"This Is Me!"

If you know, you know.

Hey! My name is Riza-Lea Mendenhall and I'm a photographer based out of Washington State. I grew up in North Carolina and that's where I fell in love with photography and firearms. 

The very first camera I bought was a Canon 70D but shortly sold it. A couple years later, I bought a Nikon D610 and have slowly created a portfolio of my work. I currently use a Sony and I don't regret switching to a mirrorless camera.

Throughout my life, I've never touched a gun or even thought about the 2nd amendment until I met my boyfriend. Just like a small percentage of people, I immediately fell in love with training, understanding how to properly use a firearm, and how to protect myself with one. ​

Random Facts: 

I absolutely love pandas and puppies. I prefer the snow over the ocean. I'm not a terrible skier but you'd think I'm great (or not) because I was a ski instructor. My favorite food will always probably be mac & cheese. I wear kids shoes. I played basketball throughout my life. I like to play video games (currently playing PC games).
