Introduction
Landscape and Portrait Photographer in Geneva, Switzerland

Background:
one woman, a camera, the world...

It feels as if I have been a photographer my entire life...  

My interest in photography was sparked at age nine, when my parents sent me overseas with my mother's small point & shoot camera to visit my godparents.  It was a little box shaped camera with flash cubes that burned out after one use.  I loved that thing and took many photos of my adventure.

In the many years since then, I have moved on through many cameras, various photographic genres, and different medias. I truly enjoy everything photographic - from long exposure landscapes, to artistic portraits, to abstract macro art.

To share my love of photography, I teach courses locally.  If you ever have questions about any of the photos I post - just ask.  I'm happy to share.

Interested in Long Exposure Photography? Over on the +Visual Wilderness blog, I've shared a bit of insight into the what and why of the ND filters I carry with me when I am out shooting. :)

If you are interested in buying ND filters yourself, my suggestion is to go with Firecrest filters from +Formatt-Hitech. My discount code, "Athena10" will save you 10% when you order from them directly. Every little helps. ;) http://www.formatt-hitech.com/

Athena Carey loves her ND Filters...and here is how she uses them to create stunning B/W photos.

In case you needed proof that sunrise is one of the best times of every day, from last Sunday morning with Kevin Bessat, Arnaud Bathiard, and Emmanuel Le Guellec at "my" lake. :)

A processed image from less than a week ago is pretty astonishing. Heck, lately having a processed image from me within a year is pretty amazing. ;)

It was a wonderful morning out here on the Outer Banks. +Tommy White, +Mary Presson Roberts and I were up early.early this morning to recheck the locations on our OBX Workshop itinerary. Here’s an iPhone snappy of what we were looking at around 6am. :)

I think there might be a space left on this workshop if you would like to come join us next weekend. ;)

Apply this one simple guideline to all of your compositions to raise the quality of your photos to a new level: de-clutter!
