"Life isn't about finding yourself, it's about creating yourself"
- George Bernard Shaw
My name is Lindsey Banks; I am L A Banks Photography. I am a portrait and fine art photographer based in Upstate New York.
I started my photographic journey back in the summer of 2014, desperately searching for an artistic outlet as a young mom. I dabbled in a bit of everything; painting, jewelry making, sketching, even wood burning. Finally I saved up enough money for a decent DSLR. I started photographing cemeteries, to learn and understand my camera. After about 6 months I worked my way up to more traditional landscapes and after 2 years of owning a camera I started photographing people. I absolutely loved working with new people in amazing and beautiful places and started to seriously invest into my hobby.
After many years of taking online classes and learning skills to refine my work, I started doing personal projects and discovered my love for fine art portraiture. Since then, my work has been featured in many online and print publications including Cynical Fashion, Surreal Beauty and Dark Beauty Magazines.
In April of 2018 I became a small business and have been working toward my goal of a full-time fine art photographer.
Personal tidbits: I love my daughter, my husband, antiques, movies, crafts and cats. (not necessarily in that order.)
I look forward to connecting with you!
