Welcome to my new blog... this one is all about me and my artwork. You can view my main site at www.addietalley.com or my earlier work at www.talleyimages.blogspot.com, but this one is about shooting what I want. Its the images that I have been inspired to create... something new, something different. This will be the place for all my best work because these are mine. You can email me at addietalley@mail.com at any time!

This is my daughter Emma... I did these for her 4 year old birthday. Shortly after I had Emma, a friend introduced me to Belle and Boo by giving me a card of theirs - I instantly fell in love and framed it. Its been on Emma's wall since then. I knew I wanted to replicate that card with Emma one day and I figured now was the time... especially since I had discovered an abandoned building with the perfect light... i knew it had to be now.

This was the very first frame - I was just checking levels, but it has become one of my favorite pictures... I even had it printed up on a huge canvas.IMG_1992-2jpg by talleyimages
This is what I wanted from the beginning...

First Post.

Well, I guess I need to introduce myself first...

My name is Addie. I am a photographer... not just a photographer, but its my passion.... and its pretty much ruined how I look at most anything now - I cant watch a movie without wondering about the composition, read a magazine without looking for any tell-tale photoshop signs... even go anywhere without wondering what it would be like to shoot there.

Im kind of weird... a cynic, a freak... whatever. I love what most people would deem un-normal... I love tattoos and rainbow colored hair, I think goth kids are beautiful and piercings are cool. I also love cute, cute things and most anything Japanese in nature (including alot of anime). I love abandoned buildings and overgrown forests and both are probably some of my favorite spots to shoot. You will probably notice alot of these elements in my work, a certain dark whimsy...

Alot of times, I shoot for other people... which is great. I love my clients - you can view my commercial work at http://www.talleyimages.blogspot.com/ but shooting for other people usually doesnt delve deep enough into my creative side. So... this is what will be on this blog.... when I come up with something crazy in my head, I try my best to put it down through my art.... I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
