An Eye for Life – the Newsletter

I publish a bi-weekly newsletter called ‘An Eye for Life’.

The name comes from an idea that my designer came up with, when I had my site redone in 2016. It is an ode to the concept that as a photographer, I have “an eye for life.” The newsletter evolved as a way for me to share not just my words and photos but also the creative work that I admire by others. I try to focus on women and BIPOC creators. There’s also a section in which I share ways that, together, we can help people plus planet.

An Eye for Life is meant to exist as a separate entity from my blog and portfolio site and yet it is a natural extension of what I do on both. I hope you will find it worth the time to read every other week.
