Sarah Arnoff Yeoman is an independent editorial and documentary photographer based in Portland, Ore., and Salt Lake City, Utah.
After graduating in linguistics from the University of Utah, I became a linguist and media content producer for a nonprofit working with Native American tribes throughout the West before transitioning to freelance photography.
Having worked closely with tribes for the better part of a decade to create language materials and photo essays, I continue to focus on under-exposed stories in Indigenous communities around the world. It is extremely important to me to produce Native-led narratives that belie stereotypes and stray from non-Native-centered points of view.
As a member of the National Press Photographers Association and an associate member of the Native American Journalists Association, I also take on assignments on environmental and rural issues, rugged and off-the-beaten-path travel, and creative food. Corporate, NGO, and nonprofit commissions are always welcome. Clients include Portland Mercury, Bitterroot Magazine, SaltLakeCityWeekly, Devour, Volunteers of America, the University of Utah, Vector Media and others.
Find me on Blink and Visura, or in the real world backpacking the expanses of Western wilderness.
