Our Newest Photographer Is Catherine Lilbit Devine From Rincon Creek Studios

Below she will tells us about herself and her work:

I started my love affair with image capturing when I was a sophomore in High School.  I was given a small 35mm camera and black & white film by the photography teacher.  My assignment was to go about my daily routine for the next two weeks and capture photos as I went.  At the end of the two weeks, I had to develop the photos in the darkroom and create a portfolio of my images.  My photography teacher used my portfolio as an example of "creative, professional" work and submitted them into a photography competition.

That was 32 years ago . I have since moved on to digital photography.  I use an Olympus EV500 currently, as my Nikon D300 and all of its lenses were stolen.  I also have a Nikon Coolpix 8800, which I use as a back-up.  Its old but it does quite well in a pinch.

I have traveled extensively throughout Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland and the Southwestern United States capturing slices of time, landscape, people, culture and traditions. I also do location photography for Family portraits and special events.

I consider myself to be a semi-professional photographer, as it isn't my main source of income...yet.
