Chinita Tate-Burroughs

I am a photographer who loves combining both my love of photography and music.

About Me

As an avid lover of music, I feel that music and photography are deeply connected. Both are shaped by harmony, rhythm, balance, and a sense of place. I love working with musicians. They provide insight into not only their artistry, but also what it means to love and have passion for what they do. Musicians communicate with their instruments what I attempt to convey with my camera. It is the language of the spirit.
