Featured Photographer - September 2012

Penny Schwartz As an incorrigible world traveler, I am drawn to vibrant vistas and colorful cultures. Photographing these scenes and people has become a natural extension of my fascination with worlds different from my own. My work as a freelance writer involves describing what I experience in words, while photography tells the same story wordlessly and in a different way. I have photographed in such remote places as Central Asia and Tibet as well as closer locales such as Big Sur, Bryce Canyon and Sedona, Arizona. My penchant is for people, the more colorfully and unusually adorned the better. However, a photo safari to Africa introduced me to quite a few animals whose likenesses now number among my favorite images. For many years, I combined my writing and photography interests in my “Yellow Brick Road” local travel column for the Redlands Daily Facts. For that newspaper, I also photographed food to accompany a series of restaurant reviews. I continue to illustrate my feature articles and artist profiles for the Press-Enterprise newspaper with my own photographs. Photography classes at UCR Extension and the Redlands Adult School (with Frank Peele) have helped to hone my skills, but improvement is a continuing goal as I try to develop my own unique visual view of the world.
