Love it! It was an honor to work alongside all of the other volunteers to "make" portraits for these families. Seeing the video fills my heart with joy. Looking forward to working on Help Portrait next year.

Photogs Recall the Scars of Witnessing Violence ... Instead of Stepping In to Help. It’s a gut-wrenching question that photojournalists are asked again and again: How can one bear witness to violence and hardship without stepping in to help? This story from The Guardian details how several photojournalists feel about this issue... including Donna Ferrato, Ian Berry, and Greg Marinovich.. “I became a photographer and not a person,” says Hampus Lundgren about his work following the deadly 2011 bombings that rocked Oslo, Norway.
What's it like to witness a mob attack, a starving child or the aftermath of a bomb, and take a photograph instead of stopping to help? As two journalists are under fire for recording rather than inte...

Just returned from an amazing workshop at Green Gulch Farm (near Muir Beach, CA). We had the awesome +Harold Davis  as our instructor. Green Gulch Farm in a Zen Center and organic farm (produces all of the veggies for Green's Restaurant in S.F.) so the "all Vegetarian" meals were the best I've ever had. LOVED it!!! I'm just starting to do landscape photography and have found that I love photographing flowers. Still finding that I'm never too old to learn and to appreciate new things. :o)

Just ordered a LenSkirt. Should come in very handy the next time I need to shoot inside a building or from inside looking out. Very cool product.
As hard as I have tried while shooting out hotel windows in Vegas, I have been unable to kill all the reflections from my room on the windows. Turning off all of the lights in the room won’t do the

Story
Tagline
Photographer...specializing in urban landscape, travel and Fine Art Glamour photography. .
Introduction
Beverly specializes in urban landscape, travel, macro and Fine Art Glamour photography. She combines the craft of photography with digital painting to achieve a distinctive look for her images. Prior to living in Walnut Creek, Beverly was a high-tech marketing executive based in Seattle. She has traveled worldwide documenting the culture and traditions of indigenous people primarily in Africa, Asia and Europe.

Much of Beverly's work has been for non-profit organizations such as the American Red Cross Bay Area, Diablo Regional Arts Association and Help Portrait, among others. She uses her talents as a way of giving back to her community and to the world. Her work documenting the progress of the Red Cross' fight to help those living with HIV/AIDS in Kenya was featured internationally in Red Cross literature.

Her travels have made Beverly keenly aware of the disparity of attaining an education for women living in third world countries. She has since become a strong advocate for the rights of women, particularly in regard to education and supports a diverse number of humanitarian groups working in that area.

Beverly's work has been featured in "Studio and Location Lighting Secrets" by Rick Sammon, Walnut Creek Magazine, San Francisco Meeting Planner's Guide and Visitor's Guide,
The American Red Cross Bay Area Annual Report among others.
