After years perusing a more traditional education, Elizabeth decided that the best experience she could gain was through travel. She lived and traveled through The Middle East, made a pilgrimage across Europe, and backpacked through Asia. Elizabeth returned to finish school at the Santa Monica City College photo department and is currently in her last semester. Despite most of her educational training having been based around shooting in a studio, her experience traveling has created a love of cultural events, lifestyle, and environmental photography. Elizabeth is also involved teaching Adobe’s editing programs to students privately and works as a freelance assistant for Mattel and a handful of other local photographers.
