Jadyn Firehawk Photography - Christmas in July Exhibit at the OZLAND Art Gallery

Jadyn Firehawk is a professional geographer & amateur photographer. Born in the Philippines she now lives in Texas.

She believes the mind behind the camera is more important then the quality of the camera. Her photos are taken with a Canon PowerShot point-n-shoot digital camera. She's tried a better camera but keeps reverting to her trusty point-n-shoot. She's concluded it's better to have a small camera in her purse at all times, than a fancy camera at home when she needs to capture a spontaneous shot the moment it catches her eye.

Living with bipolar disorder has given an intensity to her vision of the way she sees the world.  Most people see things in pictures, she sees pictures in things. She loves to photograph things in daily life "as is" without any staging. Once she started looking for "as is" pictures, the world around her got more interesting and beautiful.

Visit her Christmas in July exhibit at the OZLAND Art Gallery for the month of July and take home the free gift that Jadyn has made!
