Natalie Bolea Photography | About
“Photography is my passion.” -Alfred Stieflitz

I fell into photography by mere coincidence: a coworker was selling his used dSLR and shortly after, a friend asked me to take an Intro to Photography course together. Soon I was captivated by the art of photography and have been unable to stop since.

“The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera .” -Dorothea Lange

I grew up in Pittsburgh, PA and have lived in Rome, Italy, Baltimore, MD and Washington, DC. Living in all four cities has greatly influenced how I see the world. However, there has been no greater influence than to see life through a lens whether or not I have my camera with me. People, expressions, places, and ordinary objects that would have normally gone unnoticed now make large and lasting impressions.

“You don’t take a photograph, you make it." -Ansel Adams

What I love about photography is the ability to make a person or place look as it never did before. I love to capture moods and movement in portraits and to make a place you may have walked by hundreds of times stand out differently.

I would love to share my passion and would be happy to create these same experiences for you. Contact me to learn more.
