Kathi Mangel

Simi Valley, CA

Kathi Mangel has been a photographer long enough to have made the change from film to digital, but not so long that she’s had the confidence to exhibit her work in a venue such as this until now. Her passion is landscape and nature photography and she especially enjoys searching for all of the beautiful and often unnoticed textures, patterns and details that can be found in the wild. She doesn’t really enjoy photographing people, but has had event photographs published in Wine Spectator Magazine and commercial work printed in 805 Magazine.

Kathi prefers to travel in a pack with other photographers and finds the shared experience enhances her creativity. Her website is called Sexy Chicken Photography as the result of a morning spent sitting in a chicken coop with a few hens in some beautiful light and because nobody EVER remembers how to spell Kathi.

Kathi has a very patient and supportive husband, 3 beautiful daughters, and two sweet rescue terriers who have become her muses.
