behind the lens
Hey people! I'm Marisa. I create photos as an outlet for all of my artistic energy. I would describe my artist style as clear, feminine, and vibrant.
I studied photography at the University of South Carolina, where I began to learn the ins and outs of the darkroom and shooting with 35mm, 120mm, and 4X5 film. I was honored to have my work accepted into the 6th Annual USC Photo Festival juried by Roger May and the 9th Annual USC Photo Festival juried by Meghan Gould.
I am local to the Charleston area, and even though I have lived here for 13 years, I still discover new and amazing photo locations every day while I explore the city. I am also a make-up and fashion enthusiast and have an incredible love for animals. So much love that I currently have two dogs, a cat, and a snake at home. They keep me company while I edit.
This is what I LOVE to do in life. Thank you to anyone and everyone that supports my endeavors. I hope you find something here that inspires you or makes you think and feel!
