Today we’d like to introduce you to Rebecca Griffith.
Rebecca, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
My story began when I purchased my first camera for a high school band trip (yes, I am a nerd) to Chicago. The same camera began my photography career 4 years later, known as “Rebecca Griffith Photography”. During college, I started my business with a focus on graduating seniors, since I live in College Station, with Texas A&M University being right next door. From there, I transitioned to couples and families, finding my passion for capturing love stories. The moment I realized I wanted to take a chance at shooting weddings, I reached out to a wedding photographer I knew and asked to shadow. Months later, I booked my first wedding and the rest is history.
We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
My art of wedding photography is built on the foundation and mission for, “capturing genuine love”. Anytime I have a portrait session or wedding, I am constantly finding new ways to express the unique story of every couple. Photography is my passion and joy. Behind the camera, I am constantly smiling and laughing at sessions – which leaves my face hurting just as much as my clients. I hope people take away an experience and excitement of the new season they are embarking on. Getting your picture taken shouldn’t be painful or awkward, but something that they will have for a lifetime.
How can artists connect with other artists?
The best advice for connecting with others is to reach out and shadow artists that may be more established then you or someone you aspire to be. Often you can just direct message them on any social sites or email and you could express the desire to learn. Also, I follow and stay up to date on the photographers that I look up to, this creates new ideas that I can try at my next session or wedding.
Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
My work is easily accessible on my website (www.rebeccagriffithphotography.com), Instagram (@rebecgriffith), and Facebook “Rebecca Griffith Photography”. The biggest support and compliment I can receive is a referral. Starting a session or the wedding process with having mutual friends or a connection makes for much more of a business experience. It is a start to a friendship!
