    Biography: I am key photographer and co founder of Digital Magic BigShots. I have been a "shutterbug" all of my life, but it took until 2002 for my interest in photography to merge with the facilities, graphic talent, love and support of J.P. Persitza, owner of Digital Magic BigShots. We consider this business to be truly "ours" as we work as a team on a daily basis to realize our collective vision and to serve our clients' needs.

    I work as a photographer shooting studio and location work for major bike magazines, private individuals, models, calendar production companies. I do freelance work as a photographer, writer and graphic artist for Cycle Source magazine (www.cyclesource.com) . I write a monthly column in Cycle Source and Quick Throttle Magazine called "From Behind the Lens" (which can be found on my site). I also design marketing pieces such as brochures and ads for my photographic clients.

    In addition to my photographic work, Digital Magic, the parent company of BigShots, is in the business of creative, artistic and functional production of signs, displays, vinyl vehicle graphics, point of purchase fixtures, retail decor packages, large format printing and much more. I have a secondary hand in design and production with Digital Magic as J.P. needs me.

    This business for me is the fulfillment of my dreams and talents. I had spent 13 years as a licensed real estate agent, the last 5 of those co-owning a residential new construction contractor. Now I fully realize that I am doing the job that I should have always been doing, what I am good at, and what makes me happy.

    I adore working with models and find that the feeling is often mutual. I like to think that I have an interesting and very "female" perspective on nudity, sexuality, power and pinup. I love to produce a provocative image with sensibility. I like my nudity to be noted as an afterthought and not the primary reason the image catches an eye.
