About

Like many things in life, Seeing Spots Photography started out as a happy accident. In 2002 I started volunteering my photography skills for an equine rescue (www.scrrescue.org) from which I eventually adopted my horse “Spot”.  The name of the business is an homage to the circumstances that lead me down to this photographic journey. 🙂

Fun facts about me:

– I grew up in Connecticut (a small state in the New England region of the USA, known mostly for its fall foliage)

– I’ve been taking photos most of my life, but it wasn’t until a trip to Spain and Portugal in 1999 that I discovered a love of travel and landscape image

– I have since learned everything from black and white film development to current digital photography trends.

– I love bad jokes and chapstick is a daily occurrence, regardless of the weather.

– I author / co-author things!

– I have a visual memory. I’ll remember your face, but your name may take a few tries.

– I have a dog whom we refer to as “The Captain of the Doggie Seas”.  I couldn’t really explain it even if I wanted to.

– I really enjoy helping others shape their images.  I currently offer private photo consult sessions – in the field, editing help, and “feedback sessions” where we break down an image with the intent to build upon it – and have workshops planned for later this year.

– Photography is a huge source of joy and inspiration in my life, and I absolutely love sharing that experience with others.  Never hesitate to reach out to me…I love talking shop.  Or photo-shop, as the case may be. haha

    Hey there…
    Just dropping you a note to say “I hope my Blog didn’t over load your inbox recently’.”
    I think I had something set wrong and as I was creating a post it may have sent out an email to every “follower” of my blog as I made changes. If this happened to you, I am so sorry.
    And in case I haven’t said so yet…Thanks for stopping by my site.

    You and I would make a good social outreach team: you, with your visual memory, knowing the faces, and I, with my prosopagnosia, listening for recognized voice cues, watching familiar movement, and remembering context so I can (hopefully) supply the names to go with them. 😉 I love your approach to your blog and look forward to many more visits, getting to know you and your work along the way!
    Cheers,
    Kathryn

    • seeingspotsphoto March 3, 2015 at 11:22 pm #
