Today we’d like to introduce you to Seran Halter.
Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
A love for documentation has been passed down in my family. My great grandfather served as an aerial photographer in the Korean War. My grandfather has spent his entire life documenting his life, his family, genealogy work, and war reunion groups. My mother always made sure to document our lives as well. Honestly, that’s where it all started for me. I enjoyed documenting my own life through my eyes, as well. Until I started taking photography classes in high school. 2013 is when I really started getting a feel for what I could do with a camera. My little brother always served as my muse. He would parkour off of buildings and skate through the streets and under large bridges. In college, while attending my first serious class at the Parson’s School of Design is where I bought my first DSLR camera and started learning on my own. Unfortunately, my photography journey was delayed when my father-in-law passed away. I moved back down to Arizona and stayed in my childhood home. I continued to take photography classes as a part of my minor at the University of Arizona. Again I was delayed when I had a tumor in my head, causing me to go partially deaf. As I recovered from head surgery and gained more energy, I was able to start putting more time and effort into becoming a part-time photographer, and so far it’s a complete blast!
Please tell us about your art.
I am a local photographer. I love working with couples and families or photographing events and weddings. I also create prints of animals and nature. I’m inspired by raw emotion, movement, and authenticity. I hope that people get feeling and enjoyment out of my art.
As an artist, how do you define success and what quality or characteristic do you feel is essential to success as an artist?
That’s an interesting question and one I’ve been thinking about a lot lately. Success for me is going home with a memory card filled with images and a pep in my step. I thoroughly enjoy culling through images from a session and pulling out images people will love for a lifetime. Success is knowing that my clients love their images and are in love with the results.
