“An independent lens with a creative perspective on your life story.” We’re not like other photographers. We don’t have a studio, we don’t have big fancy lights, and we’re anything but pre-packaged and off-the-shelf. Instead, we sneak quietly into the background of your life and capture a series of distinct, intimate moments that, collectively, tell a story that is uniquely YOU–who you are, what’s important to you, and where you are in your life. Our images will inspire you, make you laugh and cry, and sometimes just make you say, “Wow.” Tipping Point founder Liz Farina Markel co-edited the 2009 ChiCross Photo Collective photo book.
