Sharon is a photographer based in New York City and South Egremont, a small town in the Berkshire Mountains of Massachusetts. Her mother is a painter, and visual arts have been a centerpiece of her life from the time she could hold a crayon – and later, a Brownie camera.

Sharon studied photojournalism at Boston University. She worked her way through school in a darkroom, developing and printing pictures for professional photographers, but has traded the world of red lights and chemicals for a computer.

She spent many years as a financial journalist and then in the corporate world advising global companies and their management teams on crisis communications and management of sensitive issues.

Sharon has now given herself the freedom to reawaken her passion for photography and travel. She believes that a photograph can be a work of art, but like an impressionist painting, it also needs to tell a story about the moment in time the artist chose to capture.
