In The Viewfinder is a new series that allows you to learn a bit more about your favorite FYP Writers.Â While we know your enjoy their articles, sometimes you just want to know what makes them tick!Â We are pleased to provide that insight for you.
Brooke Snow is a lifestyle photographer in Northern Utah.Â She lives with her husband and spunky two year old son in a 99 year old house–all of which have a lot of character!
Brooke’s formal education includes advanced degrees in Music, and she often seeks for ways to merge music with her photography. Whether that is composing a track of music for an image slideshow, taking inspiration from the lyrics of a song, or simply learning to “listen” through the creative process, she loves to find ways to bring the influence of all her interests into her work.
Brooke writes inspirational articles that take root in the concept of being true to your authentic self.Â As an educator, she passionately believes that each person has a unique vision that is influenced by every life experience, interest, trial, or triumph that make up who we are.Â Exploring the different ways that we can capitalize on our unique differences is a theme you’ll see again and again in her writing.
Brooke is a Nikon shooter who prefers prime lenses because of the limitations they bring. Not having a zoom option, in essence forces her to be a bit more creative and physically active in creating a photo.Â This compliments her lifestyle storytelling approach in her work, as she is always searching for exciting perspectives and composition to bring in a little intrigue into a visual story.
Brooke spent fourÂ years shooting professional portrait photography and recently opted for a business sabbatical to give more time to focus on her online photography courses that empower photographers both technically and creatively.Â Much of her current photography work involves exciting and interactive shoots that are filmed live for her classes as well as a list of personal photography projects to keep the balance of using photography as a source of joy and not just a source of income!
