I have had many people over the years ask me why I got into the Photography and Video field. For me it started when I was a child and my Father would bring out his super 8 video camera and start taping our Thanksgiving dinner. He always had this massive hand made light platform to light the whole room while we ate. I can’t tell you how many times he blew a fuse when he plugged it in. It became almost second nature to all of us. Every Holiday and special occasion the camera would make an appearance. I have to say I was fascinated by it. Once I was old enough I started picking up the camera and shooting on my own. Didn’t matter if it was a still camera or a video camera. I usually had both. One in my hand and the other around my neck. I enrolled at Wayne State University in Detroit and four years later I received my Bachelor of Arts Degree, specializing in Photography, Film and Video production.
While in college I met a very talented Photographer, Miro Anderson. Soon after we married. Together we built this business and had three wonderful children. He passed away seven years ago, but much of what I know today I attribute to his talents.
I still have such a passion for both photography and video. No, I can’t tell you which one I like more. It depends on what I am working on at the moment. I love photography for how it captures light and a split second emotion. I love video for its movement and how adding audio can change how you react to the movement. It is all still so fascinating to me!
