¡Hola! Thank you for checking out Fotografía Pittsburgh. My name is Bethany. I have been a photographer since I first picked up a camera at the age of 15. The old school dark room was my favorite place to be. It is almost magic to shine light on paper and then watch the image emerge in the developing solution! That never got old, even as I worked as a photography instructor.
Today, there is a little less suspense and a bit more tech. But for me, it has always been about the people, the experience and the story. My work allows me to tell many. I look forward to getting to know you. I hope that we can be friends. I agree with what the great Annie Liebovitz said about her pictures, "I was not afraid to fall in love with these people." I hope that is evident in my photographs.
I travel anywhere and everywhere. I go as often as I can, anywhere I can. My very first flight was to Peru. I went camera in hand, stayed for six months where I volunteered, learned Spanish and caught wanderlust, capturing beautiful moments along the way! That trip lead to my day job. I am a Spanish teacher in a local high school and a photographer always! My background in education makes me a natural at organization, communication and professionalism.
Stay tuned for pictures of my next adventure. In the meantime, let's meet for pictures!
