Toni Paisley's Profile

About

A young girl gazed upon the stars and thought to herself "So few notice your beauty, your serenity, your light. Your simplicity by the ocean, your enchantment by the sea, your mockery of the fireflies by the meadows I've seen. I shall set out on my journey, wild and free, as I am not bound to be perfect, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live up to what light I might have. For I haven’t a clue how my story will end, but that’s alright. When you set out on a journey and night covers the road, that’s when you discover the stars.”

Hello! I'm Toni Chanelle Paisley. My photography can be found in private collections across North America, Australia, and Europe. Aside from being a photographer, I am also an artist, musician, writer, and guest speaker. I find it impossible to define myself as one, as they each intertwine like vines on a fence -picking one would destroy them all. Despite that, I can define my source of inspiration and style in one word: simplicity. I was drawn to that as a young artist, but feel my most recent work portrays that more successfully. I like to use unique and interesting angles and try my hardest to achieve a calm, thought-provoking emotion in my work. At times, I also try to achieve a vintage, storybook charm with the appeal of not being too ‘over the top’. I began photographing on my parent’s Minolta film camera. Learning photography with film taught me to make each shot count. Considered by some an obstacle, I became aware of the emotion of a scene. This flowed into my art, allowing me to begin exhibiting my work internationally at age 14. I just truly love every aspect of life! I love quiet fall evenings, reading essays, cups of hot chocolate, enthralling novels, quoting outstanding historical figures, and a perfect pen that writes just right!

I hope you enjoy viewing my work and I greatly look forward to working with you in the future! Feel free to drop me an email.
I'd love to hear from you! -Toni Chanelle
