Women of Influence

Listening the Creative Voices of Women

Women of Influence is an inspirational look at the talent, drive, and perseverance that forged some remarkable photographic and filmmaking careers.

I teamed up with B&H to spotlight ten leading women who boldly shared what inspired some of their most celebrated work and how they overcame the roadblocks in their paths. Success comes with challenges and these women were honest about the process and self discovery that happened along the way.

This series is brought to you by B&H, with the generous support of Canon and Sony.

  • For 20 years she’s heard it all and never judged me. We’ve fought cancer, fallen in love, cursed love, climbed mountains, dove the sea, discovered ourselves and rescued each other. Now she’s moving a million miles away (actually 2,501). My heart aches and rejoices in the same beat. So my New Year’s resolution is to find a way to visit San Diego in 2018. #lifemoments #documentyourdays #naturallight #clickinmoms #mommylife #bottlesunshine #shuttermoms #thebloomforum #thelifestylecollective #lifewellcaptured  #friendsforever
