Why Hire Killer Joe Photographer?

Hi my name is Joe Ligammari.  I am a accomplished Lifestyle Photographer with over 30 years experience photographing adults, children, parents, families, models, pets, occasions and events.

Brooklyn Lifestyle Photographer - Joe LigammariWhen hiring me I will always be your lifestyle photographer for the shoot. There will not be a substitute photographer showing up for your photo session, as happens with many other photography studios.

We are a full service Photography Studio providing pre-planning, production and post production services. I am sure we can meet all your photographic requirements on time, within your budget and at a quality you and I will be proud of.  I look forward to discussing your ideas for a photo shoot.

What to Expect on a Lifestyle Photography Shoot

I will collaborate with you to decide on where, what and how you would like the photo shoot to progress. I like to capture you and your family in natural poses; hugging, walking together, laughing.  Shooting outdoors is one his most creative locations. It is nice to have the outside sunshine and even a slight cloud covering as a light source. An evening hour about 90 minutes prior to sunset provides beautiful lighting.  When a lifestyle is shot indoors, then of course anytime of day is good.


There is no dress code!

Ideally you want to coordinate your clothing.  When more than one person is in the shoot, matching clothing is desirable although that is up to you.  Whatever you choose to wear should show who you are! Clothing will have a real impact on the shoot.  So it’s worth spending some time selecting clothes before the shoot. I recommend having at least of two outfits for the shoot. Avoid logos, signs and other types of branding that will date your portraits.

Family Portraits

For family portraits I recommend that everyone wear similar clothing styles in similar tones. This helps to coordinate the aesthetic and also reduces any distraction that ‘clashing’ clothing may cause.You’ll have these pictures forever, looking your best but still being comfortable will ensure your pictures will undoubtedly showcase you! If you want to switch clothes midway through the shoot, that is no problem.

After the Shoot

After the Shoot

For a full photography session,  I will go through all the images and narrow my favorites down to approximately 40 to 60 photographs. The photographs will be custom edited for color and composition.  Next I will post around 40 to 50 photographs on a private Killer Joe Photography page within three to five days of our shoot. This will allow only you and persons with a password to view the images.

Killer Joe Photography lifestyle and portrait photography sessions, can result in more than 30 quality “keeper” photographs. You are able to request photographs to be converted from color to black and white if you’d like!

Killer Joe Lifestyle Photographer Style

I offer unique New York City locations and a Studio located in Brooklyn. I approach photographing people in the style called “lifestyle portraiture” which are candid and semi-candid photographs of people in casual settings. Ideas of where to shoot are urban areas, parks, unique public spaces and of course your home or place of business.

Locations for Your Photo Shoot

If there is a place that is special to you, that’s great. I will make it work! My fully equipped Portrait Studio is available for your use and is included in all packages.  I enjoys shooting in the New York City area. It provides me a unique combination of cityscapes, parks, new and old buildings, waterfronts and abandoned areas. I am very passionate about photographing people in their environment in New York City.
