Fototazo Publication!

Fototazo is a fantastic on-line source of photography.  Featuring photo essays, individual images, and one of my favorites is a series of stories behind individual images---which I got published in yesterday!  I wrote a short essay about the story behind one of my favorite images of two children on a carnival ride in Sarajevo, Bosnia from my Mortar Shells and Cigarettes exhibit.  Read the story at their website.  And while you are there, check out their micro-grant program, fundraising money to "purchase equipment for young, emerging photographers from economically disadvantaged backgrounds from Colombia."

Dodho On-Line Magazine Publication! [Spain]

Check out the on-line photography magazine, Dodho, for a special feature by yours truly.  The magazine is originally from Spain, but publishes photography from all over the world.  They published my series of documentary photography from Sarajevo, Bosnia that I did a few years ago called "Mortar Shells and Cigarettes".  I'm also right on their cover photo for their Facebook page as well, which I found to be fun as well.  So if it's been a while since you've seen some of my work from Bosnia.. go check it out!

The Desert.

Today I am going on an adventure.  I will be going to the Arabian Desert to live with some nomads known as Bedouins, for a while.  I will have some internet, will update the blog some.  There are not a whole lot of guarantees.  Between shooting film and unknown internet and electric situations coming up, the blog may be sparse and full of previous images.  However, I will do what I can do.  Stay tuned. I will be going to some wild places, sleeping in caves, and spending New Years in Istanbul.  Adventures are to be had!

F-Stop Magazine

There's a thing called F-Stop Magazine.  It's an on-line magazine with articles, curated galleries, and featured photographers.  And I'm in their monthly curated gallery with the current topic, "Helping".  Hop on-line, check out the other great works, and enjoy!

"The Water Bearer"

Baikalsk, Russia

2011

Departure Date

Friends, one family member, and the rest of you here in Provo.  I am leaving Utah the first of March to move from the Great Salt Lake to the Great Lakes.  Salt Lake just wasn't big enough for me.  And one lake just wasn't enough.  I need five.  Maybe I'm a little greedy, but these lakes are fresh water and they have a great wind chill.  Chicago, here I come.  At least for now.  Who knows where I will be 6 months from now.  A year from now.  If I'm lucky, still Chicago, if I'm extra lucky, maybe I'll land a sweet job in Eastern Europe.  But for now, I'm going to get as close to Eastern Europe as I can get without going overseas or to Brighton Beach.  I'm moving on the first of March and who knows if and when I will be back.  So, this is a last call.  For all those times you told me you wanted family pictures, to buy a print from me, headshots, whatever you want.  Now is the time to book a photoshoot with me.  Or take me out to lunch.

San Antonio Bound

 

Alright, San Antonio.  If you want some photographs, it is now or never.  Becoming a grown lady come March and moving to Chicago where I will only return to San Antonio if I can afford (or if you pay for my flight) from here on out.  No more being a college girl and convincing Mom and Dad to fly me home for the holidays.  So, it is now or possibly never if you want me to photograph you and your family this Christmas.  I'll be in town December 19, leaving on the morning of the 27th.  So, any of the days in between that you need some images made, let me know and I will be sure to  book some quality time with me and my camera!
