Randi Wolf's Profile

About

From the time I was a little girl, I was always the family photographer. Many of the old pictures in our photo albums don't have me in them, because I was the one taking the pictures!

I studied photography in-depth at college and fell deeply in love with it as an art form. I remember spending endless hours in the darkroom with the intoxicating smell of Fixer and Stop Bath.

I struggled with my decision as to whether to concentrate on becoming a professional photographer or a graphic designer. I decided on the latter for two reasons.

I struggled with my decision as to whether to concentrate on becoming a professional photographer or a graphic designer. I decided on the latter for two reasons. First, photography supplies, equipment and renting a studio were extremely expensive back then. And moreover, I thought I could always incorporate photography into my graphic design work. I went on to receive a Masters Degree from Pratt Institute. As an Ad Agency Art Director, I hired and worked with hundreds of professional photographers through the years. I was continually fascinated with their work.

Then, in 2006, I had an idea to create a B&W photographic calendar about my small town, called "A Gallery of Glassboro." I sold about 650 of them that year, and it seems as if this piece got my work "discovered," and suddenly I was getting hired to do professional photography! I've made a couple of more calendars since then, and have donated $3,750.00 from the sales to local organizations and to students for college scholarships.

It brings me great pleasure and self-satisfaction that I am able to combine both of these interests into one career. You can visit my professional graphic design website:
