ABOUT

Laura Oliverio is photo editor and photographer based in Mount Kisco, N.Y. She just started as an Associate Photo Editor at CNN where she helps the digital team pick images to run in various types of news stories.

Before this, Laura was a Mentee to Adriana Teresa Letorney in The Visura Mentorship Program. In this role, she worked on a project that highlighted success stories of 36 freelance photographers worldwide. It was important to her to not only choose the strongest images but also showcase each photographer’s unique vision.

She graduated from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University in 2021. There she earned a Bachelor’s Degree of Science with a concentration in photography and psychology. For two years, Laura served as President of the National Press Photographers Association (NPPA) SU Chapter and then was Head of Visuals at The Newshouse news outlet where she assigned over 20 photographers to stories that dealt with inequality in Central New York.

In her personal projects, Laura blends documentary with art photography and focuses on themes of family, childhood and psychology. She also has a passion for helping and connecting people, especially those interested in photography. Laura is excited to learn about different projects creative folks may be working on. Please, do not hesitate to reach out. Photo by Zach Krahmer.
