Hazel loves the creative aspect of photography and post-processing, especially the use of textures, overlays and software to create unique images. She enjoys teaching and sharing her techniques to assist other photographers in realizing their own creative visions. In 2017 she and her husband, Dave, founded the “Creative Photography Conference”. After three successful live events, they have begun holding Virtual Conferences with the first two in 2021 a resounding success.
