Summit Artspace

February 19, 2024

I am a photographer and local artist.  When I started my journey as a photographer 17 years ago, I faced a lot of doubts both internally and externally.   The choice to pursue your talents and art as a career can be very daunting.  I left a career in Information Technology, with a regular paycheck and health insurance to pursue my own creative talents through my photography business.  To a lot of people, that just didn’t make sense.  Why leave a perfectly good job to pursue photography when there is no guarantee of income?  Why not stay in a ‘safe’ job where you know that you will have a check each week?  And the worst – why don’t you stick with a ‘real job’?  I persisted and was very fortunate to find a network of photographers who supported each other early on in my new career.  But it was a challenge.  Self-doubts were always there – did I make the right decision? What will I do if things slow down?  I am happy to say that with the support and encouragement of other like-minded artists, I found to courage to persevere and have not looked back since.   These last 17 years have been filled with amazing clients and adventures. 

Last year I learned about Summit Artspace https://www.summitartspace.org/
which is a local non-profit organization that helps artists just like myself. Summit Artspace connects local artists not only with each other but with resources to help them be successful.  Summit Artspace not only helps the artist, but it also is invaluable in bringing art to the community.   This year I joined the Board at Summit Artspace so that I can help ensure that the work they do continues to support not only the artists but also the community that they serve.  Having support, connection and an outlet for one’s art is invaluable.  It elevates the entire community.  And having an organization that helps you to pursue your dream and talent is priceless.
