Light makes photography. Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light. Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography.

– George Eastman

The word “photography” was created from the Greek roots phōtos, “light” and graphé, “representation by means of lines” or “drawing”, together meaning “drawing with light”. Which basically makes me a Jedi. I think.

My name is Rachel and I love what I do.

I grew up in a very small town outside of Syracuse, and became entrenched in a love for art and photography (thanks largely to my parents). I decided to pursue what I love. Since graduation, I have been finding work along with furthering myself as an artist.

I have always been fascinated with light. The way it looks and changes, and how it gives life and meaning. As an artist, I am still (and probably always will be) developing my style. So far I tend to border on the abstract by using shape and form together with perspective. I often use strong formal elements and geometric shapes. I am drawn to bright colors and cool color palettes, always with a crisp and clean feeling.

I want to help you see what I see.

My job is to isolate one moment in time. Change is swift, and our lives and the lives of our families are constantly evolving. Trees grow, colors fade, and time continues on. Photographs represent the present, which quickly becomes the past.
