First Place Winner, Professional
Calzatti honed her chops in the slums of Beverly Hills photographing a
galaxy of urban stars for the likes of VIBE, THE SOURCE, and NEWSWEEK.
The latter magazine further recognized her work, submitting an image of
Snoop Doggy Dogg cradling his newborn boy in the annual Alfred Eisenstaedt
Awards as one of the best photographs to appear within its pages.
Natasha’s youth oriented work led to bold lifestyle
campaigns for STARTER sports apparel and GIRLS SCOUTS OF AMERICA and stills
commissioned for WORLDCOM’s “Generation D” television
spots, and in 2004, Women in Photography International bestowed First

Natasha capped 2004 by organizing the exhibition

an invitation by the EICTV-International School of Cinema and Television
(Havana Province) to conduct a series of lectures and join a reunion of
the cast and crew of this seminal Cuban/Russian co-production.
