To learn how to see behind the lens of a camera has been one of Revonda’s greatest joys and passions. She sees photography as a wonderful medium that can teach us to see the world in ways never thought of. One of her favorite quotes is “Normally, we do not so much look at things as overlook them”-Alan Watts Although shooting for a short time, in four years Revonda’s eye and passion has had her work published in a special National Geographic’s collector’s edition book called “Your Shot: A 101 Best Photos”, published June 2009. National Geographic also picked another of Revonda’s images to be featured as downloadable wallpaper in September 2009 from National Geographic’s online magazine. There is nothing she will not shoot; “if the light is right” is her philosophy. This philosophy has given her many opportunities and adventures such as shooting pro-sports for columbuswired.net, shooting the holiday card for the Ohio Statehouse in 2006, to meeting and shooting the descendents of Thomas Jefferson at a family reunion, images and story published by the Ohio Historical Society. She learned studio photography shooting pets and their owners as a way to donate the proceeds to humane shelters around Ohio. Many of her wildlife images were featured in a gallery show called “Voice of the Voiceless” in Armenia to raise awareness of shrinking wildlife habitats. Exploring the world behind the lens of a camera has had a few perks along the way as Revonda has won many cameras, gear and awards, but her favorite perk has been to be able to shoot and share photography with her three daughters. One of Revonda’s main goals is showing others interested in photography that it is an ever changing and expanding hobby/art that can last a lifetime and the rewards a true gift.
