Occupation: Photographer, Life Coach, Activist, Musician. Instagram: @roseslensphoto Where were you born? I was born on a homestead in rural Wisconsin where my parents grew all of our food, but I grew up in Boulder, Colorado. In one sentence what is unique about your work? There is a vivid, ethereal quality to it that allows the viewer to see the beauty in anything. Why do you do what you do? I love exploring the world and capturing true beauty, whether that’s a flamenco dancer in the streets of Sevilla, or the Empire State Building reflected in a puddle. What inspires you? The idea of living life from the heart, living to the fullest, and capturing that in beautiful, colorful images. Describe your personal style. I would say my focus is mostly on artful documentary portraiture that often has an otherworldly quality to it. Your ultimate must-have. A 128GB CF card, so I rarely need to change cards. And, comfortable shoes ;) What superpower would you have and why? Teleportation. I travel a lot and am always wishing I could travel more, I want to be everywhere and do everything! There’s so much beauty to experience in the world! What is next for you? I just returned from Peru with a newfound passion for the jungle, which is so alive and colorful and magical. I’m now working on several strategic ways of helping the Amazon and plan to return soon, camera in hand, ready to take a million photos.
