Hi, I'm Tara.
I get really excited when people let me dissect their travel itineraries and seat selections on planes - it's my version of astrology. When I'm not shooting I'm probably at a yoga class, or exploring Maine which has become a home away from home for me. Those blueberries, y'all. My real home is in Brooklyn - I've been there for 13 years! That's right, I did it.
My addiction to travel is fueled by my curiosity about people and the many different ways we live and interact with our environment. I love it when I'm able to mix my passion for social/environmental impact projects with my travels for more commercial work. But mostly, I just love what I do and I want to do more of it.
