Mary Beth Kratsas is an award winning photographer and artist with over 25 years of experience behind the lens. Her Studio, MBK Photography, is located in Monroeville, PA but she loves to travel and is always willing to go the extra mile (quite literally) to facilitate her clients needs. During the past two years Mary Beth has traveled to LA to photograph for the Cinema City International Film Festival with Suzanne Delaurentis and Ed McMahon. There she photographed on the Red carpet and all of their social events and award ceremonies benefitting children and soilder burn victims from the Iraqi war. In 2010 she even traveled all the way to the Middle East to photograph for Jordan's board of tourism. The phenomenal images she returned with will be used for billboards and will hang in a gallery in Washington D.C.
Mary Beth began her photo education by studying at both The Ivy School of Professional Art and The Art Institute of Pittsburgh, where she aquired the principals of photography and graduated with an Associates Degree in Commercial Art. Before realizing her lifelong dream and officially opening her studio in 2004, Mary Beth worked in the entertainment industry as a casting assistant for Nancy Mosser Casting and a talent agent for the Pittsburgh based agency The Talent Group. Today, in addition to running her business, she continues to educate herself in the latest skills and photographic trends by attending classes and seminars at the Triangle Institute of Professional Photography studying with masters of photography and fellow members of the Professional Photographers of America and the National Association of Photoshop Professionals.
