Welcome Shelly Swanger!

We’re thrilled to welcome to the team our new in-house photographer Shelly Swanger. Here’s a bit from her website bio:

Growing up in Memphis, I was always a dreamer. I loved music and all things visual. I used to take my Grandmother’s Kodak Instamatic camera and play around with it all the time. My true love has always been music and I asked for a drum set year after year. I never got the drums but I got my first “real” camera when I was 14 and I’ve been shooting ever since. I photograph music, people, places, things……whatever moves me. My editorial, music and travel photography have all appeared in many regional, national and international publications. I was honored to be named South Walton Photographer of the year for 2015 as well as 30A.com “Hottest Local Photographer” for 2015 for the 30A area of the Florida Panhandle. I still work extensively in that area as well.

My subjects often change but my style remains the same. I love to get close to what I am shooting and really try to give the viewer an intimate feel and a front row seat. I am always striving to capture emotion, I’m shy in real life and I think that photography gives me a voice that I sometimes wouldn’t have without it. I love it when people “hear” me in this way.
