Betsy Hansen Logo


Betsy Hansen is a professional photographer based out of the New York and Orlando areas. Her work has shown internationally in magazines, ad campaigns, and on billboards for national & international clients such as Cigar Aficionado, Parade Magazine, The Times London, Wall Street Journal, and Family Circle Magazine. Over the past ten years, she has won numerous awards and is currently working on a new art exhibition of personal work.

Her clean commercial style blended with bountiful creativity, ability to adapt and think on her toes makes every shoot successful. She enjoys working with other creative professionals and pulling different professional talents together to make an amazing final product. She is extremely observant with elements on a set, and has the patience of a nun. All of these elements blended together make for an enjoyable & fun experience on set.

"I enjoy working with my clients to create a wonderful final product, and I am always looking forward to a new day when I can pick up my camera and photograph. Thank you to everyone who has been a part of my photographic life so far! Keep smiling." -Betsy
