Portrait photographer Krista Pascoe talks about how she stumbled into photography at Denfeld and has turned a long-time hobby into a career.
KP: I am a local professional photographer specializing in portrait work. My main focus is weddings, seniors, families and sports. I came into photography by accident a long time ago. When I was attending Duluth Denfeld, I was accidently put into the yearbook class due to a scheduling error. They tossed me on the photography team. Back then, we used chemicals and dark rooms to develop our work, and I was immediately intrigued with the process. As digital has come along, I view the advancements in photography technology a nice complement to the artistic side of my work. I enjoy all aspects of photography from the people, the creativity, the editing and post-processing. I even do some graphic design at the end stages.
I’ve been taking pictures for over 30 years, but have only recently taken the deep dive to make it an official business about seven years ago.
As a photographer who uses outdoor backdrops, our weather can be a challenge sometimes in the way of scheduling client’s session times. Although our spectacular array of woods, trails, lakes, rivers, streams, and even urban backdrops make up for it. One of the biggest rewards I experience over and over again, is when I unveil a client’s gallery to them and they love what they see. Lastly, I have made some life-long friends through photography – it’s a skill and hobby that almost anyone can get into and I love being inspired by other local photo artists.
At this point in the year, I’m always a bit tired, and look forward to using the cold months of January through March to rest and reboot. My family is glad to have me home for a change! I also take this time to update my site, learn new techniques with my software and equipment, and meet with potential clients for the upcoming year or two. Happily, I am meeting with couples who are booking me for 2019 weddings and events.
