Five & Five - Teresa Schmid

Five questions & Five photographs - Today's Spotlight on Teresa Schmid~

Funny, Smart & all around Fabulous, Teresa was nice enough to answer some questions and share some of her pictures with us.

 1. What gear do you use?
Nikon D60, still using the 18-55mm kit lens and a Sigma 70-300mm lens

 2.  Who or what has inspired your photography style?

There are all sorts of inspiration out there.  Right now I love to go through Pinterest and look at other photographers photos. When our club gets together to something like Junkyard Madness, you have say 10 people taking pictures of the same thing and everyone has a different perspective and it's great, inspiring!

3.  Do your kids ever get tired of having their picture taken?

Oh definitely, though Jimmy gets more tired of it than Sydney. With Sydney sometimes it's hard to get a candid photo of her   because every time I pull out the camera, my little diva strikes a pose, granted sometimes it's a pose with her tongue sticking out! 

4.  Being a nature photographer, do you have a favorite season to shoot in?

I have two favorite seasons;  Autumn, the colors are so beautiful, and winter, I love to shoot snowy landscapes!

5.  Your Photography Bucket List - name 5 people or places you would like to shoot.

There are many people I'd like to shoot, but to take pictures of...But seriously:

1. Alaska- such beautiful landscapes
2 .Any exotic island, my camera in one hand (or on a tripod) and a drink with an umbrella in another ;)
3. Scotland -Loch Ness here I come, well and St. Andrews Golf Course
4. Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow - wouldn't that be fun!
5. Bono - in Ireland... from the stage!

Teresa will be showing her work this Saturday night at Arnold's Bar & Grill from 6-9 pm


  1. Yay, Tee! I wish I could come out on Saturday. Still keeping the little nugget sequestered from large crowd, but I know I'm missing another great show.
