“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”  Aaron Siskind

Whitney Gray is a photographer based in Charlotte, NC.

 

These things influence how I see life: 

Nature and beautiful color inspire my photographs.  In fact, I could live outside 24/7; A perfect day to me is jet skiing or playing in the snow with my family. Speaking of snow, I love weather! Weather directly affects light, which affects photography… See how that relates? Traveling with Jim is one of my favorite pastimes. 

I’m ridiculously sentimental because life goes by in the blink of an eye and I treasure my time.

Laughter and humor are essential in my life. Animals are hilarious! My philosophy is that the more animals in the picture, the better. 

I have a heart for people with disabilities and always root for the underdog. My enthusiasm is contagious and I use lots of exclamation marks!!!

My fierce love of my family influences everything I do.  I’ve been married for 25 years to my best friend, Jim. I thoroughly enjoy my two kids, Morgan (23) and Roman (19). 

My challenge is to create images that feel like you can reach out and touch your loved one.

It’s my honor and privilege to photograph you.
