Today we’d like to introduce you to Adrienne Credo.
Adrienne, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
I have always loved photos. I have several albums documenting my first 5 or 6 years of my life. As time went on, I was more interested in being behind the camera. At the age of 14, I picked up my parents’ old Minolta film camera and walked around my apartment complex. My apartment complex was situated at the bottom of a very large hill full of nature, so I took my camera with me on my walks. I was so intrigued by the way I can manipulate a photo without getting instant feedback you would normally get from a digital SLR. Getting the film developed was both nerve wracking and exciting. As time went on, I saved money for my first digital SLR. When I went to college, my first major purchase was a Nikon D3200. This camera still serves me today! Ever since then, I’ve been honing my photography skills and capturing moments around me and for other people.
Can you give our readers some background on your art?
I love capturing the world around me that people often overlook. One of my favorite times to shoot is right after a rain storm. The cloud formations are always so breathtaking and I find that many people don’t take the time to appreciate that kind of beauty, Landscape photography has always been a favorite of mine because the photos I create make people see the beauty I see. However, I love working with people as well. I love bringing people’s visions to life. I try to capture moments that people normally don’t think about or think is too awkward or weird. When I receive positive feedback from my clients, I am always happy to hear that the moments they didn’t even think about are some of their favorite shots. Ultimately, I want my artwork to exude positivity and bring a little light to the darkness that this world can bring upon us.
How do you think about success, as an artist, and what do quality do you feel is most helpful?
I think the biggest challenge for artists today is creating authentic work that captures the hearts and minds of the people. Many artists struggle to maintain their authenticity while also catering to their demographics and audiences. I’m sure many artists feel this way, and I’m no stranger to this feeling. However, whenever I feel like my work is becoming inauthentic, I remind myself of why I picked up the camera in the first place. This helps me ground myself and realize that if I’m not happy with what I’m putting out, then others will not be happy either.
