Today we’d like to introduce you to Eva Lempert.
Eva, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
My first foray into the visual arts was drawing/painting, water color and charcoal were my medium. As I got older, I started to delve into photography, taking my film camera with me on all my trips when I was in middle school. Because of my love for all things visual, I took it one step further and went to college with a major in studio arts, photography. My photography career began in weddings and that was about it for 15 years. With the birth of my son in 2013, I “retired” from the wedding industry and re-focused my career on families, kids, editorial and commercial photography. Fast forward to 2018, and I’m now about to celebrate my 20th year in the photography industry!
We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
I am a portrait and lifestyle photographer with a focus on families, motherhood, children, and commercial work. I love what I do and am inspired to do it because every photo tells the story of someone’s life in a specific moment of time. I get to help in creating a legacy for someone…something that continues to tell a story long after the moment is gone. I love that I get to connect with my clients on a personal level, and at times, a very intimate level. My creative style can be described as natural, effortless, organic, and simple – completely a collaboration between me and the individual(s) that I’m working with.
Have things improved for artists? What should cities do to empower artists?
Conditions for artists today are awesome! A huge part of this awesomeness is the various social media platforms available today and the opportunities they provide artists to get their art out to the masses! Before social media, artists would struggle to get the word out about their art due to limited resources, financials, etc. Today, with the reach and opportunity offered by various social media platforms, artists really have all the resources at the tips of their fingers, for practically free! There is no excuse as to why an artist can’t get their work out to the public these days! Because of that, today is where artists can manage to flourish
