“The concept for this video is that one person is never insignificant. Instead, one person can evolve into something beyond what is imagined. As the owner of a small photography business, I rely heavily on my network. For this video, I explored the idea of how one particular event three years ago has had a long-term impact on the growth of my business. This has been the case for me over and over again: one person leading me to another and then to another. People are my business and that is ‘no small thing!’” —Beth

  1. I have to say, your photos are gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous. I love the full high contrast colors, the incredible scenes, and how you composed your shots. Stunning, really! I love the haunting black and whites, too. They’re a far cry from what I’ve been seeing lately with photographers choosing all sorts of filters to make the shots better instead of concentrating on composition and lighting. Seriously, I enjoy your rich settings and beautiful photos. Kudos, Beth!

    Beth did an AMAZING job capturing our models for a jewelry shoot for catalog. She has such an amazing eye for “how” to capture the beauty of the product without losing the essence of the model and the brand. Our catalog was beautiful because she was our model photographer, she is excellent!! Do yourself a favor and book her for your next Photoshoot!!
