Her photographs have graced the covers of Billboard Magazine, Variety, Hollywood Reporter and Paris Mach, and her images have been seen worldwide, in magazines such as Time, Newsweek, W, Elle, Rolling Stone and People

Thompson, Jim Marshall, Muhammad Ali, Kirk Douglas, Elton John, Celine Dion, Britney Spears, Cher, Holly Madison, President Obama, President Clinton, President George W.
