Joniene S Swick Event Photographer California, Arizona, Nevada,

Joniene Swick (John-nEEn)

Hi there! I'm Joniene, Professional Event Photographer of "Joniene Was Here" Photography.  

Specialties include: People, Places and Events.  

Special Event Photography

I love celebrating life:  I enjoy capturing candid emotions.  I love interacting  with guests to help them feel comfortable and confident in photos, ultimately creating vivid memories. 

Myer Briggs tells me that I am an ENPF. 

Passions other than capturing light in boxes: Growing Plants, Keeping Pets Alive, Context, Making Jokes. Looking Cool. <-- The last one is probably a joke. 

EVENT and PUBLIC RELATIONS:  My years of experience in being in marketing, lead me to really love events.  I found that I would capture images of events - weddings, weekend getaways, birthday parties, concerts. etc.  I always had my camera in hand. People then would ask me for the photos afterwards.  I loved being able to help share emotions and moments through my lens.  I get to share visually what I feel. 

Background:   My background is in marketing and business development for architecture, engineering, and construction firms (AEC Industry).  I have a Bachelor of Arts and Sciences in Communication from San Diego State University, and a Certificate from the  Career Discovery program in Landscape Architecture from Harvard University.

As a Marketing Manager, I enjoyed having photos for proposals, company website, and  marketing collateral. I found that clear concise photos of my principals speaking helped secure future speaking spots.
