I am Amy Helmick. I have engaged in some form of photography since the early 1990s when I decided to take my first formal college class. Over the years I have studied darkroom, alternative processes, street photography and portraiture.
In 2016, I decided it was time to learn off camera lighting and become more proficient with post-processing. The photographic medium fascinates me and I am always learning an endeavoring to create meaningful pieces in whatever genre' I'm shooting.
I have dedicated the past few years to mastery of the craft. There's always new knowledge to be gained and skills to acquire. While I don't think of myself as a "technical" photographer in the work I produce, I do feel the need for proficiency in order to adequately present my work.
Photography is an art with unlimited potential for communication, healing, joy as well as the more practical aspects of marketing and selling. I don't believe I will ever tire of its study.
