Hello! I'm Shira.
18 years ago, my dad gave me his film camera and since that day, I don't remember a time I didn't have a camera in my hands. The best part about taking photographs is meeting new people and capturing key moments in their lives. Weddings, graduations, events, portrait sessions - you name it, I want to be there.
I'm a wedding and portrait photographer currently based in the New York City area, but willing to travel. I'm also a video/photo journalist at the Staten Island Advance. I've completed my Master's degree coursework in Photojournalism at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University and received my B.S. in Photography also from Newhouse. So... I studied a lot of photography (and I loved it!).
Let's collaborate! I want to be there to tell your story.
