Hi! My name is Amy. My undergraduate degree is in Theater, with an emphasis on acting but I did everything there is to do in a theater! I worked as an actress in New York and LA for several years before deciding to go back to school. I got my Masters degree in Art History from the University of Illinois, Chicago. I was a graduate assistant during my time there helping my professors teach and grade papers/exams, etc. for their undergraduate classes. I currently work as a freelance photographer and have owned my own business for 5 years. I am very passionate about what I do and love to share what I've learned! I look forward to working with you!

Art History

I have a Masters Degree in Art History with a concentration in the History of Photography, although I am well versed in all areas of Art History. Although now I am a full time photography I still have a strong affinity for Art History! I was able to pursue this with curatorial internships and both The Museum of Contemporary Art and the Terra Museum. I also spent 4 years working in the archives at the Art Institute of Chicago. As with my passion for photography, I would love the opportunity to help navigate students through the history of art!

Photography

I am a full time photographer in Chicago. I mainly shoot events, sports and food but have been freelancing in all aspects of photography for the past 7 years. I also have experience in portrait photography. I work for several different companies - mainly Jody Garland Design and Photography and HR Imaging Partners. I shoot with Canon equipment but also know the basics of Nikon. I love what I do! I would love the opportunity to share my knowledge with people wanting to learn a craft I love so much!
