I hope you will find this informative and entertaining!

Interviewed artist: FramedByNature :iconframedbynature:

:bulletyellow: Tell us what defines you as a person.

I suppose my tendency to strive to do better would be what defines me as a person. Even when the "easy way out" is the most tempting, I always end up devoting my full efforts to something, even if it's a seemingly menial task. I always get my work out of the way first, and refuse to share it with others until I'm happy with it myself :nod:

:bulletyellow: How did you find out about deviantART and why did you join the community?

I found out about deviantart through my sister ShiningMoon a number of years ago. She recommended the site to me after I got a camera for my birthday and was seeking a place to share my shots and get feedback (and maybe make a few friends) :)

:bulletyellow: When and how did you discover your passion for art?

I've always had a passion for art, at least in a basic sense. I always loved doing crafts in school, writing, music, just about anything that involved creativity. I discovered my passion for photography when my parents bought me a point-and-shoot camera for my birthday. I started sharing my shots, becoming genuinely proud of what I was producing, and it just snowballed from there! =D

:bulletyellow: What inspires you the most and when do you think your creativity is at its maximum?

Nature and the sky inspire me the most. My creativity is at its maximum when I'm shooting something epic, like a blazing sunset or a spinning supercell. I know this, because when I get excited about a photo op, I start singing to myself :P

:bulletyellow: What do you think you'd be doing if you hadn't chosen this path?

If I hadn't chosen photography, I probably would have gone into something engineering-related. I loved drafting in high school, and I was decent at math, so I feel like I would have made a decent architect =D

:bulletyellow: What do you think it's your most meaningful deviation and what makes it

special? Does it have a story behind it?

Stop and Stare is really my most meaningful. It embodies doing what I love, which is chasing storms. And it's not always the storms that make the trip worth it, it's the friends. This shot of an epic supercell we intercepted during my first year of chasing always brings back a rush of excitement. There's nothing like standing underneath a supercell with your friends ;)

:bulletyellow: Do you have any insecurities regarding your art?

Try as I might, sometimes I just don't feel the creative flow and end up emulating the work of others when shooting. This really isn't the best thing to do when you're trying to develop your own style, but I only do it in moderation. Drawing inspiration from others is healthy, as long as you remember that you need to create your own body of work!

:bulletyellow: Did art ever helped you to deal with your life problems?

I've been fairly lucky and have had relatively few major problems in my life. When I do have problems, I use photography as an escape to keep me sane. Whether its dealing with heartbreak or just plain stress, picking up a camera and shooting something beautiful always puts my mind at peace :aww:

:bulletyellow: What is the one thing you always wanted to do but never got a chance to?

I've always wanted to go to New Zealand. Obviously there's mainly a simple financial block preventing this from happening... but the country just looks too beautiful to stay away from. I will live there someday, or at least visit on a honeymoon =D

:bulletyellow: A few words for our fellow artists?

My word to other artists: Don't ever stop producing art. Some of us may not realize it, but expression is what truly keeps people sane and healthy.
