Aside from her work in architectural photography, Rachel’s personal passions are fueled by her love for geographic exploration, hosting photographic workshops, and building recognition for photography as collectible fine art. A particularly fun note; in May of 2014 Rachel embarked on a solo photography expedition, which traversed over five states in a span of a year. Covering more than ten thousand miles by road and hiking trails, Rachel’s exploration led her through California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, and Colorado. During her journey, she visited numerous state and national parks while randomly turning down roads that called to her where she created some of her greatest works. She often puts down her camera to take in the beauty and lifescapes she encounters making an effort not to take life for granted.
Rachel's work is enjoyed in both commercial and residential environments.
