Jill Sprague, Philadelphia Member Since April 2007 Artist Statement I have been a photographer for as long as I can remember. I used to sneak into my parents bedroom & take, without permission, my father's old collectible German camera. I would go out & take some fantastic photographs & they always wondered how they got there until I confessed. I bought my first camera at the age of 8 from the back of a cereal box. Even as a small child, I possessed a passion & talent for capturing that magical moment in time. My sense of unique photography didn't go over to well with my photography teachers. At one point in my youth, a teacher told me to give up photography all together because I wasn't following the "rules".
I strive to capture a unique photo of anything I find interesting. I look for the fun in composing a shot & how I can capture the subjects personality.
Today, I still try to capture the beauty & magic that is around us, especially in nature. I just want to share my unique images with everyone.
Thank you for stopping by to take a look at my work. PLEASE check back regularly as I will continually post new work.

PSS: I am more determined more than ever now to take more brilliant images and share my photography before I loose my eye sight to that dreadful disease called Glaucoma.
