Photographer Profiles: Chelsea Strickland Photography

What first attracted you to photography?
It always felt like a third eye for me in a way. You can make things feel magical, even the simplest of things by bringing life to objects or environments that people wouldn’t normally take the time to acknowledge. Then you put it in a frame, for the world to see…
It just kind of comes natural and makes me feel at home. I hope it can be something I can do for a living one day – I would be so content.

What is a moment you are most proud of in regards to photography?
Just being able to make prints of my work and they actually turned out really well! I love tangible prints so much. If I can create more art that people can take home with them… the better.

Favorite style or subject to shoot?
I like anything dark or moody. If I can add that style to it, I’m in love. I love the avant-garde, bleak, and twisted. So I’m getting more brave and trying to experiment more.

Favorite piece of equipment?
Right now I’m using a Nikon D3400. The 50mm lens has become my fav so far. But I’m hoping to upgrade within the next month to a Sony. 🥰🥰🥰🥰

What is your dream photography gig?
I just want to travel and photograph bands, scenery, and street culture. Hopefully, no one punches me in the face for it.

Any advice for others who are interested in photography?

The best piece of advice you received starting out?
I feel like Kristina Wright said it best, to find your niche first. I feel like everyone needs to find what they’re drawn to the most. It will show in your work, and THAT love will shine through. I feel like that‘s true with any artist though. You can tell when a person really loved the piece they were working on – it shows. Whether the colors are more vivid… or the intent is there and you can feel it.

What services do you offer?
I’m learning as I go! So far I offer family portraits, pet portraits, album cover art, anything unique/fine art. I love working with musicians and shooting for band promos. I love doing single person portraits and making a person feel beautiful in their own skin. I’m open to so many things.
