Hey, 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’ve spent years learning every creative photography technique and grew my portfolio to the point that I began to win awards, sell book covers, prints, calendars and products, receive grant-funding and invitations to write for major publications.

Creative photography made me come alive and I want that for you too so I help photographers express themselves creatively using in-camera and editing techniques. My goal is to start a creative photography movement, of photographers creating beautiful, challenging, interesting things, and I hope you’ll join me to discover how you too, can unlock your potential, step into your power and make your mark on the world.
