I studied photojournalism at the University of Texas at Austin (hook 'em!), headed to London right after graduation to learn how to make tea and run errands, and then landed in San Francisco at the beginning of the first dot-com boom. As a producer and photo editor at SF Gate.com, one of the early leaders in online journalism, I was responsible for sourcing, assigning and editing visual content to enhance the online storytelling experience.
I continued on to photo editing in New York City at magazines and photo agencies, producing breaking news and long-form photo essays with Corbis’ global team of photojournalists. I worked closely with photographers to hone their vision and bring clarity to their projects, as well as pitching their stories to domestic and international clients.
I launched JasmineDeFoore.com in Austin in 2010 to work with photographers and publications on a project basis. Since then, I’ve focused on photo editing and production for photographers, corporations, PR firms, and non-profits. I truly love being a consultant, especially the unique mix of projects I get to work on.
