Capturing the mysterious beauty found in both natural and man-made landscapes, the first time we received Marie's order for a custom wood print, we instantly fell in love with her photographs. This week we were excited to have the pleasure of asking Marie a few questions about her impressive skills...
PW: As a professional photographer, what was the time difference between the first time you picked up a camera until you realized it was something you could do for a living?
MAS: My family and I moved to Vermont 13 years ago, we lived there for 3 years before moving to Park City UT where it became home for us. I fell in love with the beauty of Utah and started to take pictures, photography classes and it quickly became a passion, almost an obsession. I love taking pictures of wildlife and landscape. I can't leave home without my camera. We also have a place in San Francisco, where I love to walk everywhere and I'm discovering another passion for city pictures.
PW: What type of content/subject matter inspires you the most when snapping photos?
MAS: My friends kept telling me how they loved my pictures, so I started to have some printed on canvas, on sheets of metal and on wood. I now sell more and more pictures and I'm very very proud of it.
PW: You recently ordered a custom print of a stunning photograph you captured of what appears to be a lovely (brightly colored) village. Can you give us some insight into this location and why it inspired you?
MAS: The custom print picture I ordered from Plywerk was taken in downtown Park City in Utah, during the winter season. This small ski resort town is very important for me since it became home. It kept its "little miner town" charm and is absolutely beautiful 4 seasons a year.
PW: As a loyal Plywerk customer who was familiar with the company before it’s transition, what about our new production process stood out the most when you first received your new print?
MAS: The result of the print on wood is absolutely beautiful, both my client and I are very happy with it. I will of course continue to order beautiful prints from Plywerk. Your team has been amazing and did a great job, since it was a special size of print. The quality of the print pleased me as much as it was when I placed order before the transition.
Thank you Marie, always a pleasure.
