More about the lead photographer
Tammy, owner and photographer at tak-ful.com, has been traveling the world photographing people for over 15 years. She is from a small Mennonite town, called Hartville, Ohio, where she recalls a horse and buggy tying up to the local bank while watching the fireworks when she was young. She has also lived in London, England, Chicago, Illinois, Denver, Colorado, Lausanne, Switzerland and Houston, Texas. And because of her experience living and traveling to so many different cities, she also dabbles in French and German.
She enjoys the outdoors and likes to stay active. She can be found bike riding on long paths, walking in parks, sailing in Newport, and even swinging from a trapeze in Colorado.
But photo Journalism always remains the highlight of her travels including Europe, Central America, Canada, the Virgin Islands, Australia, and the Middle East. What’s next? Most likely the Mediterranean, Africa and possibly S.E. Asia.
Taking after her grandfather, and his love for photography, she keeps a 1941 photo of him taking a picture of his reflection on her studio desk, and her website. The photo reminds her of the many beautiful images and home movies he created of his wife and 8 children, and remains an inspiration to her as she shoots all over the world.
