Through perseverance and hustle, success is possible. Ask Bethany “Bee” Fischer.
Emerging from the male dominated world of hip-hop culture she’s been able to ascend above barriers through a tenacious work ethic and passion for both hip hop and photography.
Bee’s determination has been displayed throughout her personal and professional journey.
In 2006, she overcame a battle with cancer. Quickly coming to the realization that we are not promised tomorrow and driven by a desire to explore, she decided it was time for the world to see itself through her eyes. This moment in time launched her pursuit of becoming a professional photographer.
Bee paid dues as a beginning photographer within Salt Lake City Utah’s hip-hop scene. She was able to breakthrough and make a name for herself when she when given the opportunity to shoot hip-hop artists Little Brother and Evidence (of Dilated Peoples). These two shoots allowed her work to be featured nationally on BET.com, Urb.com, The Find Magazine,SLUG Magazine, Basement Magazine. In addition, it also opened the door for her to photograph the likes of Little Brother, Evidence, Jarobi White, DJ Numark, Diamond D, Hieroglyphics, Living Legends, Strong Arm Steady, KronDon, Fashawn, Dag Savage Raven Sorvino and many more.
