Therese Niedbala


Therese has gained an education in photography beginning in film, then transferring to digital. Once in college, she dropped a structured education of photography in order to pursue a degree in marketing and journalism at Columbia College Chicago. She found further photography education in assisting Guggenheim Fellow Melissa Ann Pinney and interning in the Chicago Tribune photo archives.

Her passion for visual story telling has helped her build a clientele of local musicians, clothing and accessory designers. Having a blended education of marketing, journalism and photography allows Therese to translate her client’s visions into real life visual stories. She can also be seen in front of the camera, having modeled in editorials published in Vogue Italia, HUF and Elegant magazines.

Currently, Therese is the editorial lead of Off-Kilter Media.
