Today we’d like to introduce you to Lizabeth Greer.
Lizabeth, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
Growing up I expressed my feelings through art in the form of painting and drawing. From the hardships I faced at home, to the constant pressures I dealt with at school, drawing kept me sane. That enjoyment always stayed with me as I got older, but it wasn’t until I graduated from high school that I realized my other passion: photography. I began to dabble in photography while being in college studying sociology. It was in those sociology classes that I learned the science behind the interaction of people. Photography for me is an extension to display the intrinsic relationships that are a part of our everyday lives. Through my camera lens, I’m able to capture love in its most genuine form. Being able to not only share in those moments with my clients but to be able to fabricate that atmosphere is something indescribable.
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 encapsulate memories onto paper. I create tangible memories for people through my photography. When I prepare myself for photo shoots with my clients, I construct a genuine connection that allows them to open up to their raw emotions. I feel staying professional while personable is key to creating a relationship with my clients. This fun atmosphere creates once in a lifetime memory. One thing that I hope people can take away from my work is the energy. I hope people say “I want that” “you can tell they are in love”.
The sterotype of a starving artist scares away many potentially talented artists from pursuing art – any advice or thoughts about how to deal with the financial concerns an aspiring artist might be concerned about?
Yes, one thing I have learned about photography is that it does not matter whether you have a super expensive set up if you do not know how to use it. I have met photographers with cheaper set ups and lenses MAKE MAGIC!! It is all about how you work your camera. Stay focused on yourself. Patience is key. Go through your own journey and do not compare yourself to others. Everyone is on their own journey and that is the greatest part about being a photographer-finding your journey alongside amazing people.
Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
People can see my work on my website, Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram. I feel people can support my work by following my work, along with referring me if they believe I would be a good fit with someone 🙂
