Today we’d like to introduce you to Beth Jeffrey.
Beth, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
My mind has always worked better behind the lens where I can create images. My favorite class in college was a film/photography class as I was really interested in the material and fascinated. I started with a Polaroid as a child and from there I was traveling across country from college taking photos of the beautiful landscapes and scenery.
I love to capture the emotion in moments with humans and animals in nature as well and the connection in within all around us. My favorite subject is children however, I love to photograph everything from nature to food and beyond. I feel a deep connection when I behind the camera and I feel as though I have a gift.
My dream is to someday photograph animals in nature for education as well as doing family photography. I love National Geographic and have been published online a few different times. My number one inspiration is my son. When he was born I was even more inspired and knew this was a great business and had flexibility.
Can you give our readers some background on your art?
I want people to feel the connection between nature, each other and our pets. I want people to feel love most of all and the raw reality of life. Life is so intense and photos can document so many aspects of this. Anything from the sky and the changes in nature to peoples stages in life with there family and their paths in life.
I love photographing animals in nature as well with there raw unaltered emotions and how they are impacted by humans and nature. I love newborns and how beautiful and natural they are. My favorite photographs are the in-between moments when people are interacting and acting naturally in nature as well.
Any advice for aspiring or new artists?
One suggestion for any photographers is to not stress out during photo shoots and to understand that each one is impossible to plan exactly and you have to be able to go with the flow and just capture anything that comes your way! Don’t compare your work to others stay focused on your own inspiration and goals and be confident with that!
What’s the best way for someone to check out your work and provide support?
I have a website, FB page, Instagram. I have been published on National Geographic’s website as well as had prints hung in a hospital gallery for Alzheimer’s patients. I get published on different various websites and also have been published in several restaurants and galleries.
I have been photographing for a food company as well and many photos are on the packaging as well as the website for recipes. People can support me by liking my FB page and visiting my website. I appreciate it very much!
