Born in New York City, raised in Southern California, I then jettisoned back to NY for an in-depth thespian training -- culminating happily into the teaching of the craft. I was a grand performer at a young age and a lover of the arts in many of its canvased forms.
I fell in wonder with photography early in high-school, playing with chemicals in darkrooms, lying on floors with seas of proof sheets. The love never stopped.
I'm a seeker of truth, of the humanity inside it all, and the underlying energy that binds us all and makes us seek the mirror that we call entertainment/art, but which is ultimately our teaching tool to the meaning of it all.
I've taught acting -- mainly the Eric Morris System (LA) -- at the Bova Actors Studio (NYC), under my mentor and master teacher Anthony Vincent Bova, and use what I've learned in every aspect of my photography, specifically my headshot and portraiture work.
Driven by a wicked sense of humor, the love of mystery, and an insatiable appetite for learning, I am Doren Sorell, and if anything on my site resonates with you, please feel free to contact me.
