Biography:

Ingrid is a freelance photographer, photo archivist, digital imaging expert, and educator.

Ingrid has also worked in the photography industry in various roles in: product knowledge and research, marketing, photography instruction, and production.

Ingrid has also worked in the museum world with photography and art collections within public and private institutions in digitization, archiving, cataloging and curatorial research. She is interested in the study of visual culture, the history of photography, as well as current trends in digital imaging and as a personal goal, hopes to create engaging digital content on these topics in the near future.

Ingrid is looking forward to going beyond photography to discover new opportunities in digital media.
