A Girl, A Camera, And A Vision

Updated on January 17, 2016

The eyes behind the lens.

She has traveled into the extreme wilderness and hiked the rugged backcountry, braving hordes of blood-thirsty parasites and enduring conditions that would challenge any grown man - just to shoot a wolf. Unsuccessfully..... (She did get a moose).

She has traveled into run-down neighborhoods, entered the crappiest nightclubs, and endured the dumbest drunks in pursuit of the perfect band shot.

And, she has taken aim at motorcycles, pets, buildings, and even babies!

All of this with a camera, of course.

Introducing Marie Ann of Sweet Marie Photography. She's into pictures instead of words, and we'd like you to SEE her story.

Anyone can pick up a camera...

Anyone can take pictures. Just like anyone can pick up a guitar, or a paintbrush, or a football. It's what you do with it that sets you apart. Owning a camera allows you to take pictures. It doesn't mean that everyone is a good photographer.

Although she's captured many classic photos of live bands and performers, Marie says her favorite subject is nature and landscape. By far. There's no particular dream shoot in mind. Just a strong desire to travel and capture the world in still.

Another essential quality that sets a good photographer apart from the pack is an ability to choose the right pictures, edit them and apply any needed effects to a photo. In my opinion, this is one of Marie's strong points. Having said that, it all starts with an eye for a good shot. When asked for the secret to getting a good picture, Marie Ann sums it up in one word - "Patience".

I have always taken photos for fun, but once I realized that I had a talent for getting a shot I decided to make more of it.
