My name is Debra Butler. I was born in Southern California and grew up in Huntington Beach. I spent many summers at the beach, but most of my free time as a child was spent training as a gymnast. I competed on UCLA’s gymnastic team and graduated from UCLA School of Medicine to begin my career as a physician in diagnostic radiology.

I developed a passion for photography in 2006 on a trip to Sweden. Photography became my creative outlet and way of relaxing. I am a self-taught and my interests include nature, sports, and portraits.
Capturing the wonder of nature, the depth of someone’s smile, or the passion in their eyes brings me joy.
