» Pictures from the Staten Island Advance

The Advance covers as many events as possible, seven days a week on Staten Island. It is impossible to cover every event. It is our goal to be able to visit every organization that requests a photo at least once each year. But to do that, we need complete information and ample notice of the event.
To have a photographer cover your event, send a written request so that it is received at least 10 days in advance of the event to:

Photo Editor
Staten Island Advance
950 Fingerboard Rd.
Staten Island, N.Y. 10305

Be sure to include the date, time and place of the event, and a contact name with a telephone number where someone can be reached between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. You can check to see if a photographer has been assigned by telephoning the City Desk, Extension 2205, the day before the event.

Steve Zaffarano
Photo Editor
718-981-1234 Extension 2279

Directs a staff of photographers, and is responsible for the photo content in the newspaper, as well as photo quality.
