“I started out doing photography because it was an easy class in high school, but I found out that I enjoyed it and had a talent for it. Later in high school, I worked for a portraiture studio for more than a year and a half. This is where I advanced my skills and learned to become a better photographer and how a professional photographer operates. A lot of the inspiration for my work stems from trying to use the elements and principals of design. I like to use dramatic lighting and interesting subject matter to invoke emotions or ideas in my work. The majority of my work is digital, but I have worked with traditional film cameras and darkrooms. I’ve never taken an art class in college due to a heavy class load, but I do still try to use my camera whenever I have free time. Since I've come to college I’ve moved away from portraiture, and I’ve turned my interests towards the more abstract and compositing of images.”

"Fall Colors" by Cameron MeyerFall Colors was one of the first pictures I ever took on my camera. It was an assignment for my first photography class where we had to take a photo that was about autumn. I used a curling iron to curl the leaf, construction paper for the back drop and a desk lamp for the lighting. I later submitted it to the fall art exhibit at the Madden Museum of Art in Denver and won first place. This image taught me that you don't have to have the best equipment or the best training to create art.”

"Heffer" by Cameron MeyerHeffer was taken at my aunt’s farm. The cow’s name was Harland. I liked how the various textures showed through in this image, from the slobber rolling out of her lips to the fine texture of her fur. I decided to do this as a half portrait because I felt like it made the image stronger with the rope as a directional line leading your eye towards Harland.”

"Mekong" by Cameron MeyerMekong was taken in a small market in Vietnam off of the Mekong River. Most of the locals kept their heads down and tried not to interact with foreigners, but she stood there, unfazed, watching us. I was fascinated by her confident unbroken stare, so I photographed her. When I went to view the image, she didn't look stern or disapproving as I expected, she looked sympathetic and sincere.”

"On the River" by Cameron MeyerOn the River was taken in Vietnam off of a boat in a spillway that ran through the city. This specific location was in a very poor shanty town right off the water. The people that live in this area are heavily reliant on fishing in these waters, and that is what the subject of this image is doing. I chose to make this picture in black and white to show more of the texture in the buildings and to highlight more clearly the repetition of lines in the columns.”

"Star Keeper" by Cameron MeyerStar Keeper is part of a collection I created that explores the topic of hands and how they shape our lives. The image is a composite of two images. The first is a picture of the moon, and the second a picture of hands in front of a light. The photo of the moon was taken using a telescope with a camera attachment. I chose to angle the hands grasping the moon towards the corner while leaving a large amount of negative space to give the feeling of pulling away.”

"Texture" by Cameron MeyerTexture is of an old tractor tire from my aunt’s farm. Most people I have shown the image have absolutely no clue what it is, and I usually get a lot of creative guesses as to what the subject matter is. I think it's due to the interesting texture of the tire, which is what originally interested me. In this image, I manipulated the lighting on the treads of the tire to create a path that leads your eye down the image through the interesting texture of the tire.”

"The Fighter" by Cameron MeyerThe Fighter is part of a collection I created that explores the topic of hands and how they shape our lives. It is also a self-portrait that was taken using a self-timer (and a lot of patience). My intent was to use dramatic lighting and the texture of the wrapping to make it feel as if the punch was coming through the page.”
