Meet an Artist Fellow: Photographer, Wisteria Warren

We created our Artist Fellowship Program to help creative people find the space and inspiration they need to bring their ideas to life. Earlier this year, we hosted photographer, Wisteria Warren, at Getaway Mount Adams outside of Portland. Here’s what she had to say about her creative process, her relationship to nature, and her Getaway:

On Photography
I’ve been a photographer for over 10 years, currently I serve as a wedding photographer. My husband and I live in Austin, TX and both have a love for travel and adventure. As a photographer, light is everything. And believe it or not, light is different on the West coast. I felt inspired to play with shadows during the golden light (as you can see in some of my photos). 

On Nature and Recharging
Nature is where I feel most at peace. It’s where I can escape the hustle, and be intentional and recharge. My husband and I even got married in Yosemite so that we could draw away from the hustle to be intimately united. You can’t help but be present when you’re in nature, and you can’t pour out what you don’t have. Making sure I recharge means that I can pour the best parts of me into my art. 

On Disconnecting
Our Getaway was exactly what I needed to feel rested, inspired, and recharged. Getting time in nature away from my phone where there isn’t even cell service forced me to be present.
