My Work

Through web development, photography and storytelling, I strive to use my skills to help others and captivate audiences.

Business

I started my business, Abigail Turner Productions, to specialize in dance photography because it combines two of my passions. I am now the resident photographer for Campaneria Ballet School and provide photos available for purchase of dancers both on stage and in-studio.

Web Development

My passion for communication and advertising led me to learn as much as I could about web design. Whether it's my own business or my employers', I truly enjoy crafting useful layouts from scratch. My work pushes me to learn more about this field in every way I can.

Advertising

After an internship in digital marketing, I chose to pursue a degree in advertising for its elements of creativity, research and ellaborate planning. I love creating visual advertisements for multiple platforms as you always get to start with a blank canvas and a goal in mind.

Abigail was an absolute rock star jumping into everything Estee Lauder immediately from completing weekly reports to account audits to presenting channel overviews to the wider team. She was constantly curious about Paid Search and also took the time to meet with several members of the NY office to even further learn about everything digital marketing.

Additionally, she participated in a group project highlighting Audiences (what they are, how we’ve utilized them, and what’s coming in the future) with the other NY interns allowing for her to grow her capabilities in group work, researching for a presentation, and how to create deck. She was composed and knowledgeable while presenting to the entire NY office showcasing just how much she had accomplished this summer!

It is with confidence and enthusiasm that I recommend Abigail Turner’s photography. Through my work with Ms. Turner, I have always found her to be professional in her interactions with staff, dancers, and parents. When scheduled for in-studio photo sessions, Abigail arrives and sets up in a timely manner and honors the schedule set by the staff. She greets parents and puts young dancers at ease. The parents have been quite pleased with the quality of the photos taken by Abigail and the reasonableness of the prices charged for images.

Abigail also serves as the photographer for our live performances. Her knowledge of dance enables her to select stunning action shots that impress dancers, parents, and the artistic director of the studio. Abigail familiarizes herself with the dancers and dances prior to the performance so she is prepared to capture the best each dancer has to offer. Abigail offers final products that match or exceed those of photographers with many years of experience.

Abigail is a multi-talented digital storyteller whose work has enhanced our department’s online presence. She has produced multimedia content for our top-ranked physical therapy graduate program. The quality of her work and ability to work assiduously and independently with our faculty shows confidence and maturity. I know our content strategy is in good hands and I am grateful to call Abigail a colleague.
