Wanna know more about Throwing Light? We’re pretty normal folks with a couple of cameras, a good bit of experience, and a passion for creativity.
Leah is the smart one. She has a great business mind, and enjoys consulting with non-profits and other organizations.

So let’s just say that her experience and creativity benefits Throwing Light and each client we work with.

Her graduate thesis research on HIV/AIDS took Drew and her to South Africa for four months in 2006.
