Nonprofit Event Photography

My photography helps nonprofits communicate their mission and connect with their communities through meaningful and authentic photographs. I photograph community building activities, educational programming, discussion forums and speaking events, fundraising events and galas, celebrations, award presentations, conferences, behind-the-scenes documentation, and a variety of other special events.
