Self-portrait in Portland, OR home. 6.7.2019

Kathleen is a self-taught photographer from Portland, OR. Born in New Jersey, Kathleen was happy to have a camera in her hand even as a youngster. In 2017, she picked up photography more seriously, eager to find an creative outlet while living in Washington, D.C. 

Kathleen specializes in nature and landscape photography. She also enjoys artistic portraiture and self-portraits. She seeks bold colors and contrast, and equally loves black and white photos. 

She uses a Panasonic Lumix G85 digital mirrorless camera and also experiments with a Minolta film camera.
