photography interview with CMpro Lauren Sanderson

11 questions with photographer Lauren Sanderson

Hi Lauren! Big congrats on being the CMpro of the month. Can you tell us a little about yourself and how you got started in photography?

Thank you! I’m a mom of three sweet girls five and under, and my husband and I are high school sweethearts and have been married for almost 12 years. I’m a part-time professional photographer in Huntsville Alabama and mostly photograph families and children, with a few maternity, senior and newborn sessions sprinkled in. I’ve always loved taking pictures… I was that girl in high school who was always taking pictures, had double glossy prints developed at a one-hour photo, and then passed out the doubles to all my friends. When I started a family, that natural love of photography turned in to a real passion and hobby, and before I knew it, I was in business.(…)

10 questions with photographer Jennifer Bogle

Congratulations on being featured as the CMPro of the Month, Jennifer! Would you please tell us a little about your photography journey? First memory including a camera, what made you pick up photography as a serious endeavor and how you came to be where you are today?

Thanks! I’m really honored to be interviewed!

I had a camera in high school, and vaguely remember snapping through rolls of film, but I was never a student of photography. And then, predictably, my first son was born and I bought a DSLR–a Rebel Xti. Unfortunately, it took me five years (and two more kids) to learn that a dslr isn’t just an expensive point and shoot. A friend introduced me to Clickin Moms and I started reading! That was about two and a half years ago.(…)

11 questions with photographer Bob Weil

11 questions with photographer Bob Weil

During a business trip to St. Petersburg, Russia in Winter 2010, I found that I used my iPhone camera more often than my conventional DSLR to take pictures. I proceeded to edit several of them on the phone during the trip, and was impressed with what I could do with the few apps I had at hand. I realized that mobile had become a legitimate platform for image capture and editing – but had still not attracted serious attention from the media or the arts world. I was validated in my thinking when one of the photos I took during the trip won an IPPA iPhone Photographer of the Year Award in 2013.(…)
