Featured Artist Ami Poindexter

This weeks featured artist is photographer Ami Poindexter who had this to say to us:

Hi, My name is Ami Poindexter and I am a Fine Art Photographer currently residing in West Jordan, Utah. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for nearly 19 years and we are raising two wonderful boys together.

Photography hasn’t always been in my life. It wasn’t until 2004 when I received a 35mm Nikon SLR for Christmas. I remember stepping outside and looking through the viewfinder for the first time, a whole new world came into focus. One filled with beauty, beauty in the most ordinary places and things. I started to see things in a new light, and I began to see light in new ways. I spent the next few days in the freezing cold weather and loving every minute of it; it didn’t take long for me to use the 5 rolls of film that came with my camera. After a few years, I started thinking of ways I could take my photography to the next level.

So, In 2014 I earned my Associate of Art Degree in Photography from the Academy of Art University. During my studies there I was able to explore many different genres, which allowed me to discover, refine, and expand my vision as an artist.

In developing my own personal style I discovered a love for Landscapes, Nature, and Still Life. I often prefer a more minimalistic approach to my subjects and finding a unique perspective. I am so inspired by the softness of Pictorial Photography that I frequently employ a shallow depth of field in my Landscapes. I also enjoy using some techniques of the time, which can be seen in my Not Just a Flower series. By shooting through glass covered with different substances I was able to achieve various intriguing results.

My vision for my work is to create memorable images that people will be talking about for years to come and to share with them the beauty I see in the ordinary, as well as the extraordinary.
