ABOUT Myra Thiessen
Myra is a Master Fine Art Portrait-Wedding Artist & oil painter; creating imaginative works of art. She has finessed the ability to combine the two concepts. The beauty of oil painting, with all the zest of real life photography. Her personal theory for photography is "it is the only medium that stops time, from the moment that the shutter is pressed and the image is captured; the image will never be repeated again with all the elements that are happening at THAT moment." She finds that capturing a memory the most rewarding facet of photography and it is her goal every single shoot to achieve the level of excellence she strives to keep. She is a dedicated Nikon shooter seeing her use all of these years as a relationship of sorts. Being blessed to be on both sides of the lens, she brings a special skillset to every project. She is also adept at set building and concept photography. She's been published within both types of projects.
Her interests vary from high fashion, artistic, boudoir, family but probably her favorite genre is weddings & fantasy photography. Experienced, inspired and skilled- you get the entire package with Myra. Loving your work shows! She treats every client and project as a singularly special experience. Setting the bar for excellence in the industry and inspiring other artists to dive just as deep into their passions."
