We are working on a very special online event in May, featuring three award-winning, world & life-changing photographers. While their paths in photography have all been different, they are all connected and share a passion that is near and dear to many of our hearts: Animal Rescue and Conservation. We are in the midst of planning the details for this one-of-a-mind gathering of creative minds, but can share a few details with you. There will be storytelling. We’ll share in laughter, tears, fun and serious moments. Through it all, we’ll explore images, how they came to be, and how this trio came together with Looking Glass on a common mission. More details to follow over the coming weeks. And right now, we’d like to introduce you to these remarkable humans. Below, discover Kristi Odom. Let's just say you can't help but smile and feel gratitude when hanging out with her. And her photography and filmmaking are truly next level.
