Bridget is an editorial and portrait photographer from a small town outside of Syracuse, New York. She currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. She graduated from the School of Visual Arts honors program in 2013 with a BFA in Photograph
She began taking photographs in elementary school when she received her dad's old 35mm camera; she taught herself photography through her late father's scribbled notes and old photography manuals. She became obsessed with nostalgia from an early age, inspiring her work, which often deals with the concept of home and where people find it. Captivated by the intimacy that the camera lends her, Bridget allows her subjects to be vulnerable and honest. She has been featured as a selection in American Photography 32 and participated in the Daniel Cooney Fine Art emerging artists auction.
She photographs mostly with her Mamiya RZ 67, Mamiya 7, Nikon F100 35mm, or Canon 5D Mark III.
Bridget is currently based in New York, but is available for assignment anywhere and is willing to travel worldwide.
