About / Info

Hi, I’m Amber! I’m a photographer, graphic designer, and videographer specializing in live music.

My company name, Green Room One, is a tribute to the entertainment industry.

I’m based in Grand Rapids, MI but am available for any traveling opportunities. I love to travel!

I have a background in marketing and that definitely has a big effect on the work I do for brands, organizations, musicians, artists etc. But ironically I value happiness over money every day of my life. Doing work simply for a paycheck is not my idea of a satisfying life.

I’m definitely a people person and I always want everyone around me to feel as comfortable/happy as possible, which also translates to my work. I love to have fun and be silly! I’m also quite spontaneous; sometimes I feel like my brain is in constant idea mode and I love to seize opportunities for creativity and inspiration when they arise!

I don’t like to rush things, so I will never claim to be the fastest at anything I do; but I care deeply about everything I do – from taking portraits to photographing live shows to creating videos for businesses – I tend to be a perfectionist (which is also one of my downfalls)!

Some fun facts:
• I tour with the band Fitz & The Tantrums (I quit my full time marketing job to do this!)
• I love exploring creepy and/or abandoned places
• I lived in San Diego from 2010-2012
•I love to have movement in my photos
• I’m a Harry Potter nerd
• I love mac & cheese

Feel free to check out my work using the menu options, and if you like my style, you may email me.

Thanks for stopping by!
