Biography

Constantly on the go with assignments, Chaz is a photographer for Visual and Audio Services. She loves that her job takes to her new ideas, places, and people every week. She graduated with a photojournalism degree from IU’s School of Journalism in 2013, where she gained invaluable experience working in student media and fell in love with IU and Bloomington. Chaz also works at Pictura Gallery, which showcases fine arts photography. On the side, she focuses on portraiture photography—the true love of her life. She seeks a perfect balance of artistic and journalistic qualities in her work.

If she’s not doing a photo project, she’s taking care of her many plants or reading up on current events. She loves traveling, music, movies, and art. If she could live in a film noir, she would. Chaz is always looking for inspiration and if you meet her, she’s probably going to want to take your portrait!

Visuals are so vital in life; I’m grateful to work in photography because I love the universal emotions an image can create.
