Judging an All Female Photographers Competition in Bosnia and Herzegovina

I am so honored and excited to be the judge of an incredible photo competition taking place amongst female music photographers in Bosnia and Herzegovina. As a female photographer who started off when I was quiet young, I was always so excited when I would see another female photographer out there in such a predominately male driven environment. Creating an environment that is also supportive for women and girls is so important to me. One of the national TV stations in Bosnia and Herzegovina did an article about my participation in the competition, which you can see below.

Paul Simon Tribute for the Skirball Cultural Center

I made some photos for the Skirball Cultural Center of the Paul Simon tribute that was hosted by Sean Watkins and put on by The Bluegrass Situation. It was a really beautiful evening with wonderful music. Every Summer I look forward to making photos for the Skirball Cultural Center's Sunset Concert series. I loved having the opportunity to make these intimate music photos that show what a wonderful place the Skirball Center is to experience live music.
