Hi, I'm Marsha Kemp.
I'm a portrait photographer living in the Tampa Bay Florida area but I travel what ever the work takes me. My work has an emphasis on branding and creative collaboration. I feel that both the photographer and the client must have a good working relationship to fully execute the concept. That and pre-planning. Before I work with anyone I like to have at lease a phone call to discuss the details. I won't take a job unless I speak to you before hand. I enjoy working with companies big and small, entrepreneurs, families, pet owners, and just cool kick ass people.
I fell in love with photography at a young age. I feel that it is such a powerful medium. Sometimes you only have one image to catch the attention of the viewer. And in that images you have the opportunity to physically cause an emotional reaction, be it happiness, sadness, anger, intrigue .
My biggest career accomplishment so far was showing
Freeing time. It's one of the magical wonders of the world. Time is fleeting and
I was lucky enough to have some great role models in my life. My first role models the women in my family whom are are fearless, strong, independent caring individuals. I smoked cigarets in my early 20's for a few years (yes it is wrong and gross, but I regret nothing!) and the cigarets I smoked where Kamel Reds mainly due to their advertising and packaging "Back after 80 years for no good reason except they taste good." I respected the punk rock attitude. I'm a firm believer that if you are going to do anything in live, fuck, do it with some passion.
