Today we’d like to introduce you to Amber Kay Lonski.
Amber Kay, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
I have always loved taking pictures. It all began with a disposable camera, ha.
As a young girl, I loved documenting everything from my pets- to my grandma’s backyard landscape- to my friends. As I got older, I began working in the corporate world and put this passion of mine to the side and never really thought I would get the chance to become a photographer. I thought at the time, it was too late.
About three years ago, on Mother’s Day, my husband surprised me with my first DSLR because he knew it was something I really loved and wanted to get back into. I’m beyond grateful for him for supporting this dream of mine,
I feel like I still have so much to learn and grow as an artist but, I’ve recently learned to just enjoy the journey of where I’m currently at.
Can you give our readers some background on your art?
I love telling stories through what I see through my lens. When I’m doing a portrait or a couples session, I love to get to know my subjects, get a feel of their sense of humor and let them be exactly who they are and capture them exactly that way.
Many things inspire me. Truth, nature, love, sunbeams, and humor.
I hope that when people get their photos back, they can see how beautiful they are, inside and out. That they can see the joy or whatever emotion I’m capturing at that moment.
What would you recommend to an artist new to the city, or to art, in terms of meeting and connecting with other artists and creatives?
I really make an effort to reach out to other local photographers. I have seen a lot of others in the industry say that they have felt left out or feel overwhelmed with social media and it doesn’t have to be that way! I’m always down to connect and create with others and hopefully, I can inspire others to do the same!
What’s the best way for someone to check out your work and provide support?
