Writers, particularly fiction writers, tend to be creative people, and many of us pursue other creative outlets. For instance, Cynthia, my editor, makes custom Barbie dresses for collectors along with custom jewelry. She has an online store called, Victorian West.
I happen to love photography. I got my first camera when I was ten, and I’ve been taking photos ever since. Perhaps this is the reason why some of the characters in my contemporary romance novels, such as Carrie Daniels in The Deception, and Danny Woodruff, in The Letter are photographers. I’ve even shared some of my photos on this blog. So, after much thought, I’ve decided to take my photography to the next level and make my work available to the public.
However, before we go any further, I need to let you know that for branding purposes I do different things under different names, and I do my photography as Gayle Martin. That said, I enjoy the great outdoors when I’m not writing, so much of my work is landscapes, although I’ve dabbled a little with studio photography. Learning how to do digital paintings is also on my bucket list.
My photography website and store is called, Gayle Martin Photography, and I’m presenting a nice variety of work. I hope you’ll stop by and take a look. In the meantime, I’ll keep writing contemporary romance novels.
