About Elaine Bullard:

I have been shooting photography since middle school (a long, long time). I traveled through Europe for two summers during high school using an Instamatic camera with the square flash. Then, I graduated to a NikonN2000 film camera. Then life took over and I set my camera down until my early 30’s. When digital cameras came out, I took baby steps in purchasing a lot of point and shoot cameras. Then, my husband bought my first Nikon digital camera, the D40, which he still swears was his most expensive Christmas present ever. I still use that camera as my back-up camera. I am now using the Nikon 7500 camera after my Nikon 5200 died a very quick death. I think I killed it due to shooting over 150,000 photos with it.

I joined Cobb Photographic Society and honed my skills as a photographer by competing in competitions. In 2015, my photo won Novice Photo of the Year and I was named Novice Photographer of the year that same year. A couple of years later I became their field trip coordinator and led numerous field trips for the club for several years.

Then I took the next step and finally started earning money with my photography. I have to pay for all of this equipment somehow. I have photographed several weddings, high school seniors and families. My photography journey has also led me to volunteer for several organizations. I have volunteered as the photographer for Duluth Youth Baseball Opening day for several years and several other organizations. I am also a photographer for Cobb County Rodeo. Recently, I haveI have been published in several magazines.

Hope you can join us for the April Meeting on April 14th!
