Greetings from Portland, Oregon

Hi! I’m Elayna, a documentary photographer, writer and digital producer working with media outlets, mission-driven organizations and individuals to create authentic and engaging multimedia stories.

My curiosity about people and cultures has led to more than two decades of in-depth travel and project work – from Tanzania to Turkey to Haiti to Bolivia. Through these experiences, I’ve sharpened my observation, listening and communication skills to connect with all kinds of people, from rural dairy farmers in Kenya to senior banking executives in the U.S.

I am available for assignments and collaborations in Portland, Oregon — and beyond.

Let’s chat!
