Description Blue Rocks is a small village on the shores of Lunenburg Bay in Nova Scotia. It stands to seaward of Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, somewhat to the east. For many years a fishing village, it was discovered by many artists and photographers (Including Joseph Purcell, William E. deGarthe, Jack L. Gray, Wallace R. MacKaskill and others) beginning in the 1940's. Today the village boasts many artists, and there are also numerous guest houses to be found among the fishermen's dwellings.
Amanda White, UK Member Since October 2009 Artist Statement Amanda White C.P.A.G.B.
Welcome. I am a full time Graphic Designer and a part-time photographer. My love of photography has always existed but has only really developed seriously since 2005, I was published 4 times nationally during that year in Digital Camera Magazine and came 3rd in their ‘Photographer of the Year’ Competition in the Altered Images category.
Inspired by my initial success I proceeded to upgrade my camera to a modest DSLR and haven’t looked back since. In 2008 I attained the first merit award of the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain, which earned me the initials after my name. the subjects I shoot are eclectic, and my post processing techniques vary wildly as I love to experiment and don’t like to be pigeon-holed.
