Sharon Schuur is a NYC-based editorial and portrait photographer. Sharon brings a unique perspective to her work; her background as an art director. For more than twenty years, she has hired and directed photographers at well-known publications and non-profit organizations in New York and London.
Sharon prides herself on staying current with trends in editorial photography and uses her talents as a past designer to predict what will be popular in the future. Her style is simple and classic based upon the use of natural lighting. Her favorite part of being a photographer is meeting new people and learning their stories. She enjoys the opportunity to capture what makes them unique, whether that be through a series of images or one still photograph, in the studio or on location.
When she’s not making photographs, you’ll find her reading a book, cooking, listening to music, or spending time with her husband and two teenagers. Her favorite movie has always been Harold and Maude.
