Praise for The Naked Zinester

"A very interesting documentary exhibiting a fantastic photographer who sees women for what they are and captures their imperfections and shows them just how beautiful they really are."
                                                                                             - Amy Priest, Way Too Indie
"It’s delightful to see the pair take great joy in celebrating a subject that too often lacks the right level of frivolity. Here’s to rolling around on the floor and smiling more.It’s fun. Goofy, sexy fun."
                                                                                                    - Scott Beggs, Film School Rejects
“The documentary is not only interesting for people who are into photography, but for everyone who is into style and beauty.”
                                                                                                    - Robert Helbig, NBHAP
