Sharpshooter specializes in product, food and restaurant photography, real estate, portraits, and events. Adam’s philosophy for food photography is “I shoot things to make them look like I’d want to eat them. And then I eat them.”
Sharpshooter Pictures is a boutique film production company in New York City founded by filmmakers Adam Watstein and Jennifer Lyne.
A native New Yorker, Adam Watstein has been behind the camera most of his life. A degree from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts in Film Production set the course for a life dedicated to filmmaking. He co-wrote, produced, directed two independent features, Off the Hook and Loudmouth Soup, and in 2011, he founded Sharpshooter Pictures with Jennifer Lyne. They’ve created over 750 videos to date.
“Our work really is all about telling stories, ” says Adam. “It’s what we love and what we bring to everything we do at Sharpshooter Pictures—whether it’s one of our feature films, TV or web videos, or still photography.”
“People have become more visually literate.” Jennifer says. “But instead of trying to surprise them with complex visuals, we grab them by showing authentic, dramatic work.”
Jennifer Lyne grew up in Richmond, Virginia. At 23, she sold her horses and her Jeep to move to Manhattan’s East Village. She has worked with such noted filmmakers and producers as Todd Solondz, Ted Hope, Scott Rudin, Sydney Pollack, and Martin Scorsese. She and Adam co-wrote and produced Off the Hook and Loudmouth Soup. In addition to co-founding and running Sharpshooter Pictures with Adam, she is also an author. Her first novel, Catch Rider was published to much acclaim by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt in 2013, and she is currently at work on her second novel. Jennifer is a member of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, Local 817.
We’re storytellers; writers, filmmakers, photographers.
