The Face Behind the Lens

Deborah Libby: Chief Storyteller

Deborah got her first SLR camera as a teenager – an old hand-me-down Minolta that her dad picked up in Vietnam – and has been documenting life ever since. She spent 15 years in corporate America before embarking down a new path of making media full time. Her two primary loves are shooting and editing.

Deborah received her BFA in Graphic Design from Central Washington University and a MFA in Documentary Media from Northwestern University. She currently lives in Chicago.
