Hi. My name is Amber Richards and I love photography and art! This blog is an extension of my website, www.aswirly.com. It is a place to share my projects and goals, photographic adventures, and more… All the fun stuff :) If you would like to see examples of my commissioned work, please visit my website. Thank you for visiting. You can email me here.
What’s Your Story?
Well… nothing too exciting. I’m a native of the San Francisco Bay Area and I live by the Pacific Ocean which gives me nice opportunities to shoot the sea when the weather permits.
I have found photography to be an emotional oulet for me that gives me great satisfaction. It is such fun to work out a scene or situation photographically, analyzing artistic composition as well as technical settings. A merge of technical skill and creativity, photography requires constant learning and practice and I enjoy setting goals for myself and working on technique. When the mood strikes I also enjoy painting, preferably watercolor, and every now and then, oil.
I am happy to have been able to use my photography commercially these last couple of years. I shoot for a variety of architectural projects, I take personal and business portraits, and I am also an image retoucher. To be honest though, I am not looking to make this passion a full-time career. It touches me deeply when people show appreciation for my work. My satisfaction comes from shooting, creating, and sharing. I hope you enjoy my blog :)
