Sharon Schuur is a NYC based editorial and portrait photographer. A graduate of The Rhode Island School of Design, with a love for the evolving narrative, she has always carried both a camera and a pencil. For more than twenty years, she worked as an Art Director for magazines, newspapers and non-profit organizations in New York and London. Although still inspired by the ad world, it’s behind the lens where you’ll find her the most these days.
Her favorite aspect of being a photographer is meeting new people and learning about 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 their own personal space.
When she’s not busy making photographs, you’ll find her reading a good book, cooking, spending time with her husband and two children, or listening to music with lyrics like those that were written by The Stanley Brothers. Her favorite movie has always been Harold and Maude.
