After 17 years of working in a conventional photography career, Mandy realized that the American Dream was not for her. She quit her job, bought a teardrop camper, and headed for the open road. For the last 6 years she has been teaching landscape photography workshops and guiding backpacking trips. Mandy is a brand ambassador for several products that she uses, believes in, and shares values with their brands. She is regularly published both online and in print, and often interviews on podcasts, television, and at live events.
