Miranda Alam is a freelance photographer based in Las Vegas. She moved to Las Vegas from the Bay Area in 2012 with every intention of becoming a pastry chef, but made an unexpected pivot into journalism and photography, graduating in May 2016 from UNLV with a degree in Journalism and a minor in Integrated Marketing Communications.
She regularly works on assignment for the Las Vegas Weekly and the Las Vegas Sun, as well as for clients such as NASCAR, the NBA and WNBA, Polo America, the Mountain West Conference, Las Vegas Lights FC, the Las Vegas News Bureau and the San Francisco Chronicle.
Miranda is also a freelance photo editor for Getty Images, where she has worked on events including the Vanity Fair Oscar Party, the Netflix Golden Globes after party, Billboard Awards, Life is Beautiful arts & music festival, iHeartradio Music Festival, Steven Tyler’s 3rd Annual Grammy Viewing Party, Def Jam Grammy party, Island Records Pre-Grammy party, CES, Soul Train Awards, the Latin Grammy Awards, and the American Country Music Awards among others.
Prior to freelancing, Miranda worked as the photo archivist at the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Nevada's largest daily newspaper, the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
Miranda enjoys shooting street photography in her free time, and can't say no to a good concert.
