Shari Brownie is a native New Yorker who fell in love with photography at a young age. She spent years working nine to five in the world of technology at Sony, spending weekends on free-lance projects, building up her portfolio. Now what was once a hobby has become a new career. However, she will be the first to tell you this career is not work, it is a passion.

I realized something: photography and being a photographer is not about taking the photo of the century, it's about connecting with the subject.
