Photo taken by- Deb McGwin
Based out of Rochester, Ny
Born and raised in Rochester, NY...Graduated from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh with a degree in Visual Communications.
Over the past 20 years I had the privilege of working at a local ad agency, with some of the top commercial photographers. I believed that variety is in fact, the spice of life, as my work encompassed a wide range of design disciplines from illustration and photography to corporate identity and publication design. As creative director we began a local greeting card company, designing and producing hundreds of successful greeting cards that had national distribution.
But at the same time I realized 4 years ago there still was another chapter in my life needing to unfold, thus... "Deb McGwin Photo and Design" evolved! I am now a self taught portrait photographer who specializes in people. Fun people. Unique people. Beautiful people. Everything from newborns to high school seniors to families. I pride myself in the fact that I not only create beautiful images but I strive to capture their souls.
Photography is an extension of my perspective on life. I see moments and I capture them – it's as simple as that. I strive to keep it real... I let the moments play and just record them as they happen.
They say that life comes down to a few great moments...and as a portrait photographer these are events that people cherish for many years to come and I am blessed to be able to capture those moments for my clients.
This image was shot with my canon mark 5Diii at the George Eastman House in Rochester. The autumn leaves created a gorgeous backdrop - perfect for capturing this lovely girl as she celebrates a milestone in her life, the changing of the leaves truly reflect the stages of life and the wondrous journey that lies ahead.
