Hi, I'm Hayley!

For much of my life I didn’t believe I was creative until one day I picked up a camera and found a way to ignite the creativity I never thought I had.

I spent years attempting every creative technique I could find because using photography as an art form is wildly more exciting for me than just documenting a scene. As my portfolio grew I began to win awards, sell book covers, prints, and products, receive grant-funding, invitations to write for major publications, had my tutorials used in school curriculum, and went viral.

But my true passion is empowering other photographers to more be creative with their cameras. Creative photography gave my life meaning and I want that for you too so I'm building a community of photographers creating inspiring, challenging, interesting images and I hope you’ll join us to unlock your creativity and unleash your potential.
