Where You Live ~ Michelle Anderson

Lazy days of Summer

Beyond the Sea - Lighthouse

Living in New York State, in the Great Lakes area, it is no wonder that photographer Michelle Anderson finds inspiration in life by the water. Lake Erie, Lake Ontario, Niagara River and Niagara Falls are all nearby, and it is reflected in her photography, with sailboats and lighthouses. Walking along the footpaths by the river, watching the sunsets down by the lake, and exploring state parks and back roads are where she captures many things "through the camera's eye."

Red Red Rose

One of Michelle's favourite local traditions is during the Summer, when an annual "Garden Walk" is held. The people of Buffalo open their gardens to the public, and in Michelle's words, "the surprises we find are breathtaking." Some of her favourite flowers to photograph are Roses, Gerber Daisies and Wildflowers. Just outside the city there are two wildlife preserves, with a wide variety of birds, such as Chickadees, Cardinals, Blue Jays, Peregrine Falcons, and Hawks. The local parks are home to many animals as well.

Poetry of Winter

The seasons are beautiful but fleeting, except for the Winter, which Michelle says is long and drawn out. Despite the cold winds, she still enjoys capturing lovely Winter images of the snow and ice on the water, as well as of the local birds. She muses that her photographic style is eclectic, and changes as quickly as the seasons.

Winter is looming

Places she's visited: Puerto Rico, San Francisco, Toronto, Los Angeles, and most of the southern and northern states. Half of her childhood was spent in Canada (Michelle's father is Canadian, her mother is American), and for many years she lived an hour from New York City. Roadtrips are one of her favourite pastimes, touring NY state parks as well as those in Pennsylvania and Ohio.

Where she'd love to go someday: Australia, China, The Netherlands, France and Greece.

Where You Live - Elle Moss

Elle Moss, Saline, Michigan, USA

Photographer Elle Moss lives in Saline, a small farming town in South East Michigan, with a quaint downtown and hilly, tree-lined landscapes. It's only ten minutes away from Ann Arbor, known as "tree town," which Elle likes to visit for outdoor shooting. "Nichols Arboretum and Matthai Botanical Gardens are gorgeous through all seasons," she says.

Regardless of living close to downtown, the local wildlife is ever-present, even in her own backyard. Rabbits, groundhogs, raccoons, and birds and many other woodland creatures stop by, and she once counted fourteen deer in her yard!

The Birds

Saline has all four seasons; long Winters, hot Summers, and short, but beautiful, Fall and Spring. Elle appreciates the beauty of snowstorms, but prefers the comfort of the warmer weather. During the colder months, she takes advantage of interesting interiors to use as backgrounds for her portraits.

The Butterfly Keeper

Although a large part of Elle's work features dark and mysterious self-portraits, some of her favourite subjects include beaches, flowers, carnivals, balloons, people and "kitschy, vintage anything." You can see this influence in her alter ego's Etsy Shop, Alice B. Gardens.


Places she's visited: Detroit, Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Mexico, Orlando, Tampa, London, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee and California. One of her favourite places is close to home~ Lake Michigan, which has beautiful beaches and quaint towns.

On her list of places to see: France, Italy, Spain, Greece, Scotland, Ireland, Australia Hawaii, Portland, Oregon and San Francisco
