Behind the Lens
Tanya is a photographer in the Washington, DC, area. Always a shutterbug, she worked as a portrait photographer for CPI Corp. (former owner and operator of Sears Portrait Studios) before going to law school and subsequently having a career in public policy and law. After re-evaluating her career choices - and wanting an outlet for her creativity - she came full circle with a renewed interest in photography as a vocation. A lover of the arts and a competitive professional-amateur (pro-am) ballroom dancer, creatives are among her favorite subjects to photograph - which is what she does for the Chamber Dance Project, a company of professional artists dedicated to redefining modern ballet in partnership with live music in intimate settings. Her work for the Chamber Dance Project has been published in the upscale DC Modern Luxury magazine.
Tanya is a member of the Professional Photographers of America; the Washington Area Lawyers for the Arts (WALA), an organization that provides legal services and support to the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia creative communities; and is represented by Liquid Talent Agency, a talent agency and casting company in Virginia.
