My name is Cherilyn Beckles and I am a photographer/videographer in the New York Area.
Ever since I was a child I was engaging with media in some sense, whether I was taking photos on my mother’s old digital camera or making videos of my friends on Microsoft Movie Maker, I knew that I wanted to create and produce content.
During my time in undergrad at SUNY Oswego I studied Broadcast Journalism which strengthened my knowledge of journalism and increased my confidence on camera but I still felt like I was missing something. I then went to Syracuse University in the graduate program where I studied Visual Communications at Newhouse. There I felt like I finally found my place in the world and it was behind the camera, capturing moments and creating beautiful portraits and videos.
Since then I have worked at Island Photography in Long Island as a photo editor, the New York Film Academy as an Edit Lab Assistant and have taken photos for news publications and small magazines.
