I am Jillian Bratcher! I am a photographer servicing Southern California and Arizona!
First off, I LOVE people. It's awesome to work with unique individual's and bring out each of their personality's through their portraits. I love to travel to random locations to get the feel you are looking for.
Where do I draw my inspiration from?
Everything. What I am feeling for that moment, how the customer interacts with me, the lighting, the weather, colors and the textures around me and music and fellow photographers!
Have I always had an interest in photography?
I started photography in 10th grade at Chandler High. I entered into it because my boyfriend at the time loved it so much and adored the teacher Mrs. Skousen that I had to try this creative outlet. After joining in, meeting her and getting to know how a camera works I was hooked. It was the best way for me to communicate my feelings through my work. When people get to know me, they find out that I am very extroverted, loud, talkative and out there.
In high school I wasn't really able to explore working with people through my projects, so I primarily shot “abstract work” with film. This work here is what I call my treasure chest, I don’t often share it with anyone but I am working on a site to display it :D! When I got out of high school and finally decided to add my work (people shoots) to Facebook I gained a following and started getting requests for my work.
When this happened and I gained confidence, I truly realized how much I love to shoot photography and work with people. I got to use my skill with my camera and my skill with my extroverted, loud, talkative and out there self. If you shoot with me, you will see!
