Portrait: Donna  RappTHE SNAPSHOT of a LIFE - Donna (Desi) Rapp

I received my first Kodak Brownie in elementary school and immediately took a picture of my cat Dusty. I still have that photo. While photography has been my hobby ever since, it turned into a real passion when I received a digital camera and new lenses!

Having grown up in California, attended university in L.A. and spent a short time in the film industry, I eventually moved to Canada. My full time career was as a communications professional for arts organizations, media outlets, non-profit agencies and an energy company. In all my jobs, my images have been used for for brochures, newsletters, reports and websites. As well, I am an active volunteer supporting the environment, the arts, youth mentoring, literacy and AIDS care groups. My passion for photography reflects my other passions for travel and wilderness trekking.

As of 2016, I have a new venture called Rappture-customizing home decor, accessories and gifts with my own photos. Visit www.zazzle.com/rappture and check out my amazing artist-customized products...everyday works of art. I'm designing under my nickname - Desi

Not bad for a middle aged chick!
