Polk loves to photograph landscapes as well as portraits. She grew up in the outdoors working with horses, which she continues to do and many of her pictures have been captured from the saddle. She creates dramatic portraits by using the light to guide the eye to the subject. Weddings offer her the opportunity to capture people on one of the biggest days of their lives and she truly welcomes the challenge of capturing those special moments that so often occur in difficult lighting situations. Photography still gives Polk the same thrill it did as child, in fact the thrill is more intense now as she better understands her medium, she states, “With technology, the right gear, some good old fashioned know-how and a little intuition I’m getting images I had only dreamed of previously.”

Always Searching For The Shot

My love for photography started as a child and has only increased throughout the years.  As a professional I now meet and study with the best in the business.  I love participating in classes, clinics, lectures and competitions to learn the finer points, techniques and tips to be able to be even more creative.  I enjoy being a member of PPA: Professional Photographers of America, PPC: Professional Photographers of Colorado, IPPA: Intermountain Professional Photographers Association.

“When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.”
“There is only you and your camera. The limitations in your photography are in yourself, for what we see is what we are.”
“Black and white are the colors of photography. They symbolize the alternatives of hope and despair to which mankind is subjected.”
