Liron Amsellem, the shutterbug in chief of Verona's Photography, captures photojournalistic, candid, and posed photos for families seeking keepsakes of their children and working actors and models in need of striking headshots. For the two-hour shoot, Liron meets lens lovers at any location in Manhattan, preferably outdoors to take advantage of natural lighting, unique architectural backdrops, and low-flying superheroes. This winter, as Liron snaps up to 500 shots, families can frolic amid the holiday lights that twinkle along avenues and boulevards, or individuals can slip between fluttering snowflakes along snow-paneled park paths. Those who choose the event option gain a private memory collector, with Liron leaving hosts to host as she, camera at hand, weaves among guests at birthday parties, baby showers, bar mitzvahs, or July-o-ween celebrations.
After the shoot, editing software retouches the 20 or 40 best images by smoothing uneven colors and cropping to remove extraneous friends. All images are uploaded to a private online gallery, where clients can view and download their high-resolution digital shots.
Liron Amsellem, photographer and former VP of the PVA NY Professional Photography Association, wears many creative hats—this artistic powerhouse is also an interior designer, jeweler, and stylist. She walked away from a promising architecture career in Dallas and into New York’s bustling streets, where she continues to embrace the freedom that her photography career affords her.
At Verona’s Photography, the shutterbug-in-chief captures photojournalistic, candid, and posed shots of families, models, and actors, aiming her lens at every stolen moment and flashing smile she can find. She illustrates the grace and movement of dance as easily as she preserves the memory of happy couples, food and products, and high fashion. When she isn’t coordinating on-site engagement and baby shoots, Amsellem can be found at weddings and events across the city, documenting festivities and attempts to rig corporate bingo games on camera.
