Happiness in life is all about finding your passion... Mine is Photography. What's Yours?

Hi! I'm Renee Matthews and I LOVE making photos! I was recently called "Peter Parker" by an old friend because I don't leave home without my trusty sidekick - my Canon DSLR, and I do walk around the city of New York (or any other city I happen to be in at the time) taking photos. I have recently relocated to the Queen City - Charlotte North Carolina and I can't wait to venture out and view all this great city has to offer.

I was introduced to photography when I was just 8 years old, when my Dad, a semi-professional photographer, bought me my first camera - a Kodak 110 instamatic! He would be very happy to know that I was listening when he was explaining the concepts of shutter speed, ISO and Aperture. I love and miss you Daddy - and Thanks.

I have always enjoyed taking photos, but I found true passion upon removing my SLR from the box! The quality and difference in my images changed instantly. I began to see things differently and now I realize that beauty is all around me. My fascination with photography is renewed on a daily basis with every shot of every new face, plant, insect, landscape, drop of water, flower or any other beautiful subject I can find...

Having people pose for pictures is good, but I feel that capturing people in their natural state - thinking, talking, walking or just doing whatever it is that people do on a daily basis is best! I love to catch the special moments that tug at your heart.

Photography for me is identifying a great subject, finding the best source of light and marrying the two to create amazing images.
