Speaker Statement: Hi, I’m Laura Barisonzi, a New York photographer and director who strives to capture natural action and genuine emotion. My style is based on the beauty of real people and natural movement rather than stiff poses. You will find my team on set in constant movement, working to capture fleeting moments and dramatic light with technical precision. I am a nerd for lighting and cameras and am constantly testing and coming up with new technical approaches.
Cycling, running, climbing, swimming, and getting lost abroad help me have the energy to keep the production at full speed for every one of those 14 hour days on set. My passion for locations, gear, casting, retouching, and production means we will put years of experience and planning into every element of your shoot. I studied at Brown University and RISD. I have lived in New York City for the last 15 years.
