Folsom resident Michele McCormick is a widely published photographer. She studied photography at Northwestern University, and her early career was in photojournalism.
After a career detour into public relations, she returned to photography and entered the fine arts arena in 2010. Her images have since been frequently exhibited and recognized. In 2015 her work was included in the prestigious Crocker Kingsley show and the fine arts division of the California State Fair. It has also been included in juried shows at venues including Los Angeles 1650 Gallery, Portland’s Black Box Gallery, Roseville’s Blue Line Gallery, Viewpoint Photographic Art Center, and a variety of venues and events in the Sacramento region.
Michele’s commercial commissions have included landscape,nature and portraiture. In addition, her photojournalistic work has appeared in many publications and has illustrated calendars, artist brochures and books internationally.
My objective is to create images that connect with viewers, evoking interest and emotion. Photography’s challenge is that the camera cannot truly reflect what the eye sees, or the mood it inspires. It is exciting to capture and manage images so that those impressions are powerful and true to the vision of the photographer. This is an elusive goal, but one which today’s technology begins to make possible in newly interesting ways.
