Today we’d like to introduce you to Michaella Hill.
Michaella, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
I took a photography class in High School and really fell in love with it! After graduation I never really pursued that passion. My 23rd birthday my husband came home with a huge surprise for me, my first Canon camera. I had planned only using my camera for my own personal use as a hobby but that spark from high school reignited and I wanted to do more!
We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
I strive to photograph natural connections and pure raw emotions. I love to have movement in my photos! I love to capture couples and families interacting with each other as if I’m not even there. Those are the types of photographs that they will look back on and be able to connect a fun memory to versus just an awkwardly posed pretty picture.
What do you know now that you wished you had learned earlier?
My advice for other artists is to not compare your work to others. At first, I would kill my own vibe by comparing my work to photographers that had YEARS of experience on me. Be your own person and let your personality shine through and your ideal clients will be attracted to you. I also would encourage other creatives to reach out to other photographers in your area and get together! I love meeting people who have the same passion that I do. I feel like you can always learn something from each other!
Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
Instagram is an awesome way to see and support my work! I also have a website currently under construction. www.michaellahillphotography.com
