Val Weston has extensive experience in creating images that capture unique details and emotions that others miss. She loves the challenge of taking pictures in rapidly changing conditions that she cannot control but can respond to with technical expertise and broad experience. She is comfortable, confident, and capable shooting events, action sports, architecture, and travel photos. Landscape, nature, and history projects bring her personal joy. Her technical skills include infrared photography in which she uses light from a portion of the spectrum that is not visible to the human eye to capture unique images. She also loves diving deep into the minute details of the world through macro photography. She has trained with some top-level photographers through workshops in places like the Great Smoky Mountains and Death Valley as well as through seminar-based professional photography events.
