I am a self-taught photographer for the past 10 yrs.
Fed up being a Professional Make-up artist for almost 15 yrs., I decided that I wanted to be the boss, for a change!!
So I went to Samy's Camera in Los Angeles, asked the clerk,** which camera does "Annie Leibovitz" use? He pointed to the Mamiya 645... My first love and that's how it all began.
I am the FOUNDer of the groups....FUNKY CRAZY STUFF....aREa pHifTy oNe and... Don'T Judge Me bY My iCoN!!
**please ask for me for permission when interested in the use of any of my copyrighted images
you will have to deal with "him" (Boogeyman) and his owner**

"A wonderful journey into a mind different from others, yet familiar to us all.
Dana, I am a fan of your ability to create amazing imagery, with an eye for the things most of us wish we could capture.
You have a heart full of good vibrations,an artists artist.
You are on my list of 100 people I want to meet before I kick the bucket.

"What more can possibly be written about Dana..a seriously great photographer and a flickr rockstar if there ever was one. There is so much to learn by studying her photography - the lighting, exposure, and composition are always great.
But even though we think it's really all about the pictures, it really isn't. Behind all the great images is a person you just have to know. Dana is funny, sweet, witty, charming, and a whole lotta sexy.
More s.p.'s please!
Rock on Dana. Rock on."

"What would flickr be without Boogeyman and Dana. Love your work and your imagination! Big hugs to that kid and cat!"

"Dana is so nice, she takes amazing photos, and she's gorgeous. It's not fair. I guess if someone was going to be lucky enough to get all that, she's one of the deserving ones. I love her pictures of Boogeyman the most. Damn, he's cute!!! ;)"

"Beauty, talent and a keen eye for amazing photography. She's got it all."
September 5th, 2007
"Hell, what can I say! She's got a camera larger than most cars in europe. She's got a wit sharper than Sid Vicious. And she has a cutting edge, modern day renaissance quality in her photography. Personally, I think that means, "she points and shoots".... What she catches when that happens though......THAT is what makes her different..... She's as good with word-play as she is with that photo finger of hers......so beware!.....LMAO"

"I made a mistake - originally I thought Foto-A was brilliant. But - in reality - she's much cooler than that. And gorgeous into the bargain - I've seen the evidence first hand.
Let Foto-A enrich your life. And She will, you know.
Edits - I come back and revisit this testimonial because I want to add additional praise and acclaim because the more I see of the body of work the more I enjoy and admire it. It's the expression of fabulously vibrant imagination after all."

"fotoattack is a flickr user who i've just discovered and has entertained me with the sheer quality and vision of her photos more than almost any other flickr user so far. well impressed!"
June 30th, 2006
"Dana is absolutely adorable. I really adore her. Her photography is wacky, weird, moving...it's always energetic, elegant and so....well, Dana! She is difficult to put into words and her photos already speak volumes. There can be no doubt that she is one wondrously gifted human being.
Love ya, girl!"

"In a group's pool, there was this picture of a doll standing out amongst the dozens of pics, its eyes staring at me...
"All I want is a compliment" was what the doll said.
"You darling doll, Love you for introducing me to Dana's photostream!!!! Dana is so talented, so full of spunk, so differently creative, so friendly, so witty, has such a adorable attitude, is such a lovely doting mom of a darling little boy... I cant stop gushing about how wonderful she is!!!!
I just love her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ""

"Fotoattack is a joy! What can I say that others have not already said. Her work is so amazing it hurts (in a good way, ok?). She's my newest and best flickr friend and writes me emails with very disconcerting phrases in the subject line. I think her work is like she is bright and alive and crackling with life and fun. If you look up Zany-Cool-Bright-Energetic in the dictionary, there is a photo of her dead fairy...I'm not kidding.
So do yourself a favor and slither through her images and feel the sparks. It's a beautiful thing.
And a little note to the artist... T.G.A. hehehehe"

"If you really want to know about FotoAttack, TRUST ME ON THIS; take every word she has put in her profile as absolute gospel. She means it and it shows with everything she does. You'll laugh, you'll get a few "WOW, THATS COOL!" and you'll wanna see more-and she'll deliver the goods. Eclectic, smart and wonderfully imaginative work."
