Turquoise Water


My name is Amy and my photography focuses on the Mediterranean and all it's wonders.  The spectacular sea,  beautiful villages, regions, wine, cuisine, culture and lifestyle. Originally from Seattle, Washington, I moved to Provence many moons ago and fell in love with the Mediterranean Lifestyle.  Allow me to share the Mediterranean Lifestyle with you through photos.   Join me on a "Voyage au Soleil"!

Thanks to my extensive experience in the wine industry, I have been fortunate to have travelled around the world.  I find joy in discovering secret and ordinary places and spaces, watching the waves of the sea and feeling the salt breeze on my skin. I wonder what the seagull is thinking as it soars through the blue skies.  The mixture of warm spices hang in the air from the market while I sip a glass of wine at a cafe in a small stone village.  The colors, scents and conversation envelop and wash over me as I savour each moment.  

I received my degree in Professional Photography here in France under the mentorship of the famous photographer Bernard Bertrand. I've had many careers in life including a university professor, wine consultant, perfume developer, vice president for an international environmental firm, biochemist and a firefighter Emergency Medical Technician, just to name a few.  My CV is much too long.  But now, my passion is photography and taking long walks with my dog Sammy who you can see under the Red Harness series. He is a rescue dog and very wise.

I hope to hear from you soon,
