Amy Barner, Austin, Texas Member Since January 2009 Artist Statement I am a photographic technology student in Austin, Texas. I discovered photography at a young age but really became driven to explore the art during my freshman year of college. I gained experience in modeling before quickly finding out that I am much more at home behind the lens. I am always the girl at the party who brings the camera out first. Photo shoots are my favorite events. I love capturing the beauty of life one shot at a time. I hate ordinary. I love challenge. I could take pictures of my god daughter Margo until my fingers refused to cooperate. I continue to study all aspects of photography and have yet to find one I don't find joy in. I have sold a few pieces but am still continuing to push my foot into the door. I hope you enjoy my work and keep an eye out for future galleries.
