Photography has been very good to me, for a while I have realized that I wanted to find a way to give back to the community that helped me to jump start my career because I have no idea what rock I would be lying under if it was not for the artistic qualities and the joy discovered shooting photo images. As a way to say thank you and a part of my ongoing series to introduce as many new photographers whom I would describe as peers in the photography industry, to consider joining the Steemit community and platform.
I am pleased to introduce three new photographers who's images I have been given the permission to curate for this post. I am equally as pleased to be able to introduce Steemians to these photographers as I am to introduce these photographers to the Steemit platform. Judging from the sample's of work I have shared from these photographers on this post alone, from my perspective it's obvious these photographers deserve a place here on the site and a foot in the door.
It never fails to humble me when I realize just how generous and amazing photographers can be when I find myself looking for permission to share photographers work for a blog post. Of course some photographers are solely motivated by profit and corporate status, the majority of photographers I have encountered in my time as a photographer believe in the art of photography and cherish as I do myself the chance to be able to be out in the field capturing dynamic images. Just to be able to race home to our computers, unpack a given set of image's in Photoshop, spending a few more hours post-processing photos, only to share the work for free with the world time and time again. That's the reality for most photographers including myself and it probably has not been said enough times how amazing artist who are at the top of their photography game who also happen to be extremely generous individuals actually are.
Any photographer who decides to join Steemit after being invited with one of my blog entries is going to receive a generous up vote for their first post as well as a follow-up interview with a more in-depth article featuring the artist who have arrived on the site. It's not obvious for people who are not familiar with cryptocurrency why they should join a site like this without first familiarizing themselves with the platform in general. That is why I will take as much time as it requires to introduce and properly explain the procedure to anyone I have invited with a blog entry, who I consider to be my peers in the photography industry. Not that I don't think everyone in the world should join the site, I just don't have the time to indoctrinate everyone myself. Although one day I hope to have more time to on-board new users to Steemit 24/7 ;D
In the mean time I have to settle on the four to six hours of free time it takes me to write up and curate one of these post every few days, or as often as I can!
Meet Sapna Reddy Photography!
Sapna Reddy is a landscape based photographer out of sunny California. Sapna describes the pursuit of Photography as a spiritual journey filled with happiness every step of the way.
Pursuing a career in photography and Medicine, Sapna works as a radiologist analyzing images in attempts to archive a cure. Sapna Reddy transition to become a professional photographer was triggered by her passion for teaching. The workshops Sapna teaches at national parks in America are geared to small groups with an emphasis placed on creative aspects of photography. All profits from Sapnas workshops are donated to charity.
Sapna Reddys image's have been used by major corporations such as Google, HItachi, Gap and Yahoo, if all of that was not enough to make you smile, Spana loves to hear when you use her images for a personal screen saver! I have to tip my hat to Sapna, she is one heck of a fantastic talent and a really nice human being! Cheers Sapna <3
Meet Pascale Forest!
Inspired by her art studies at Collège Lionel Groulx, Pascale is suffering from two autoimmune and neurological diseases although her passion inevitably motivates her to get out in the world and capture breathtaking images!
Pascale operates at a much higher degree of difficulty when she set's out to capture images compared to the average photographer. The level of the motivation required to be a photographer under normal circumstances is one thing and the amount of love it takes to put your heart and soul into something that essentially pays nothing back while confronting the reality of a disability, Pascales experience's is something I can't imagine. Although the amount of work that it takes to be a photographer is something I can speak to. I can say first hand Pascale has an amazing work ethic and I would consider myself lucky to be out in the field shooting with her anytime considering we're from the same province, I would love to get the chance to meet her one day.
Pascale Forest seems to be friends with wildlife <3 That apparently follow her around everywhere she goes allowing her to capture amazing images. The quality and detail of Pascal's photo's are exceptional as well as perfectly framed.
Pascale Forest is the kind of photographer I find inspiring, the kind of photographer who motivates me with her collection of work to push myself to the limit without fail! Cheers Pascale ;D
Meet Yan L!
Yum is a software engineer working out of California. Young describes himself as someone who really loves the outdoors and considers Landscaping photography a great way to enjoy his hobby as well as a way to get out in the world.
Yan says he is still learning how to become a better photographer and considers sharing his work online to be an amazing resource for polishing his photography skill. I can't say I disagree with that logic. Photography blogs on the internet helped me hon in my skill, I consider myself lucky to have found some of the blogs for photography through the internet I have over the years and consider the information a fundamental building block for any photographer looking to step up their game in the photography realm and take their experience to the next level.
I say Yan has the right attitude and his images are the proof. Although Yan does not have a professional website yet, that does not mean Yans images do not make the cut. I am happy to be able to introduce to the Steemit community this wonderful artist who is just starting out in the photography world.
I want to take a second to thank you for checking out this post. Comments for the photographers are always appreciated and I look forward to hearing your feedback in the comment section below.
