Where You Live - Mary Vican

We have met so many talented photographers through our Etsy group (FPOE), who kindly share their time and knowledge, giving advice and support to other members. Here you can read about what part of the world they live in, and how it influences their photography.

Mary Vican,West Warwick, Rhode Island, USA

Rhode Island is a coastal plain with rocky inlets, miles of sandy beaches, 100-foot bluffs and a wealth of inspiration for local photographer, Mary Vican. Known as "The Ocean State," RI boasts rugged ocean cliffs and breathtaking views, as well as lighthouses and colourful gingerbread cottages. Mary's photography features the cool, serene images that capture the feeling of a peaceful summer holiday at the beach.

Chatham, Cape Cod

Natural attractions that are nearby (some are accessible by ferry) include Block Island, Montauk (NY) and Cape Cod, which Mary lists as one of her favourite places to take her camera.

Falsmouth, Cape Cod

Mary describes how she interprets her environment into her photography:

"I like to shoot things as I see them; to capture the way I felt approaching a secluded part of the beach from the dunes, for example. When I see my final photo and it takes me back to that place or moment, I know it's successful."

The Dunes

Having all four seasons provides a variety of scenery, but Mary loves the ideal light and breathtaking foliage of Autumn, and the first, pristine snow of Winter. She feels that she is most active during the Summer, when the weather is perfect for travelling. "Right now I use every luscious Summer weekend for road tripping and photographing!" she says.

Although a bit further away, Acadia National Park, The Berkshires (MA) and New Hampshire's White Mountains are destinations she loves to visit, taking in the different scenery and wildlife. Some of the local wildlife in her area include Robins, Cardinals, Red-Tailed Hawks, Squirrels, Beavers, Eastern Screech Owls, Osprey, and Striped Bass. Her dad even caught the state record two years ago- weighing in at a whopping 75.4 lbs!

Faraway places she's visited include the Bahamas, London, Paris, and Greece, where she has also captured the beauty of life by the seaside:

On her list of places to see: Italy, Santa Fe, New Mexico, Yellowstone National Park (Wyoming)
