Today we’d like to introduce you to Hayley Rae Farrer.
Hayley, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
I, without a doubt, am absolutely in love with taking photographs. My photography journey started when I was about 12 years old. I was always the one who had my little pocket-sized digital camera with me; trying to capture as many memories as I could as if life was going too fast for me to take them all in. Fast forward to high school, where I continued to thrive through art and went to a trade school program where I learned all about graphic design. It wasn’t until college when I decided to take some photography classes that I really discovered my passion for it and ended up taking every single class they had to offer. I knew then and there that me behind the camera was something special. From the get-go, I was drawn to portraiture. I love being able to capture the light in people’s eyes when they are truly happy and the littlest moments that they’ve never had the chance to see otherwise. Don’t get me wrong though photography isn’t static. It’s something that requires constant education, ambition, and motivation. It’s something that I am continuously evolving with.
Can you give our readers some background on your art?
Throughout my nine years of experience being a photographer, I have learned so much, but my main goal has remained the same: To convey the emotions my clients are feeling in whatever season of life they are in. Whether it be an Engagement or a yearly Family Session, there’s always a story to be told. I love being able to tell those stories and bring joy to my client’s lives by doing so. My main focus is portraiture, and I strive to be the photographer that you go to for every one of life’s chapters.
Do you think conditions are generally improving for artists? What more can cities and communities do to improve conditions for artists?
I think for photographers the recent years have been tough because there’s so much competition when it comes to photography living in a big city. All we can do is help support and educate each other so that we all thrive at what we are good at!
What’s the best way for someone to check out your work and provide support?
I post ALOT on Instagram and Facebook, and of course, my website is a great showcase for my work as well.
