Cliff Lipson is presently Senior Staff Photographer at CBS Television in Los Angeles where he has been creating key art advertising and publicity images for CBS Entertainment since July of 1993.

During his CBS tenure, he has been entrusted with the task of photographing major celebrities from the world of film, television and the theatre. His subjects have included the likes of Jodie Foster, Farrah Fawcett, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Lopez, Jon Stewart, Mary Tyler Moore and Sidney Poitier. Over the years many Oscar, Emmy and Tony Award winners have had the pleasure of being placed before Cliff’s lens. In the coming months, a link will be provided to a CBS site to showcase Cliff's significant photographic contribution to the network.

Prior to CBS, he freelanced for HBO, SHOWTIME, TNT and feature films including BLUE SKY starring Jessica Lange and Tommy Lee Jones, and the Dennis Hopper directed THE HOT SPOT with Don Johnson, Virginia Madsen and Jennifer Connelly.

Cliff's first camera was a Kowa 35mm with a fixed 55mm lens which he purchased in 1968 to capture images as he travelled the U.S. working as an actor in a touring company of FIDDLER ON THE ROOF. After a successful and acclaimed career on the stage, he "re-invented" himself, beginning his photographic career in 1985, studying under Lester Lefkowitz at the International Center of Photography in NYC and sharing studio space in the famed Carnegie Hall building with the late Ray Solowinski.
