I have a love for "all things creative."
I have been a freelance photographer since the 1980s, photographing everything from special events including festivals, art shows and concerts to family portraits, business head shots and non-traditional weddings. I also love hiking in various parts of the country, capturing breathtaking landscapes and wildlife along the way.
I'm also an author ("Idiot's Guide to Unlocking Your Creativity"), freelance writer and a creativity coach (www.creativecaboose.com). I love helping others uncover, recover and discover their own creative talents, whether it's photography, visual arts, jewelry, gourmet cooking or crafts — the possibilities are endless! I often combine my writing with my photography as a photojournalist and with other creative projects.
My photos have been featured in juried art shows, individual and group exhibits, and have been honored with awards.
When I'm not shooting, writing, coaching or playing music, I'm engaged in running my own public relations firm, The PR Czar® Inc., established in 1997 (www.prczar.com.) For an overview of my services, please visit www.doreenporeba.com.
What can I say? I love my life and life itself!
