Serena Davidson Photography

As a fourth generation professional photographer I have been taking photographs since the age of seven and photographed my first wedding at age nineteen. Being a professional photographer has put me onto the football field with Sports Illustrated, onto the basketball court with the Sonics, on a photo-shoot with Jane Goodall, into fine art technique discussion with Keith Carter, on a pig farm before sunrise with Bob Peterson, documenting the Amazon.com Japan site launch celebration, simulating beach waves in a pool in Phoenix, shooting publicity photos for musicians in Manhattan, and photographing numerous performance artists from around the world for PICA including an astounding performance by Diamanda Galas. I work with a variety of cameras and processing techniques — from large-format to digital, archival prints to Polaroids.

What moves me to pursue this crazy career is capturing people in a genuine expression. It's always a wonderful feeling to photograph someone who hates having their photo taken and showing them that it is possible for them to have a photograph of themselves they can love.

Let's get this blog kickin'!

Okay Portland PUG People "P3" for short...wait, that might get confused with the P3 payment system! Dangit! Any ideas? hah

Those who've attended any of the 3 PUG meetings thus far should have recieved an invite to become a member of this blog. As a team member, you can post whenever you like. Becoming a team member is as easy as creating a free Blogger account if you don't have one already, then accept the invitation I sent you.

I figure the best way to get this blog going is if each of us posts a short bio/studio profile or whatever you want to say. It'd be great if you could include a link to your website and a picture in your post to help everyone learn who's who! I'll also add that link to the sidebar once you've posted. If you have any questions feel free to ask me.

This is gonna be an awesome tool! See ya around!
