SHAUNA INTELISANO
Intelisano Photography is a firm responsible for visual documentation, providing digital images to a variety of clients. I adhere to the highest professional standards as established by my peers.

My love and curiosity for the story behind the person and the place led me to a career in photojournalism. In a time when images are becoming contrived and computer generated, I continue to simply capture life as it unfolds.

Anybody can click a shutter or manipulate an image, but I believe the difference between a good photographer and a great photographer is ideas and approach. I strive to be one of the greats.

After earning a degree in photojournalism and journalism from the University of Georgia I worked for a variety of newspapers in the Southeast and Southwest. My photographic journey led me to Denver where I began my freelance career. Within my first year I worked for Denver's major publications and I continue to cultivate a variety of clients.

I want my freelance career to have as much variety as when I worked for newspapers. I don't want to become stagnate or formulaic. Documenting candid moment keeps me on my toes. Photographing contrived moments also continually challenges me.

I try and always predict moments before they occur, but I love being surprised!

I have been published in: AdBusters, USA Today, 5280 magazine, Denver Post, Rocky Mountain News, Dallas Morning News, Avedadenver.com, Colorado Avid Golfer, Associate Press wire, Killeen Daily Herald, Chattanooga-Times Free Press, Eco Latina, and Athens Magazine Verge magazine will print our (my and writer Sarah Zook) Cuba piece in September 2009. I also have several private clients - families and cooperate.
