Lisa Brotz | Photo-Journalism

I wish I could say that I am an adventurous photo-journalist and love nothing more than traveling the world for exotic shots and exciting tales of far off places, but I can't. Truly, I am a homebody at heart and am happiest tucked away on my eight acre hobby farm spending time with my family, which includes an assorted menagerie of pets. Although you will find images from various destinations here, my favorite place to shoot is close to home and with the camera I have on me, usually my iPhone. I also shoot with a Nikon D90 and am always working to hone my skills as a photo-journalist, to tell a story and notice the small details, the unusual and off-beat.

While a picture can tell a thousand words, I believe we must also be careful custodians of the English language. As a certified copy editor and professional communications coordinator, I spend my days writing, proofreading and doing layout work - a job I love immensely.

When not capturing images or scribbling notes in my journal, I enjoy reading, movies, antiquing, cooking, hiking the dogs, ballroom dancing, and yoga.
