STYLIST & BLOGGER
We also have an opening for a stylist to photograph new products at your own studio Â in a creative and inspiring manner. You can use the designers link above to submit your information to Design Aglow.
And, finally, because my spelling and grammar skills are often less than perfect (you would not believe how many emails we receive to inform us of that fact), we would love some world class bloggers, especially photo industry peeps who can commit to 1-2 monthly blog columns (as our new photo craft contributor, Ms. Ashley does, see below).
Do you have a specialty that would fit into our beautiful little world here? Use the writers link above and tell us all about your fine self!
From a very early age I loved taking pictures and looking at them in magazines and books, but the art of photography captured my heart when I was a teenager, on my first overseas trip to Wales. From that point, I began shooting with a little film SLR and having my friend model for me. In college I took some digital photography and visual communication courses as part of my communication studies major, and decided to pursue a career in photography. I became a legal business and took my first paid client at age 20, and it's been quite a journey and adventure over the past nine years.
My business goals have changed a lot over the last few years. This year, my hope is to work on a handful of commercial projects with companies I believe in, and to carve out more time to work on personal projects. Both are important, but I believe growth and your creative voice is developed when you let your imagination run free without the constraints of it being “work.”
I secretly bought a mail-order 35mm camera when I was 15, and took lots of ordinary photos of animals and nature for several years. Although I majored in art and studied photography in college, my career started in marketing and advertising, from the client service end. Then I had the most beautiful baby, found my old camera and realized how much I love photographing people.
