Today we’d like to introduce you to Jennifer Huang.
Jennifer, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I started photography a few years ago at Pasadena City College. My first photo class was black and white film. I remember feeling really excited because I’ve always wanted to go through the process of developing and printing it on my own. I struggled, not really knowing what to shoot, and just figuring out my camera. it wasn’t until I transferred to Cal State Long Beach where I slowly began shooting portraits, particularly nudes, with the help of my boyfriend who is also a photographer and my inspiration. Today, I still shoot fine art photography, but this is only my beginning.
Has it been a smooth road?
There were definitely some small bumps in the road when I was in school. I think the professors and I had different ideas about art photography. I ended up second guessing myself and the work I was doing. I also feel that in the beginning, I was struggling with myself as an artist (as many do, right?), but the more I shot, the more satisfied I started to become with my work.
Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and career?
I’m not sure if I want to use the term “luck”, but I feel fortunate to come across those in my life that have helped and influence me with art and photography.
Is there a quality or characteristic that has played an outsized role in your success?
I don’t think I’m at that level of success yet, but I would say being content and grounded are important to me.
What do you love about our city and what do you dislike?
The best thing about LA is that there’s so much to see and do. The least – smog and traffic; it drives me crazy.
