Theresa’s clients include builders, interior designers, architects, landscape architects, marketing directors, restaurants, chefs, hotels, realtors, and website designers.

As a Commercial Photographer specializing in architectural, advertising and design photography, Theresa’s unique compositional style, technical skill, use of creative supplemental lighting, and advanced post-processing techniques result in striking imagery characterized by crisp and vibrant color, clean lines, and strong graphic elements. Through her commitment to the creative art of photography, Theresa also enjoys teaching photography classes to college students and hobbyists alike, and is currently a teacher at Allan Hancock College.

Theresa is also an intrepid photojournalist and world traveler. She recently returned from a summer trek to Southeast Asia, with a host of images which she is currently exhibiting in her one-woman show, “Myanmar: Moments in Life”. The show, which is on display in the Ann Foxworthy Gallery on the Allan Hancock College campus, depicts the faces, colors and life of the Burmese people and culture. The exhibit is on display through Friday, September 29, 2017.
