Feature Friday! KATYA LAROCHE FROM LOSTLOGO

Yep! That’s right! TGIF! 🙂
We have a photographer today! Katya Laroche from Lostlogo! Wonderful pictures! This is her first feature ever! Let’s celebrate it with lots of encouraging comments! 🙂
I will let Katya tell you guys about her art and herself!

For my photos, travelling is my main inspiration. Me and my boyfriend have been travelling full time in a travel trailer since late 2009 and before that I travelled in Mexico and Argentina. Most places we stay are naturally photogenic and offer thousands of scenes, towns, junk yards and details many take for granted. I especially love abandoned buildings, rarely navigated trails and roads, gnarled trees and naturally striking textures.  In cities, I love people watching (and people’s pets watching). There are a million photos of a historic building, national parks and famous people, but only one of a total stranger or animal doing something interesting.

I started taking photos in high school and haven’t put down a camera since. I mostly shoot film but my digital SLR is handy for blogging and travel logging, and it impresses me from time to time. I shoot colour and black and white but always love the mood that black and white gives off.
 
My style has always been about how I see things, not intended to be some kind of exact representation of reality, or even a surreal one, just mine. My huge range of subject matter means I’ve never really found a niche, which is really fine with me, though making a living selling my photos would be amazing.
Right now I sell on etsy and my own website but would eventually like to do some shows if we ever stop travelling long enough.

Aren’t these photos remarkable? I know I would LOVE to have the one of the Ghost cabin framed in my house!I also like this one very much!

My featured artists will go on to be featured on three more blogs this month. First on  Louise’s blog, then on  Karen’s blog, and then on the Indie Mosaic blog! So you get maximum exposure! Since we all do different things you will reach different readers on each of our blogs and you really get your name out there! It’s really great. And best of all: It’s free!

    • 🙂 So glad you like it! Aren’t the photos amazing? LOVE them!! We haven’t had sunshine in over a week (nearly two now). The sun came out for a few hours on Sunday afternoon (around 6-ish) and on another afternoon before that, but that is it these past two weeks… I love it though! 🙂
