More about Asha W....
What do you love about your job?
What I love most about my job as a photographer and visual artist is being able to take imaginative concepts and turn them into realities. Of course, the picture is only a single snapshot of a moment in time, but these moments serve a greater purpose. They inspire, tell stories, convey emotions, and more. As I mentioned in my philosophy of photography all perspectives on the art form are subjective to the individual. Being able to connect and understand the perspectives of those who commission, admire, or notice my art is what keeps me in love with this job.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
During my career, I’ve done a lot of events that have stood out and I remember to this day. Events where people Dance and are constantly moving and enjoying themselves; specifically high-energy events like weddings, birthday parties, and nightlife come to mind immediately.
I make these sessions special by bringing a unique energy and perspective to every event. Capturing photos where people are candid and lively makes me happy. It’s even more special when people see and react to the images, and express to me how much joy it’s brought to them.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
I have been recognized as a featured artist in multiple galleries and events over the years, both online and in-person. My work has been sold to collectors at art shows and auctions.
There are no notable awards or honors I’ve received for my photography at this point. However, I am exploring options for contests and artist grants beginning in 2022.
