We have known and worked with Syd for the better part of a decade. She lends drive and a sharp eye to her work, but contrasts them in equal measure with the levity of her easy-going vibe. She’s got a knack for honing in on the energy of a performance and catching it in the perfect, split-second frame, in film and video alike. She’s also [thankfully] very capable when it comes to wrangling and corralling us easily-distracted and otherwise directionless musicians. Most importantly however, more so than even her very broad capabilities as a photographer, is Syd’s dedication to building relationships. She’s a fast friend, a thoughtful communicator, and anyone lucky enough to work with her is immediately the benefactor of not only her generous talents but her even more generous heart.
