Hi! I'm Tara. I was raised at the end of a long, dirt road in Vermont where I could be found drinking mint tea from straws made out of chives or toting around one of our many family bunnies. When I was 17, my dad gave me the same camera my photography idol used in the streets of Paris, which has traveled around the world with me ever since.
After graduating from Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, CA, I headed back east where my sarcasm and preferential treatment of winter weather would be better appreciated. My work takes me to some of the most remote corners of the Earth, and those are the places you will see the biggest smile on my face. Let's go there together?
