    "Impactful Conceptual Images"

    Brooke will share how she creates dark, conceptual images from start to finish, including a breakdown of the ideation and editing processes. It's one thing to have a wild idea, and it's another entirely to translate that idea to something that resonates in the hearts and minds of others. Brooke will share not only how to create these works, but how to take them to the next level of professional presentation and audience reception.

    Brooke's passion is storytelling, and her life is engulfed in it. From creating self-portraits and writing to international adventures and motivational speeches, she wants to live a thousand lives in one. She keeps her curiosity burning to live a truly interesting story.

    Self Description: Intensely anxious, powerful little creative soul.
    Favorite Memory: Flying into the sky before she lost her wings at the age of 5.

    Greatest Achievement: Starting The Light Space, a photography school for refugees Greece and survivors of human trafficking in India and Thailand. 

    Please consider using amazonsmile to support Blossomy, the parent organization for The Light Space.
    Greatest Fear: Whales.
    Favorite BookDune by Frank Herbert.

    I want to help you take your images to the next level, and share my love of photographing with you.

    My goal is to provide you with the tools and instruction you need to create captivating fine art portraits. I’ll teach you my award-winning techniques, which I used to win the Professional Photographers of America Grand Imaging Award (GIA) twice in the “Children Portrait” category, and the overall GIA winner (from over 5,000 entries) in 2021. I’ve been teaching these techniques all over the United States and abroad for the past few years, and now I’m offering them to you.

    As a full-time photographer since 2010, I’ve become a Certified Professional Photographer, and hold the Master Photographer, Master Artist, and Photographic Craftsman degrees all through Professional Photographers of America.

    Finally, like many of you, I’m more than a photographer. I’m a mom of three beautiful children, and a wife to a wonderful husband who encourages me to continue to become more than I already am. I can relate to what parents go through, and hopefully, the tools and lessons I share with you will help you achieve your photographic and artistic goals.
