Eliza Marie : The Artist Interview

I've mentioned before that I love connecting with other creative people, artists included. Today I'm interviewing a very talented photographer named Elizabeth Marie. Her business Eliza Marie Photography is local to the Indianapolis, IN area. She did a great job doing my professional author portraits and today we are talking about her work. Be sure to check out her links at the bottom of the page and get a glimpse of some of her favorite photos throughout the interview.

When did you know you wanted to be a photographer?

I've always enjoyed art, and taking photographs. When I took a step back and actually thought about what I wanted to do for a career, I kept coming back to photography. It's definitely not an easy business. New photographers pop up every day, the market is saturated, but it takes more than just a good camera.

What do you love about being behind the camera?

Creating art. Capturing memories for individuals and families. Freezing moments in time that will never happen again.
What/who inspires you?
I'm inspired by individuals who chase their dreams and make them a reality. Not necessarily in photography, but in great ideas, small businesses, etc.

What are your favorite types of photo-shoots to work on?

I really love shoots where I have complete creative control... Taking an idea that popped into my mind, and turning it into a photograph. I also love photographing children, families, and young adults.

Do you enjoy collaborating?

Yes!!! I love working with hair & makeup artists to make a vision come to life. I also love working with other photographers, and realizing how differently creative minds "see" things.

Are there any other creative endeavors you enjoy? If so, what?

I like to attempt crafting... 


What is your current obsession (it can be anything!)?

The new Smashing Pumpkins album, "Oceania". It's amazing!
