Goal: capture as much tire smoke as possible while still keeping those sponsor logos visible...objective achieved!

Vaughn Gitten Jr. showing off his drifting skills at Nitto Tire's Auto Enthusiast Day presented by DrivingLine, at Angel Stadium last weekend. His personal hashtag is #professionalfunhaver  and I can see why :)

My first time shooting drift. I got a really great set of shots but wow is it crazy trying to shoot through the tire smoke and still get a clean shot of the cars in action. Not to mention my wrist was killing me from supporting my 70-200 2.8 while constantly zooming in and out as the cars drifted around the track. I was shooting from an elevated position so the entire track was visible to me. I think I caught a chunk of tire in an eye, my one eye has been bright red since the shoot haha! #hazardsofthejob

Happy #SignSunday  everyone! +Jetski and I are looking forward to seeing what you have to share with us today

If you live in SoCal and get a chance to eat at the Mess Hall Canteen food truck, I can highly recommend the Drunken Sailor mac and cheese...it has lobster, snow crab, bacon and masago...so good!

Happy #SignSunday  everyone and thanks for joining me and +Jetski as we celebrate signs from around the world. Can't wait to see what you have to share with us this week. :)

Stormy weather in SoCal this weekend (finally!) gave me some great cloudy skies for the event I was shooting yesterday. Grabbed this shot of the awesome Long Beach Navy Memorial while I was there

Having some fun with license plate spotting! Do you have a creative vanity plate?

Whether it’s a trail name, their Jeep’s name or something to reflect their overall passion, off-roaders love to show creativity with vanity plates.

+Marc Briggs Friends of Last Chance Canyon are reporting that the Holly Ash Cleaner Mine has been fenced off with barbed wire. No one is sure who put it up yet. Looks like only the "cave" section is fenced off from what I see in the photos.  That was such a fun spot to photograph the Milky Way :(

Cuteness overload spotted at the  #KMCWheels  Summer Jeep Bash! I really admire the creative effort that some people put into their vehicle display at a car show.

I don't think people even realize how dangerous that one is +Joseph D 949. The one that really gets me out here are the sky lanterns...sure they look pretty, but how stupid can people be? Maybe they don't understand the laws of gravity!

Story
Tagline
photographer/jeeper/outdoor enthusiast/girlgeek/MBA with an inquisitive mind, a thirst for adventure and a passion for life
Introduction
I am a photographer and journalist in beautiful Southern California. 
I live on the coast and I prefer to shoot in the desert. 
I shoot documentary images and I create art.
I like to explore places where few people venture.
I don't like to make iconic images of iconic locations.
I like the sun in my face and the wind in my hair, 
and whether I'm viewing the most incredible beauty
or facing difficult challenges in the most harsh terrain
I hope to convey that through my work...the feel of the sun, 
the smell of the air, the taste of the breeze and my love
of the earth.


When I'm not making art I'm shooting and writing
about Jeeps and the offroad lifestyle.



Want to know more?

I started as an automotive photographer in the gray market. Later I earned an MBA and worked as a corporate executive for a while. I returned to my passions of photography and the outdoors when I moved to California and fell in love with the land.

My work has been used in books, advertisements, corporate publications, and has been published in the NY Times, Orange County Register and newspapers across the globe. My art is collected by enthusiasts around the world. I did the California-based still photography for the Baseball Hall of Fame Critic's Choice award-winning movie The Emerald Diamond.

I am currently a contributor to the automotive enthusiast lifestyle publication DrivingLine and I volunteer my services as a photographer, driver and all-around camp help to 4 Wheel 2 Heal, a 501(c)3 organization that takes disabled vets out on the trail for some fun wheeling and camping.
