Today we’d like to introduce you to Saray Taylor-Roman.
Saray, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I was 13 when I got my first camera. I loved taking pictures of friends, cats, and the landscape around me. Fast-forward to college years: I took a couple of courses in photography and learned what makes a good photo, as well as how to develop my own film. In class I practiced landscape photography, architectural photography, and photojournalism. Those genres were interesting, but none of them truly captured my interest.
Portrait, however, was different. Through portraits, I could build a significant connection with another person. I really enjoyed listening to what people had to say, and then crafting images to retell their story. I knew that portrait was the genre for me.
