A Cincinnati native, Bethany came to Chicago to carve out her place in the photo industry. Her experience in studio, lifestyle, and editorial photography mixed with a deep technical understanding and an obsessive eye for light allows Bethany to create exciting and refreshing images. Her sets are consistently filled with laughter and new ideas. If you're skeptical, a quick glance convinces even the biggest skeptic. When Bethany isn't behind the camera, she's behind the camera, so to speak. If you can drag her away from a lens long enough, she can be seen riding bikes, hiking mountains, or camping in forests. And to be honest, she usually still has her camera in hand. When she isn't adventuring and when her arm can no longer hold a camera, she enjoys the finer things in life, like, bad television, and her cats - Merlin and Maki.

Bethany is available for editorial and commercial work. To inquire about hiring or want to view a full resume please email bethany.puterbaugh@gmail.com.
