Ella at Magnolia Plantation

One of the many joys in my life is teaching and inspiring others who share my love for the art of photography.

This weekend I had the priviledge of mentoring Ella Crawford as she shadowed me for her 8th grade career day project in school. Since she loves wildlife, we spent the afternoon at Magnolia Plantation and it’s amazing Audubon Swamp Garden.  This beautiful young lady is more mature than most high-schoolers I know. She has a deep passion for art in its many forms. And she DEFINITELY has a gift!!!

Thank you for spending your afternoon with me, Ella! I wish you all the happiness in the world as you follow your heart and fulfill your dreams, whatever they may be.

    She had such an incredible experience Chris! We've since discussed several practical tips you've given her - especially regarding the "art" side - and she's excited to take these photographs and personalize them through her gift with the pencil. The peacock has especially inspired her to break away from her charcoals and use color. Your patience, counsel, and allowing her to use your equipment was priceless. Thank you doesn't seem adequate. We appreciate it greatly.
