About JaNae

Untitled photo

I think photography brings people together, encourages people to explore new spaces and places, and it allows people to document those experiences together.

I started photographing because I thought images might be able to tell us things about the world that our eyes can't on their own.  I love documenting places, architecture, family, love, and memorable times with good people. 

While I live and work in Chicago, I am a Kansas City native and forever a KC BBQ enthusiast. I teach film and digital Photography at The Art School at DePaul University. In addition to freelancing commercial photography, I make art videos exploring dead malls, and I write and perform original pop music.

I would love to meet you! Let's work together.
