About Me:
My name is Amelia Bartlett, I'm 20, and I'm currently a college student finishing up an AA degree in general studies, simply for the sake of doing it. I've been studying photography in the field for nearly 10 years and have been shooting professionally for nearly 2 years. I try to find beauty in all things and live the most balanced and healthy lifestyle I can in each moment. Photography is my passion and I believe that if you can share your passion with others, your passion will not only be what drives you, but what feeds and shelters you as well. I can only hope to touch as many people as I can with whatever I can offer them, including my photography services, knowledge, or just my friendship.

As a photographer, I have a specific style that has developed over years of trying and failing and succeeding and learning photographing people. I haven't much interest in photographing models unless the pay is good, and I don't desire to stand a family in a straight line and ask them to say cheese. I want my pictures to speak to you the way a film speaks to you, minus the dialogue.
I want to give my subjects a safe place to feel and be free of whatever they're harboring inside, to give it to the camera so that they may keep it as a souvenir of the past, but as nothing more. I have always found that openly feeling and feeling without being judged is the best emotional therapy, and while many may not think they need it, it never hurts.
My style is neither portraiture or art photography, but realism and emotion set free.

For most shoots, I shoot with my beloved Nikon D3100 and my small collection of lenses: Nikkor 35mm f/1.8, Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6, Nikkor 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6, and Nikkor 50mm f/1.8.

Note: I do not do any studio shooting, I do not own a studio, and I will not do or own any studio shots at any time. It's my personal preference to shoot outside in nature with natural light and energy.
