I am Shell Royster, an award winning food, product, stills and travel photographer based in Atlanta and New York City.
I got my first camera in junior high school, and I’ve been hooked ever since. Throughout high school and college, I was the girl always snapping shots of people and places, and later in my formal training at the International Center of Photography in New York, I began to refine my technique and hone my eye.
Today I remain zoomed in on a mission and driven by a passion—the art and magic of transforming experiences into powerful images. I bring more than a decade of professional experience to my editorial and commercial work.
My tenure in the industry also includes serving as a studio manager, producer and editor, giving me a mature sensibility about what makes images stand out. My photographic point of view is driven by my desire to shape light to evoke a sense of emotion in my images.
My range of clients includes national and regional magazines, agencies, and corporate clients ranging from Fortune 500 companies to small, scrappy artisans. I’m always eager to speak with anyone who understands and values the power of the image. If that’s you, let’s talk….
