Today we’d like to introduce you to Sari Beall.
Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
I am a college student with a passion for photography and writing. The goal with my photography is to evoke emotion and tell a story. It all started with senior portraits back in high school. After taking a few photos of friends, I realized I had a vision and potential talent for the arts. I chose a science path in college; however, I never gave up my love for photography. Throughout the years, I have gone on international trips to Italy and South Africa, further exploring my passion for photography and traveling. I’m now in my early twenties and about to graduate from the University of Texas at Austin. I’d say my photography has evolved since I started taking senior portraits. I now enjoy other types of photography, such as fashion and landscape. I’ve learned that I don’t have to be put in a box when it comes to my passions or talents. The whole point of being creative is to think outside the box. I want to do it all – be a photographer, model, stylist, and videographer. I’m always challenging myself to create more and better content. And lastly, whenever I feel discouraged in my work or in a creative rut, I like to go back to the beginning. The beginning looks like a photograph of the beach in my hometown of Galveston, TX. It is there that I feel at home and it is there where I am humbled. I can’t wait to create more magic through my photography in the years to come!
Please tell us about your art.
I am a photographer based in Texas. I love to shoot portraits and landscapes. Portrait photography is inspiring to me because through it, I can tell a story. I get to connect with others and capture precious moments in time that can be cherished forever. Landscape photography is inspiring to me because it shows me the beautiful planet we call Earth. I am also passionate about environmental conservation and I hope that through my landscape pictures, people will see the beauty that we need to protect.
What do you think is the biggest challenge facing artists today?
I think the biggest challenge facing artists today would be respect for their craft. I sometimes feel I do not get compensated enough for the work I put in. Some clients do not understand how much work is happening behind the scenes for the photographer.
