“I see photography as that eye-catching moment that’s passing, and one which is authentic.” Adele Dejak. In our last blog, Photographic works using nature as a backdrop, we saw Adele being both a designer and photographer. She is used to carrying her camera almost everywhere, making her job her hobby. She always quotes “I love sharing my work as much as possible; I can see the most beautiful view in the world, but if I don’t capture it with my camera and publish it, it’s like I didn’t see it at all.” I got to work with Randy Gowon, one of my…
