My name is Jessica, but you can call me Jess (most people do) and I live in Alberta, Canada. I created my DiviantArt account so that I could share my photographs, art, thoughts, and ideas with others. You will find in more recent years that I share more of my photography here then any of my other creative or artistic endeavors. I am an amateur photographer, who has just been getting into photography for the past few years and am still learning new tips and techniques every day. I haven't taken any classes, although I would like to sometime in the future. I've learned most of what I know about photography through my husband, what I’ve read online, YouTube teaching & tutorial videos and through an online photography group in which I belong to. The camera that I currently use is a Canon 80D, but I started out with a Fuji Fine Pix, then a Canon T2i, then a Canon T5i, followed by the 7D Mark II. As you will see most of my photography is of animals, specifically reptiles, I am lucky enough to have a number of reptile’s that are very photogenic and cooperative. My favorite thing to do in my photography is to take photographs that can make someone smile, laugh or even brighten their day. I also enjoy (when I am able to) taking photos of nature and wildlife. I hope that you will take the time to browse my gallery's and that you will enjoy the photographs, art, thoughts, and ideas, that I have chosen to share with you here.
