I am not just your average photographer...

I am also the chief instigator here!

Watch out, I might just inspire you to do something wild and crazy.

I am a German-born portrait photographer, currently living in El Paso, Texas.

I first fell in love with photography during my early teenage years and that love affair just grew stronger and stronger with time.

At 16, I was part of an internship with an industrial photographer who took me to Photokina, the world's largest trade fair for the photo industry, in Cologne, Germany. I was like a little kid in a candy store and I knew that this was what I wanted to do! Forever!

But I took a few, well many, detours before coming back to my passion in the late 1990's when I was given my first digital camera, a Sony Digital Mavica (yes, back then we still used floppy disks)!

Since then I have upgraded from a Canon 5D Mark III to a 5D Mark IV and now a Canon R6.

In 2006 my family and I moved to El Paso, Texas where I opened up my business. So, believe me I can relate to all my small business and start up clients.


Since that time, I have been actively working / living my passion, photography.

I have been a past President for the

Photography Enthusiasts of El Paso (PEEP)

and still am an active board member for this amazing photo club.

In June of 2019, wrote in an article titled

The 10 Best El Paso Portrait Photographers

the following…

“…Tina Dwyer has some of the most compelling portraits of any photographer on this list. With a background in beauty and fashion, Tina boasts photos that are both highly narrative and ultra-elegant, with much attention paid to perfect lighting, makeup, and natural touchup work in post-production. Her style is unlike the other creatives on this list."


And in Jan 2022 they added me on their


The 12 Best Family Photographers in El Paso

​..."Tina Dwyer is not only one of the best El Paso family photographers, but she is also adept with career headshots and corporate branding. She has an incredible fine-art touch to all her images, too, which definitely helps her work stand out from the crowd. Tina also displays clear intention and a sense of humor in her images, with her subjects often engaging in an activity they love. This is something any busy family can appreciate! Call on her to tailor something creative for you and your brood, especially if you want portraits of your children doing what they love."

Photography is my passion and I feel the happiest behind my camera...where I shoot from the heart.

Every session is a deeply personal conversation between my client and myself.
