My Work & Style:



If you've followed my Grrrl Traveler travel blog, my video art or my freelance video work at bluinkinteractive, you may be familiar with the various ways I shoot. I'm a conceptual artist, so my style changes with the medium and the environment.

Aside from traveling or shooting for reality shows, my passion is travel photography and photojournalism.

I appreciate storytelling through documentary, so I aim to shoot the truth in a direct, organic and unadulterated way. I love raw honesty and integrity in people and lifestyles, so you won't find my photographs diluted with overprocessing.  Aside from tweaks of sharpening and color correcting, I do little post-processing to my photographs.   Beauty, I find, is in a person's reality and to add anything upon it to romanticize (other than shooting it), feels somewhat wrong to me.

People fascinate me and are countries in themselves. They are often the subject of my photography: their lifestyles, families, jobs, psychology and culture.  I adore Asia, developing countries and I have a weird attraction to manual laborers (part of me suspects this has to do with the integrity I feel their work portrays).
