Hi! I’m Alissa Nichole, the person behind #alissashoots. I am a New York City-based creative. In addition to photography, I have a background in web and graphic (digital) design, as well as fashion. I’m a lifelong artist… starting with getting chosen to attend a special art class at Pratt Institute when I was in elementary school, to winning numerous art contests and even starting my own handcrafted jewelry business.
#alissashoots started off as a hashtag on Instagram to showcase all of the photos I had been taking. At some point, the lightbulb went on, and I knew that it would ultimately be better to have a space of my own where I could showcase my work, goals and services.
My goal, whether doing fashion styling for a client, making a new piece of jewelry or photographing a few looks for a fellow fashion blogger is to “capture the cool.” I’m inspired by dope fashion, interesting cities and delicious food.
Welcome to my portfolio! (Also, I use a Canon EOS Rebel T6.)
