Down by the Sea Photographs
Being a Freelance Photographer, Street Photographer & Wildlife Photographer on an island & tourist destination, on the Gulf of Mexico is easy! My interest in photography started as a young adult & after growing up with five sisters and no family photos. My interest became stronger and the gift I had been given became keener.
I started Down by the Sea Photographs eight years ago after moving to the home I call my island paradise. I knew then this is where & what I was supposed to do. Share the passion of my style of photography with the world! Yes I dream BIG. One image at a time. From my eyes to yours. My photography has been described as gorgeous, stunning, fun, edgy, raw, classy, colorful, to name a few.
I love what I do & I think it shows in the uniqueness of my images. As technology is rapidly changing and the learning never ends, I am constantly adding a twist of creativity in each & every image I catch. Moments in time frozen. Images of people, places & things saved due to my gift of the fascination with life & the human and animal elements of this world. I do this as I search for meaning in this beautiful world that surrounds me. Smile .... I may be the one behind that camera!
