Rebecca is a New York-based international nature and nonprofit photographer.
Today Rebecca is launching a new nature photography venture called Photographic Green Spaces™. Bringing nature into urban centers.
This also launches her photography career after working at the top of her field as a creative principal in photo editorial for more than 15 years. Rebecca has been traveling the world, quietly photographing nature and other cultures, and, as a public service, partnering with award-winning nonprofits in developing countries. She has worked with UNICEF Jordan and India, IRC Jordan, CARE Brazil, The Grameen Foundation East Africa and St. Luke Haiti, for whom she is also a Volunteer Ambassador. This work has been published in Newsweek, and Rebecca has been exhibited in Italy multiple times, including the city of Lecce's Department of Culture's festival for International Women's Day.
Rebecca started a post production and editorial company in New York City in 2000 called Zet Digital.
She works with the biggest brands and celebrity names in music, film, publishing and advertising, like Beyonce, and Pepsi. Projects include fortune 100 companies, a Nobel Laureate, and countless Oscar-winning actors and Grammy-winning musicians.
Over a billion people globally have seen her creative work.
Rebecca has traveled to almost 40 countries to see this earth, and to experience human nature in various cultures.
Born in Germany to a German mother and an American father getting his MD in Germany, and then moving to America at four, ultimately to a town of 800 people in rural America, Rebecca was exposed to a diverse, international life at the start. She grew up in Michigan, has lived in Los Angeles and San Francisco, and is based in Brooklyn, NY. She spends over a month abroad each year, traveling, collaborating with nonprofits and capturing nature in photographs.
Along with her creative pursuits, from 2010 - 2016 Rebecca also worked as a professionally trained personal development coach.
Rebecca has had a lifelong propensity for science and psychology, coming from a lineage of five physicians in three generations. Educated at the acclaimed Coaches Training Institute, Rebecca had a private coach practice, she's coached people from over 35 nations, she worked with the United Nations globally, collaborated with the Dalai Lama Fellows, and spent a year as a partner and staff development coach at a tech startup called Human Condition Global.
From inner city youth to ivy-league university global change-makers, Rebecca has inspired and mentored youth since 2007 via youth organizations and global leadership summits. She has been a speaker at New York University and was a keynote at Northwestern University's Global Engagement Summit.
