Horsing Around Blog Post by Shelly Priest Photography

Welcome to my photographic life…

My photographic journey began more than 40 years ago when my dad bought me my first camera …… a Kodak 110 Instamatic. That summer I won an award at our local fair for a photo of a black swan I took while on vacation. I was hooked and my camera became my 5th appendage.

Primarily self-taught, I decided to gain some formal training in 2011 by achieving a Certificate in Photography from Mount Royal University in Calgary. With my photography, I have enjoyed the life-long learning aspect. There is always something to improve on or learn.

After many years of serving others with my family and sports photography, I am now sharing my fine art photography with the world. With this venture, I want to share my experiences with you through this blog.
