All About Me - Phyllis Peterson

I’ve been around photography my whole life.   At home growing I learned to film development in a darkroom. I can't remember what my first camera was but I used it on my friends and family.  I especially enjoyed making scrapbooks out of my photographs as a youngster.  My husband Bob and I raised 4 boys and I photographed my children in all their activities and I made a photo albums for every year. 

In the about the year 2002 I got Olympus digital camera and I knew that I wanted to learn as much as I could about taking photos.  In my spare time from my main profession which was  teaching Life Science and Biology I would learn as much as I could. With a natural affinity to animals and plants, I enjoy photographing them.  Most of my photography is in landscape or nature, with an interest in macro or flower photography.

I have experience with portrait photography and be sure to look at my portrait gallery.

I am currently living in Maricopa, Arizona and I photograph events for a local   magazine. I currently belong to the Province Photography Club and the Sun Lakes Camera Club here in the Phoenix area. Over the years I have been fortunate to win numerous awards for my photography and my images have been published in a number of publications. I enjoy sharing my knowledge with other aspiring photographers.

All of my photos are for sale. Please contact me for more information on prints and on flower notes cards.  

I would love to hear your comments!
