Hello! My name is Amber Flowers.
I am a Photographic Artist and Squarespace Website Developer based in Glasgow, Kentucky.
PHOTOGRAPHY provides the ability to preserve my observations of a moment between two souls, the golden glow of a beautiful sunset landscape or the delicate beauty of a snowflake -- all of which would otherwise fade away. I greatly love what I do, for it enables me to meet new people and travel to a new destination, on another grand adventure, always with a camera in my hand. There is something deeply alluring about the feel of the sun on my skin and the wind in my hair while exploring rugged and urban locations.
WEBSITES provide another outlet for my creativity. I love to play with code and greatly enjoy the creative process. It's such a rewarding challenge to develop an on-going relationship with my client, to better understand them and their business and then watch their website evolve to become an extension of who they are. It's so exciting to design and develop websites for other creatives and small businesses owners as they reach for the stars.
VOLUNTEERING and Giving Back is something I'm passionate about. Although I’ve been in business professionally since 2014, I started my business over 10yrs ago volunteering my services for work experience and self-growth. Currently, I provide Post Mortem Memoria and Ante Mortem Pet Photography by donation and I am a Volunteer and the Volunteer Photographer (VIP/PIP) at nearby Mammoth Cave National Park.
As for the future, I dream of one day working at Mammoth Cave National Park as a Park Ranger and traveling the world on nature related photographic adventures for research, conservation and exploration. I want to study and learn historically used alternative photographic processes such as tintypes and daguerreotypes. I enjoy working in my garden, exploring caves, collecting rocks and fossils and spending time in nature as often as possible.
