Meet Mandy

When I was 16 years old I walked into a camera store in Colorado and asked for a job. Despite getting my college degree in Chinese Languages and moving to China, I never left photography – or perhaps photography never left me. Little did I know that would be just the beginning of a 17 year career in photography stores. After spending the last 10 years at Precision Camera & Video in Austin, my wanderlust became unavoidable and I left to pursue freelance photography, live on the road out of my teardrop camper, and maybe learn a thing or two about life.

I have an insatiable desire to explore and document the beauty all around us through photography. Everyday we experience moments – whether secluded in nature or adventuring with friends – I strive to be present in these moments, to be grateful for each one. My camera allows me to create an artistic vision of these experiences. Through my photography and my journey I hope to inspire each person I meet.
