Jen Kiaba Photography Giveaway
I had a chance to interview Jen and learn more about her and her work. Here is what she had to say:
Please tell me about yourself.
I began my journey as a photographer when I was fourteen. My grandfather gave me my first camera right before I embarked on a summer long cross country trip. Right away I was hooked and wanted to learn as much as I could about using the medium as an art. Growing up in an artistic family, I always used my creativity as a means to express myself and generally picked up things like painting, drawing and sculpture relatively quickly. But photography evaded me for the longest time. It is probably because of that difficulty early on that the hobby evolved into such a deep passion for me. In addition to using photography as a fine art, I also work for several regional magazines and newspapers as a photojournalist. I also love the challenge of trying to document live performance!
photography for the show. As soon as he saw the results I became the official in-house photographer for the venue. From there actors began to approach me for headshots; I also began to work a little bit on area weddings. So while my business is multifaceted, I consider myself a fine art photographer. Whether it’s an art image for my Etsy shop or a portrait session, I always try too approach everything with an artistic vision.
