
    You are such an inspiration!"
