Lucille Khornak

Lucille Khornak is the portrait specialist, recognized internationally for her work photographing prestigious families. She is the owner of two Hamptons galleries, and is the author of three books in photography and fashion. With her many years of experience behind and in front of the camera, Lucille has proven to be the unequivocal choice when families are looking for quality photography and portraiture.

Lucille is quite familiar with the world of commercial and celebrity photography, having worked with the likes of Karl Lagerfeld, Givenchy, Giorgio Armani, Joan Rivers, and Andy Warhol to name a few. After the release of her first book, Fashion:2001, Lucille rose to prominence as a photographer in New York and internationally. She went on to complete a tour of 80 radio shows, interview for several magazines and television shows including Good Morning America, the Today Show, and Oprah, and see her work reach as far as a museum exhibition in Lisbon, Portugal.

With a career spanning over 30 years, time has yet to change the whimsical nature of Lucille Khornak. She has travelled to many countries, including Venezuela, the Island of Mauritius, Australia, New Zealand, and South America. Lucille continues to shoot destination projects for private clients. She has an affinity with children that is immediately visible in her work. She finds their energetic spirits to be positively unique. Driven by the constant quest to capture the true character and personality of each and every one of her clients, Lucille believes that her clients deserve only the best, and she is committed to making sure their portraits reflect their finest artistic quality.

Recently, Lucille was chosen by Rolls Royce as the top luxury photographer for her work with some of the most prominent families. Over the years she has participated in many Hampton Designer Showhouses, showcasing family photographs as artwork. Her goal is to document family heritage and produce works of fine art. Her photographs serve as a decorative focal point in the homes and offices of her clients in New York, Palm Beach, Beverly Hills, London, Dubai and Paris.
