My name is Steffanie and I'm a photographer based in Colton, CA specializing in conceptual art.
I've been on this site for several years now and have come to a realization of many things.
I've grown immensely tired of photographing girls with no purpose at all other than looking attractive and fixating on this idea on how beauty should be defined... and quite honestly, I am done. There is so much more to this world than a tight body and clear skin. As a trained fine art photographer (any photographer who makes content for that matter), I feel we all have the responsibilty to be careful with what imagery we put out there.
Photographs are a mere illusion of millions of colored squares we call pixels, blended together asking us to make sense of the world while planting seeds in our minds.
On a deeper level, images, both moving and still, influence and shape the way we feel, the way we think and how we treat others, whether we are conscious of it or not.
I don't believe we are sophisticated enough to understand the greater implication photographs can do to us as a whole and so I want to remove myself from systems of subliminal oppression. Even when a photograph is trying to be about feminism or woman empowerment, ultimately the viewer is the one who takes control of its meaning. In order to move forward, image making needs to be put to a halt while conversations about objectification, sexism and philosophy generate and make its way into mainstream media. In this day in age, one must be a self-aware photographer, model and retoucher.
I want to work with creatives who see past the bullshit and want to create something larger than themselves. Only TFP.
Thank you for reading.
