I am a calm, engaging and athletic international Documentary and Life Event photographer currently based in Tucson, Arizona. I am able to "walk in many worlds" both private and public, documenting it authentically without my personal interference or influence. My work involves short and long-term assignments, select donated service, and personal projects. My self-publications include Bus Stop Dreams, The Cacophony of Engagement, and Tour de l'Abitibi (2014 and 2015). I am also a professional social worker with over 25 years experience. This skill set gives me a unique doorway in quickly establishing rapport with clients and strangers alike. I am available for short or long term assignments anywhere in the world (i.e., private or public, corporate or non-profit).
Member: National Press Photographers Association, DART Society Inductee (now Ochberg), Getty Images Freelance photographer.
My work has been published in dozens of web and print-format newspapers and magazines including, The Art of Dying, Desert Harvestors, Tour de l'Abitibi Desjardins, Visit Tucson, Tucson Weekly, Zocolo Magazine, Living Streets Alliance, Tailwinds Magazines, AZ Daily Star, Tucson Moves, Taos News, Bike Life of Tucson.
In 2015, I had the good fortune to be one of a dozen students in Mary Ellen Mark's last week-long workshop a month before she passed.
"The iconic images that Kathleen Dreier captures with her camera lenses highlight so many memorable moments of our events. Close ups of youth, group shots, action photos document important elements of our peacemaking activities and nonviolence workshops. Her pictures immediately transport you back to those events and allow people to relive their experiences. Sharing these pictures on Facebook and in photo albums brings alive the very essence of our peace-building work. Thanks to Kathleen for her professional and inspired photography!" --Ann Yellott, Co-Founder Nonviolence Legacy Project and Annual Youth and Peace Conference, Youth Programs Affiliated with the Culture of Peace Alliance
