With over 30 years of experience in photography, including formal education and training as a photojournalist, graphic designer, and creative director, I enjoy helping others learn their craft. I also welcome projects involve social good, education, and building positive communities.
I have experience in nearly all genres of photography and specialize in nature photography and photojournalism. I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Photojournalism from Western Kentucky University, which ranks among the best in the industry.

Consultant, mentor, cheerleader, adviser, problem-solver, trusted ally. I hired Amethel for guidance with my new photography business. Her decades of experience, business acumen, calm, reassuring nature and attention to detail have positively affected not just my business, but my life. As a new business owner, I need to build the foundation and strategy to chart my path to success. Amethel is providing me tools, data points, resources, first-hand experience, and even building my confidence. In addition to helping to paint the big picture, she has taught me effective problem-solving skills for situations I encounter regularly while working with photography clients and stepped me through a logical process for pricing products and services. No matter what type of business you're running, the principles, concepts and tools you will gain in partnering with Amethel will help you advance and grow as an entrepreneur and as a person. She genuinely cares about her clients and goes above and beyond to see them prosper.
