Through Shauna's vision and dedication, MoodyGrams has amassed over 1.2 million followers. MoodyGrams selects and showcases the work of photographers from all over the world and keeps with Shauna's love of the mysterious in her selections. Shauna considers herself primarily a travel and landscape photographer and loves traveling around the world to see things and meet people that she could have only dreamed about. She is a Sony Ambassador and has had her work featured by Apple among others. We have known Shauna for many years now.
