Silver Spring, MD
Hi, and thank you for your visit!
I am Emmy Vickers and I love taking photos of landscapes, animals, wildlife, and nature (l.a.w.n.). I also have added landmarks to this niche (famous and hidden treasures)!! Every so often I will sneak in "food" pics.
Two of my favorite photography quotes come from two phenomenal photographers:
(1) "Photography, as a powerful medium of expression and communications, offers an infinite variety of perception, interpretation and execution." -- Ansel Adams
(2) "Beauty can be seen in all things, seeing and composing the beauty is what separates the snapshot from the photograph." -- Matt Hardy
Originally from Hartford, CT, it was college that brought me to the Washington, DC area. I attended Howard University where I met my soul mate. My husband being from Michigan, and me from Connecticut, we decided staying in this area was a good middle point. We now reside in Silver Spring, MD...right outside our beautiful nation's capital.
A few accomplishments I am proud of: I am a published author and a 2009 award-winning entrepreneur. In addition, I am a strategic networking advisor, public speaker and a proud wife of 27 years to a wonderful caring husband.
I believe in seeing beyond what is in front of you. I guide my audiences and those I know, to DREAM BIG, envision, and take consistent action to make goals and dreams a reality. My goal is always to motivate, inspire, educate and help others.
Because of this mindset, you can probably understand why photography is such a passion for me. I tend to see beyond what is clearly in front of me. I see beauty in everything...from the smallest of the small to the grandeur of our universe. I truly embrace it all. My niche in photography is landscapes, animals, and nature. At times you will see me sneak in "food" scenes.
Photography allows me to experience the world in a different light and to help others do the same. It is a way to share with others laughter, joy, sadness, pain, hope, beauty and life. Photography is truly a passion! It's part of my journey to knowing who I am and to appreciate the amazing world we live in.
I invite you to check out my artwork. Please vote on your favorites and take 30 seconds to let me know you stopped through by leaving a quick comment under that photo. Send me a personal email to let me know how I might be able to help you.
In addition to photography, I love traveling, cruising, fishing, tennis, casinos, 85 degree weather, learning, volunteering, and time with hubby, friends and family.
I look forward to continuously bringing a variety of photos for you to choose from to decorate your home, office, hotel or B&B property or as a gift to someone you know. I am also excited about meeting and networking with other FAA members throughout the world and helping them to promote their amazing works of art!
Have a blessed day and be a blessing to someone each day!!.
