Creativity. Inspiration. Happiness.
There is nothing like driving down the road, setting amongst the quiet surroundings and seeing so many photographic opportunities fly by. I use this time to gather and store the visions that I feel my camera should capture next. This is a time where I let my creativity develop my next shoot. This is the time to capture the visions that inspire my happiness. It’s time toshoot and it’s time to share my love and enthusiasm for photography with you!
Hi, I’m Caryn Hill. I’m here to help you create and inspire your happiness. I’ve been told I’m a “woman on a mission” many times throughout my life and with keeping that in mind, I’m here to inspire you, the same way my creativity has inspired me. I’m here to help guide you through the various learning curves on how to shoot a red hot arch in the rising sun or a darkened slot canyon that is bursting with deep oranges, reds and purples. I’m here to help open your eyes to a unique way of shooting at a different angle. I’m here to send you home with photos you never thought possible of obtaining. I’m here to share with you, my passion for shooting the southwest!
My background in photography is simple. I am a self-taught photographer that had to learn by trial and error, during the film years! My early years of shooting began when I “co-managed” a camera department in Evanston, Wyoming during the oil boom years. My first camera was a fully manual, Pentax K-1000, that eventually took a swim in the Green River. From there I moved onto the Pentax, ME Super and shot everything from landscapes to motorcycles and wildlife, having images published in local newspapers and magazines. Fast forward to the digital years and I am now the proud owner of a Canon 5D, Mark II. My leap of faith back into photography has now brought forth gallery showings, senior portraits (I love photographing young people, they are so full of energy!) commercial equine photography and published severe weather photography. I have had the pleasure of working with award winning photographers and videographers through hired gigs with The Discovery Channel, Google and BBC, just to name a few. My love of the southwest is my “icing on the cake” and therein lies the desire to share that with you.
So please, come join us, as we venture out into places you can’t find on Google. I promise to send you home with a bit of inspiration and happiness. :)
