Anne Belmont-Lensbaby
Anne Belmont
z

As a nature photographer specializing in flower photography, Anne’s greatest passion lies in seeing and capturing the beauty of flowers and botanicals up-close. It is the small, often unnoticed details that draw Anne to her subjects – the lines, patterns, textures, curves and unique personality of each subject. It is her belief that if we slow down and look at nature in a more contemplative way, we will find subjects that convey impact and emotion.

With a lifelong involvement in the arts and a deep love of nature that started in childhood, photography became a perfect way for Anne to share her vision of the natural world with others. She has been photographing since she was given her first camera at the age of ten. Her career as an art therapist reinforced her belief in the healing power of both art and nature. Anne’s goal as an educator is to help others see in new ways, unleash their creativity and bring their heart into their photography.
Anne is a team member and instructor for Out of Chicago Photography - www.outofchicago.com. She also presents at conferences throughout the country and teaches private workshops. As a Lensbaby Ambassador, she is passionate about using and teaching others about their creative lenses to enhance artistry and bring emotion into their work. She is firmly committed to the idea that we should never stop learning, growing, experimenting and having fun with photography.

When I work with macro photography or portraits, my Edge 80 always leaves me with great satisfaction, the softness of the blurs where I select that I want the blur and at the same time the incredible definition it gives in the focused areas, has made my photographs always leave me and my clients happy. I love working with a gear that identifies me and allows me to have an original style, because I achieve results that only this optician can give me.

Carol Vipperman is a Seattle, Washington-based photographer. I started taking my camera with me on my daily walks around my neighborhood and found that I loved taking photos of flowers. My first and lasting joy is capturing the energy and personality that exists in each flower. My photography has opened up my creativity in surprising ways. I look for the energy and personality in everyday things, such as boat reflections on Lake Union, light bouncing off buildings, neighborhood pets, or the local classic 1949 Studebaker truck. Everything has the possibility of becoming art.

I started taking photographs with an old Zenit B and a Helios 44 lens that belonged to a friend in about 1972. When I went to University, I started B&W developing and printing because I was a photographer for the student paper.

I studied engineering and photography was a hobby, developing and printing in the bathrooms of various houses until I returned to university and became a lecturer, first in the Mathematics department and, later, in the Art School teaching Sound engineering, cinematography and photography.

Lensbaby came into my life in 2014 when I was looking for a way to get similar effects to freelensing without the damage to the cameras that it caused. I retired in 2018 and moved to France where I spend a lot of time doing photography and woodwork. We are doing some house renovations and I built my first real darkroom in the old barn where I have two enlargers and the ability to investigate old processes like Cyanotype and alternative processes like Caffenol. I now use mainly Nikon mirrorless cameras.

I met Craig Strong at a Photography Show in 2017 and in 2019, at the same Photography show, I was invited to be one of the staff on the Lensbaby stand. I have a fairly extensive collection of Lensbabies from one of the first, hand built ones to the latest Spark 2.

Born in Detroit, Michigan, Deb Schwedhelm was originally trained as a Registered Nurse and subsequently spent 10 years employed as an Air Force Nurse. Although she has been passionate about photography since her early 20s, it wasn't until Deb left the military that she was finally able to pursue the medium as a full-time career.

Deb’s work is a visual memoir that narrates the self actualization of an artist. Deb’s use of storytelling depicts a lifetime of arrivals and departures. Her work dances with a primal vulnerability and divine mystery. Each transition in her photography opens a new chapter of the story, giving a visual voice to the storyteller.

 

Deb's photographs have been exhibited widely and selected for multiple private and permanent collections. She has been featured and interviewed in numerous publications throughout the world. Deb has received awards from Slow Exposures, The Center for Fine Art Photography, Texas Photographic Society, PhotoNOLA, MPLS Photo Center, The Perfect Exposures Gallery, A. Smith Gallery, Santa Fe Photographic Workshops, and The Art of Photography Show. Most notably, Deb’s work was featured on CNN, she received first prize in PhotoNola’s portfolio review, and she was named one of the Top 50 in Critical Mass.

After 25 years of relocating their home every couple of years with the military, Deb’s husband retired from the Navy in 2019. Deb and her family reside in Williamsburg, Virginia, but she hopes to be living on a sailboat, traveling the Americas, in the next five years.

“Lensbaby inspires me to create art in a way that speaks to my soul.”

Photography is my passion. It gives me the creative outlet I need to feed my soul. I am inspired by the beauty of nature, whether it be a gorgeous seascape, woodland forest, colorful sunset or detail of a flower. I especially love macro photography because it forces me to slow down, study details and capture the beauty of things that may often be overlooked. One of my favorite things to do is use one of my Lensbaby lenses along with a creative technique such as shooting through a prism, a piece of copper pipe or one of the Omni filters.
I also love photographing our furry friends. As a veterinarian, I know that our pets add so much love and joy to our families. I enjoy capturing their personalities and little details that make them unique.
Although a New Yorker at heart, my home is now in beautiful Southern Oregon where I live with my family and two spoiled rotten felines.
