History is not simply the study of textual documents, but also non-traditional sources like photographs, buildings, and other examples of material culture. The study of photographs as well as the addition of visual evidence to research and writing can greatly enrich any history projects. I have photographed for marketing departments, websites, various companies, as well as provided imagery to history projects  over the years.
