Photography for Denise is an extension of who she is, finding it meditative, creative, challenging, and rewarding from the associated travel through the visualization of a composition to the post processing and production of the final image. She has said, “I can honestly say that my passion is to capture everything I see. I enjoy the natural world, with endless landscapes, waterscapes, and animal wonders, but am just as likely to be found roaming the city shooting street scenes, people, and “urban-cityscapes.”

One aspect of photography that Denise enjoys the most is sharing the experience with friends: traveling with, shooting with, comparing with friends keeps her motivated and excited about photography, and constantly learning new things. She believes these experiences are inspirational and they can elevate each participant’s photography to the next level. For more visit her website.

Denise is also a founding member of Road Runner Photography Tours
