I am Joe Ligammari (aka Joe New York), a professional Photographer and Artist, living in Brooklyn NY. My career spans over 25 years. I started shooting black and white film and developing fine art prints in my parents basement/darkroom. At the time, I worked with a 35mm Nikon FE2 and medium format Hasselblad 500C/M. Today I shoot digital format, using Nikon, Fujifilm medium format and Elinchrom studio lighting equipment. I still take out the Hasselblad to shoot film.
Another passion of mine is Street Photography. Many of my street photography images are posted to Instagram.
I have studied Photography at the School of Visual Arts and Cooper Union in New York City.
In addition, I am a NY State Professional Engineer, with degrees in Chemical Engineering and Economics from New York University School of Engineering.
Today, my fine art photography is being displayed in homes and buildings throughout the United States.
My passion is people, landscape and cityscape photography. I strive to create images that evoke wonder, amusement, compassion, joy, mystery or the unthinkable. One that sheds new light on our world, raises questions about our world, or creates a new world. My images encompass “straight ahead” and artistic photography.
I also designed and maintain this website and KillerJoePhotograhy.com a Lifestyle, Family and Portrait Photography studio located in Bay Ridge Brooklyn, New York.
