Photography Connecting Community


Whether your goal is to enhance your business branding, update your staff’s professional portraits, document your one- or multi-day corporate event, or document an ongoing project, I create images that provide you with digital assets to grow your business’ profitability, as well as in person and online presence.

Through authentic compelling photography, your clients  visually experience the genuine expression, intention, and service of your company. Small/large businesses and non-profit agencies retain Kathleen Dreier Photography because they know that I am thorough and reliable; that there is ease and clarity when working with me; and, the fact that I create truthful images of their staff and organization.

My service packages are customized to your company’s needs for the given event or project. Generally speaking, I offer flat rate packages (hourly, 1/2 day, full day, multi-day, or project) that include all of the following services: the actual hours of photography, my post production work on the digital assets for best presentation, two sets of the digital assets (one sized for print media and the second set sized for web/social media) and licensing. I have a team of trusted videographers available, coordinating and incorporating their services when my clients require it.

I serve small and large businesses, entrepreneurs, non-profit organizations, and corporations. I am available for travel anywhere in the United States and abroad. Please contact me directly at 520-245-6711 to discuss your company’s photography needs and upcoming events. Or you can reach me through leaving a message on my Contact page.

I am a Visit Tucson Partner, a Certified Tourism Ambassador, a member of Local First Arizona, and a long-time member  of the National Press Photographers Association.

I provide each prospective business client my resume and growing list of testimonials. When you and I speak about your upcoming event, conference or business branding session, I will show you albums of full event coverage so you will have a direct sense of the thorough quality and quantity of digital assets you will receive.

- James F. Palka, 2011 Pulitzer Prize nominated event photographer

I consider Kathleen Dreier to be one of the finest event photographers in the whole Tucson area. She was the first person who came to mind when Getty Images asked if I knew another photographer in town with whom to share a commercial assignment.

- Thomas Barr, Vice President of Business Development, Local First Arizona

Kathleen is an incredible photographer to work with. She was punctual, professional, and delivered incredibly high-quality photos for our annual conference. We were impressed by her commitment to edit her first day of photos immediately so we could provide feedback for the 2nd day of our conference. While we didn’t have much to tell her to change as the photos were impressive and just what we needed, we appreciated her hard work and commitment to our event. I highly recommend working with Kathleen as she brings the top level of professionalism to your business needs.

- Catherine Shaw, Marketing Director, Northstar Travel Group

Working with Kathleen to capture our 3-day corporate event was a delight. Kathleen took the time to understand our event format, mission and goals. She was professional, timely and communicative, and of course returned quality images! We will certainly be working with her again.

- Tyler Bunhus, Business Development Resources, INC

Kathleen did an amazing job helping capture our company conference in Tucson! She was very communicative throughout the entire process and put myself and our team at ease. We came away from the event with amazing photo content to help promote our future events! I would highly recommend working with Kathleen as we look forward to working with her again in the future.

- Michael Rozin, Owner and Chief Instructor, Krav Maga Minnesota

The training we do at Krav Maga Minnesota is designed to teach people the skills they need to defend themselves in real life situations. It is intense and empowering. As the owner of Krav Maga Minnesota, I wanted images that conveyed the spirit of what we do and how we do it, and Kathleen's photos truly captured it all. She took the time to observe and understand our approach, and the resulting images tell a story that we couldn't tell in words alone. We are really grateful for Kathleen's expertise and vision.

- Marco Colbert, Race Director Tucson Bicycle Classic

I'm certainly glad we engaged Kathleen Dreier to photograph the third stage of the 2022 Tucson Bicycle Classic!  Her gallery of photos was wonderful and truly captured the spirit of the event as we requested her to do.  Kathleen's photos depicted bike racers and their families and friends having fun - which is exactly what our event was all about.  Kathleen was great to work with and satisfied the "shot list" that we gave to her.  She delivered the photos promptly after the event, and I know that she spent a lot of time curating the photos after the event.  The proof is in the pudding, I think.  Kathleen's photos of the TBC have already been viewed over 125,000 times!  We are looking forward to working with Kathleen again in 2023!

- Lindsay Dreyer, OSA International INC

We were in urgent need of a photographer as ours had canceled at the last minute. We found Kathleen’s number through an acquaintance. She squeezed our event, which started the evening we called her, after having already worked a whole day at a previously booked shoot. With very little guidance, Kathleen went to work. She captured a wonderful variety of images of our conference, including some amazing photo-journalistic shots of the attendees, speakers, and ambiance. We’ll definitely be reaching out for her photography skills again!

- The Wayland Group

Kathleen Dreier was an absolute pleasure to work with! She captured so many memories for us during our corporate event; it was like reliving the event over moment by moment when scrolling through the photos. She did not miss an opportunity to capture our team and was an absolute joy to work with. We look forward to when we are able to collaborate with her again.

- James Owen, Vice-President, Edison Electric Institute

Kathleen’s energy and professionalism made our jobs easier on-site. She is a very talented photographer who engaged well with our group, culminating in some great photos that we have shared our members.

- Lindsay Dreyer, OSA International, Inc.

- Jill Lorenzini, Tucson Desert Harvesters

Kathleen Dreier is a photographer for the people. She invests her creativity into every project she does to best serve her community and to shed light on issues of importance. I hired Kathleen to photograph my sun-print art for an event and she provided amazing images to support this work. For many years she has photographed Tucson's All Soul's Procession, bringing this iconic event to life with colorful captures and a heartfelt way of seeing people and places. Kathleen is a true collaborator, working closely with other artists and change-makers to uplift her community and spark constructive conversation and thought. I admire women creatives who forge their own path and work hard to make the world a better place. Kathleen is one of them. I highly recommend her photography work.

- Alissa Blanchard, Watermark Retirement Communities

We were lucky enough to have Kathleen photograph our annual summit this year! She is meticulous and friendly and produced everything we asked for in the highest quality! We will work with her again in the future.

- Kylie Walzak, Cyclovia Tucson Event Coordinator, Living Streets Alliance

Kathleen is wonderful to work with. Her rare gift for capturing the emotion and energy of the human spirit makes her work stand out. Kathleen has been one of Cyclovia’s official event photographers since the event started and each year her images tell the beautiful human stories of the day.

- Eileen Wittman McLeod, Executive Director, STEP Student Expedition Program

Kathleen Dreier has been an absolute joy to work with. Her professionalism and clear communication upfront is beautifully paired with her warmth and easy going personality in person. We used her to photograph two events so far for our STEP Scholars and we’ll definitely continue to use her services over and over again. She was able to capture the little moments at our events without ever seeming intrusive and wonderfully managed a huge group for the big moments as well. The photos we received have been super well organized and are stunning. I can’t say enough about her! Tucson is so lucky to have her.

- David Seeber, Marketing Director, Southern Arizona Arts and Cultural Alliance

As Marketing Manager for the Southern Arizona Arts & Cultural Alliance, I hired Kathleen Dreier to photograph our 9th Annual Salsa, Tequila & Taco Challenge. In the past, we have always struggled to get truly incredible photos from this event due to difficult lighting conditions, weather issues, tight pathways & large crowds. Kathleen went above & beyond to ensure we got more than just the usual event photos, she gave us photos that told a story, felt artistic & intentional, while also feeling like they captured a split second moment that few other photographers would’ve seen. As a photographer myself, I truly appreciate the extra time put into framing & editing in particular. I would strongly recommend her for your next event!

- Act One Arizona

Kathleen absolutely knocked it out of the park! She photography a work event for our non-profit organization and the photos are stunning! She was so easy to work with and great at communications! We will work with her again and again!
