Natalie Arriola's Profile

About

I am a California based fine art photographer. My photographs have many subjects. I create modern landscape and nature photographs, as well as portraits, still life, and conceptual work.

As a photographer I am an observer. I stand on the outside looking in. I take in the world, it's people, and objects and I try to find unique ways of viewing and representing them through the lens of my camera. My camera is a tool I use to create my own vision.

As a photographer I am an observer. I stand on the outside looking in. I take in the world, it's people, and objects and I try to find unique ways of viewing and representing them through the lens of my camera. My camera is a tool I use to create my own vision.

I am also a voyeur. I have always been a somewhat withdrawn personality. I find more comfort in introspection than communication. I am fascinated by people, but I often find myself capturing them secretively. My favorite portraits are often ones of distant, far away subjects or moments when I caught the subject off guard.

Finally I am a philosopher. It sounds quite lofty to call oneself a philosopher, but I do not preach my philosophies or attempt to pass them off as truths. I simply like to theorize about the meaning of people's actions in the world and how they perceive and understand that world. Many of my photographs are essays on these musings.

There are only two things in this world that truly make me happy and those are my friends and family and photography. I am a firm believer that the key to a happy life is to surround yourself with the people you love and do whatever it is you are passionate about. I am here in hopes that I can share my passion for photography with you and make some new friends along the way.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments by clicking on the "contact" link on the left side of this page. I would love to hear from you!

Each of my photographs is something special in that it is genuine. The art I create comes from the heart and soul of who I am. It is my attempt at making sense of the world. I never create art that does not come from a place of honest thought and feeling. I do not create my art out of pretense nor do I give it worldly aims. I put myself into my art and hope that others will find something they can identify with there too.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you like what you see!
