Jacqueline’s journey into photography began many years ago when she discovered the work of British photographer Simon Marsden. Simon Marsden was famous for his black-and-white infrared photographs of castles, ruins, graveyards, and other mysterious places. Seeing Simon Marsden’s work inspired Jacqueline to study and learn infrared photography.
Specifically, infrared photography is a technique that involves capturing images using infrared light instead of visible light via the use of infrared film or a converted infrared camera. Infrared light has a longer wavelength than visible light and thus is not visible to the human eye. The effect of infrared turns greens to whites and creates dynamic contrast.
After years of self-study, Jacqueline enrolled in the professional photography program at the Washington School of Photography in Bethesda, Maryland. She traveled to Thailand, Europe, and the United States upon graduation, capturing black and white and infrared images.
Originally from Bethesda, Maryland, Jacqueline lived in New Orleans and Dallas before returning home to settle in picturesque rural Carroll County, Maryland. Overall, as a fine art photographer, Jacqueline is committed to capturing natural beauty and preserving the history of our world through photography.
