Kathleen Dreier

Documentary and Life Event Photographer, Kathleen Dreier Photography

Tucson , Arizona , United States


I am a high energy international Documentary and Life Event photographer with a photo-journalistic style currently based in Tucson, Arizona. I have been called a "stealth photographer" of any conceivable event (i.e., family, music, sports, birth/death, community happenings, news) and with this orientation, I am able to "walk in many worlds" both private and public, documenting it authentically and without my personal interference or influence. My work involves short and long-term paid assignments, select donated photography service as well as personal projects, currently including Bus Stop Dreams (first publication), The Cacophony of Engagement, and Portraits of People Working. I am also a professional social worker with 25 years experience and this skill set gives me a unique doorway to photographically working with clients and strangers alike.


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, Tour de l'Abitibi Desjardins, Tucson Visits, Tucson Weekly, Zocolo Magazine, Living Streets Alliance, Tailwinds Magazines, AZ Daily Star, Tucson Moves, Taos News, Bike Life of Tucson. My first publication, Bus Stop Dreams, was released in December 2014 and my portrait work has been selected for the 2015 The Big Picture in Denver, Colorado.

I am available for short or long term assignments anywhere in the world.
Private or public. Corporate or non-profit.

"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 & Peace Conference, Youth Programs Affiliated with the Culture of Peace Alliance
