Wendi Roberts, Photography

Wendi was born in the UK and has travelled extensively. Photography has always had a big place in her life since being given an Olympus Trip 35 when she was 8 years old. Since then her camera was always there to record the amazing places she has visited and people she has met along the way.

She studied photography and darkroom skills back in the UK which gave her the foundation for her present career. The time spent in the darkroom cemented her growing fascination with light, shade and form and what makes a good image, especially black and white photography.

Wendi finds inspiration in the natural environment and those little moments of wonder and beauty in the most everyday events and objects. She feels that is the gift of photography; it makes you stop and look, it draws your attention to that which is seen as mundane and at times ugly and renders it amazing. Today Wendi works on corporate/ business projects, portraiture and personal projects.
