This Month’s Featured Artist
at Atomic Pizza:
My name is Sonja Marie and I am a photographer based in Olympia, WA and while I love photography, becoming a photographer was not something I planned on.
Life and family and nursing school took a front seat (happily) until 3 years ago I decided to pursue my enjoyment of photography and nature and blend the two together. I saved for my first “real” camera and was hooked the moment I pressed the shutter button.
As a PNW native, I am in love with our mountains, forests, waterfalls and beaches. I try to take full advantage of the abundance of nature that we have in our region and get out as much as life allows. The best part is, I never have to go far!
While my work now primarily focuses on landscape and wildlife photography, my other interests are in sports (particularly soccer) and portraits.
I aspire to not only capture a great photo but to tell the story of that brief moment in time; to capture the emotion; to have the viewer feel they are also there enjoying what I am.
When I see “the money shot” in my viewfinder, whether it be a mountain, animal, or person, I’m like a kid in the candy store and I can’t wait to share it with you!
