Betty Photog – n. Photographer, Cupcake Connoisseur, Model, Art Historian. Formerly known as Beth, Beth Ann, Bethie, but always & professionally Elizabeth Breznay. I am a product of the MySpace and early Facebook generation and am constantly hitting the refresh button. Blogging is my outlet in this multimedia, multitasking, ADD world.
I currently reside in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. I am captivated and thus inspired by the transformation this city has undergone throughout history. I am an active participant in documenting the here, now, then, and ever of Wilkes-Barre. After graduating from Temple University in 2008, I stayed in Philadelphia for three additional years. Most of the work on this site is from those 7 years.

Get to know me, be my friend, be my photographer. I won’t talk cameras, I won’t talk equipment. I only talk about life, my work, myself, and whatever you want to talk about.
Betty Ann Cupcake – n. Betty Photog’s alter ego; the Betty in front of the camera. In my 25 short years, I have established myself as a model in the Philadelphia area. Reaching a retiring age, I have deviated from standard fashion modeling to conceptual photography. If there are any ideas you would like to explore with me, have me model for, or assist in the execution of, please do not hesitate to contact me. I see beauty in literally everything. Years of modeling can numb one’s mind to the reality that it’s not just about lights, studios, and rail-thin models. It’s time to expand our thinking and conquer new horizons. I do, however, find it fun to dress up, receive VIP treatment, and rock some stilettos in front of a camera.
Over all, I strive to promote an open forum in which we can all participate in photo-discourse. Too many people are shy to speak their minds on art, their own work and the work of others. I would love to hear feedback on what you think of my work and ideas, good or bad. It is a constant challenge and pleasure for me to work with input from my contemporaries.
