I would like to introduce myself: I'm Susie Rivers
I've always been an avid outdoor person, biking, diving and hiking all over the world. When COVID became the new normal in 2020, the old normal of meeting friends and hitting the trails changed drastically. I had to find a suitable alternative for my love of being out in nature. Photography has always been an interest (I was on the annual staff in high school, taking pictures of classmates and events) so it wasn't too far fetched that I would continue to enjoy my love of nature, albeit alone with my cameras.
I fell in love with wildlife photography, especially fast-flying, fast-moving, hard-to-photograph species which provided a challenge and hours of fun to capture.
I branched out into Landscape photography almost a year after starting wildlife photography and began to book trips to areas where I could capture some stunning sceneries not found in my native Florida, such as Alaska and Arizona. This has now become a yearly pilgrimage.
I am a Getty contributor and have achieved somewhat of a following on Instagram and Facebook. I also enter my art in various contests.
My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.
My first inspiration in photography came from Ansel Adams. I can still recall seeing the breath-taking images for the first time and saying to myself..."I want to do this".
I am always learning new techniques and reading other photographers' blogs and stories, picking up bits and pieces of their knowledge to incorporate into my own. The most important technique is to improve my craft daily.
It is my dream to make Photography my career, even though at this time I work as a project manager for a government contractor. Hard work and dedication will prevail.
