Who am I?
I'm a storyteller. I'm an artist. I'm a veteran. I'm a mother. I'm a woman. I'm a discoverer. None of these are in any particular order.
What is My Background?
I've had some amazing experiences thanks to photography. My previous clientele list includes several local publications, shooting and writing human interest stories and events.
- Santan Sun newspaper (under the original owners)
- Go Gilbert! magazine (discontinued)
- So Scottsdale magazine
- Uptown magazine
- Scottsdale Health magazine
I am the house photographer for the Chandler Center for the Arts since 2011, shooting the meet and greets with the talent as well as the talent during their performances. I've also shot in other venues, such as the Jobing Arena, Talking Stick Casino and Resort, and Mesa Art Center. Overall, my celebrity performance portfolio is extensive, and it's been an amazing journey to photograph legends such as BB King, Wayne Newton, Debbie Reynolds, Cesar Millan, Vicki Lawrence, and Lily Tomlin.
What do I use?
Some people fixate on the gear a photographer uses. I get it. Today's access to photography equipment is easier than ever, and some mistakenly associate expensive gear with talent and success. I come from the school of thought that a true visionary can create art with the cheapest cameras. Some of my best shots were made with a Kodak EasyShare 1012IS. But just in case you really want to know, I shoot with a Canon 5D Mark III as my primary, my Canon 50D as my secondary, and I have a few film cameras that I play with.
