Here’s what you get when you hire Verse Photography.
Verse Photography’s JD Young has worked alongside world-class athletes, high-profile corporate companies, Hollywood A-listers and local community partners. So it makes sense that she’s photographed a vast array of events from professional to youth sports… from community events to corporate soirées… from birthday parties to special occasions.
But in the event that JD doesn’t have her camera in hand, you’ll likely find her knee-deep in some sort of a public relations project, as she’s also a PR professional in the sports industry. JD creates, implements and manages creative programs and events. She writes and edits press releases, media advisories and just about any written copy. And she works hand-in-hand with TV, print, radio and online local, regional and international media outlets to secure coverage for a variety of events.
Before making her way into sports, JD took on marketing, producing and media relations at the Disney-owned ABC Radio Networks’ TalkRadio 790 KABC, legendary classic rock station 95.5 KLOS and the Gracie Allen Award winning, syndicated talk radio program Satellite Sisters.
Then there was her time as a public radio producer for the Tavis Smiley Show, whom TIME Magazine honored Smiley as one of “The World’s 100 Most Influential People.” JD’s notable interview bookings include President Bill Clinton, Senator Edward Kennedy and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, just to name a few.
