Beckerman is one of the few that genuinely loves to make people laugh. She says things other people think, but wouldn't have the balls to say. She is cynical with a twist of sarcasm she instills with every bite of life.
Beckerman specializes in portraits, headshots, and weddings. You can see her work at www.amybeckermanphotography.com. Beckerman is also the Founder and Curator of www.IVEBEENSHOT.net . Currently, she teaches weekend photography classes at Soho Gallery for Digital Art.
