Celeb Class this May '09: Rachel Greig

.

as promised, here's Rachel Greig and what she has to say about herself :

{ and err... when she says her work has been featured in numerous publications she actually meant A WHOLE LOT! Scroll... scroll... scroll RIGHT down and uh huh you will see what I mean. }
.
Who I am?
.
I'm a professional photographer & artist, owner of Darkroom Door and have worked in the publishing and creative arts field for 18 years. My photographs have been used for magazine articles, books, layouts, cards and have won many awards, including Master of Scrapbooking (Scrapbooking Memories), and the Australian Photography Kodak Award.

I have authored many articles for photography and papercrafts magazines, including 4 years at My Reflections magazine, 1 year at Scrapbooking Memories magazine and currently writing photography articles for Scrapbook Creations magazine.

My photographs have also featured on a range of scrapbooking and papercraft products for Darkroom Door, Stamp-It Australia and Personal Impressions UK. I am Australia’s only Ranger Inks and Embossing Certified Instructor and enjoy sharing techniques and ideas by teaching at papercraft conventions throughout the world.

.

What do I do?

My photography style is very eclectic. I work regularly with still life, travel and portraiture, in both colour and black & white. While I love digital photography, there is still something about the pure magic of my black and white darkroom, so I tend to swing on both sides of the traditional and digital fields. My creative layouts, cards and other items are often a mixture of photography, stamping, and art techniques. Sometimes simple, sometimes detailed, my work varies depending on the products or techniques being used. I love using rubber stamps, and tend to use them a lot in my work. I enjoy trying out new ideas, and often up to my elbows in photographs and ink to create the look I'm after, and loving every minute of it!

My scrapbooking and papercraft projects have been featured in numerous publications, adverts, manufacturer websites and trade show displays. Listed below are the publications I have been published in within the craft industry.
