“full time mother, occasional photographer.”

Born in Argentina, Betina left at the age of 8, when she went to boarding school in Europe.  She Harrow Art school in London and studied Dramatic Art in Rome, before moving back to London to work in television and film production for several years.

Currently she lives in the small town of Ojai, California, nestled in the mountains but only a few miles from the Pacific ocean.  Married to writer Richard La Plante, she is a self proclaimed, “full time mother, occasional photographer.”  She always loved photography but took a more serious interest in it after meeting and becoming close friends with the legendary Elliott Erwitt and his wife Pia while living in East Hampton, NY.

She started doing social events, weddings, location shoots and casting photos for experience, before concentrating on her real passion – people.

The results of a photo session with Terence Stamp in 2009 led to some great exposure in international competitions, and just recently in National Geographic, which fueled the passion to keep taking portraits.  Currently, she is working on several personal portraiture projects, as well as being a regular contributor to sports magazines Peloton and 3GO Triathlon.

    I found this article very interesting, but there is one incoherence that struck me: how could Betina attend the Harrow Art school if it was, and still is, an only-boys, christian school? In addition, could you post some sources from where you got your info for this article?

    Thank you for your time,

    Jean-Marie Robatto
