BY BRIDGET HOUCHINS
Bridget began her career as a professional photographer in 2011 after studying photography since 2006. She graduated with a BFA in Photography from the Academy of Art University, San Francisco in 2014, has her FAA Part 107 drone license, and 16 years of photo editing experience. Her path as a professional took her from doing pet portraits to products and headshots, before falling in love with architectural photography.
Bridget spent over two years as a full-time photographer for one of the world’s biggest tech companies for property management software, where she was the second top-ranking photographer in the company across the country. Her favorite part of the job was being flown around the United States to photograph and do 3D walkthroughs of luxury high-rise apartments with modern amenities.
Bridget is currently the full-time Photography Manager of a world wide corporation based out of San Diego County. She works with their product managers and domestic and international marketing departments on product launches, catalog photography, advertising, trade show displays, corporate headshots, events, architectural twilight photos of products on location, teaching photography workshops, doing commercial shoots with models on location, hiring contracted photographers in other locations, and more.
She is a self-published author and travel writer, having explored twenty-three countries, including riding a flea market bike from Vienna to Budapest, hiking 300 miles on an attempted thru-hike of the Pacific Crest Trail, sailing from San Diego to San Jose del Cabo, and hiking the Trans Catalina Trail five times.
