Tina began her freelance photography career in 2006 as both a graduate student and photography assistant. While taking improv classes at Second City and the iO Theater, Tina combined her two interests, and quickly became one of Chicago’s top-rated actor headshot photographers. Tina has worked with celebrities such as Saturday Night Live’s Nora Dunn and Les Miserables’ Colin Depaula and is the official photographer for Thorek Hospital. After her first luxury event on a three-story yacht in the Atlantic Highlands she was hooked, and went on to form Gradient Event Photography. Her client base now includes Fortune 500 companies such as Ladies Home Journal, Pearson, and the Ritz-Carlton Residences, reaches to locations across the country and is taking bookings in major cities across the U.S.
