Odette Sugerman is a native of two north American countries; born in Birmingham, Alabama and raised on Vancouver Isle, British Columbia. As a young adult she made her way to Los Angeles to pursue her passion for style and fashion. Odette started out as a hair stylist at the Jose Eber Salon in Beverly Hills.
After ten years and a burning hunger for more, Odette studied design and graduated from the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Los Angeles. Her design talents landed her in the design department at Guess Jeans. Driven by her independent ideas about fashion and style, Odette found a new avenue in photography to express her creativity and was soon discovered and mentored by fashion icon, Paul Marciano.
In her downtime, Odette can be found chartering a float plane throughout Vancouver Island and Alaska photographing nature, specifically black bears.
