Her portfolio consists entirely of portraiture. Really good portraiture.”I’ve always loved to work with people,” Tami said.”It’s great to not only get an image that’s just the description of someone’s face, but also to capture a look in the eye. That’s what I challenge myself to do.”Like other artists, photographers and graphic artists translate subject matter through the filter of personal perspective to produce insight. While the philosophical debate continues on the point of whether or not photography is fine art, there is no doubt in Tami’s mind.”We’ve talked a lot about style this last semester,” Tami said. “You can give photographers a subject, and they can render it in so many different ways. The way I photograph is just the way I see the world. The photographer standing next to me could take something totally different away from it. I’m happy when I can look at my work and say, `Okay. This is something people might not see if I hadn’t taken this picture.’ “Come take a look. You’ll go away inspired.
