Paige Ozaroski Haedo


My background...

A 2005 graduate of Temple University, I studied photojournalism and graduated with high honors. During my time at Temple, I competed as a Division 1 All-American gymnast, and this helped start my career primarily photographing sports. I’ve covered the NCAA national championships for ice hockey and gymnastics, the Red Bull Rampage International Extreme Mountain Biking Competition, and almost any Division 1 college sport imaginable. Some early advice I received was, “If you can shoot sports, you can shoot anything.” It’s all about anticipating the moment a fraction of a second before it happens, and that background in sports photography has given me a solid foundation for the wide variety of events I shoot.

Types of photography...

Photojournalism - specializing in news photography, sports, arts & entertainment, and pet/animal photography. My attention to detail and creative perspective help me to create images that tell stories, capture moments, and show subjects from a unique viewpoint.

My vision…

I’ll always photograph the images one would expect from a photojournalist, but beyond that I strive to create images out of the ordinary... the visions people see but don't remember, and the ones so subtle that people might not even notice. If there is a brief "break" in the action, I focus on details and surroundings and try to compose more artistic shots. At times, you might wonder why I’m taking certain photos - a closeup, detail, or something artistic - and it might not be until you see it that you realize why. I'm not a “plain and simple” type of person – I think outside the box when it comes to my vision, art, and goals.
