My 
Story

Hi Everyone! My name is Mary Bailey. Welcome to my little space where I get to share who I am as an artist and what inspires me to create.

I studied film photography in college at Metro Tech Community College and transitioned that education into becoming a professional photographer for over 22 years. In 2000 I spent 6 years managing a commercial portrait studio. In 2006, I opened my own portrait studio and managed it for 17 years.  In 2020, I decided to return to my first love- landscape photography.

My love of the natural world started for me quite young.  It was while traveling with my family and exploring Yellowstone National Park.  This is where I first remember falling deeply in love with all the wild things.

Capturing the natural world always takes my breath away, I find peace in the fluid & turbulent flow of it. Not unlike my own life it can seem chaotic but in truth, it is in perfect balance. 

I have come to understand that the natural world has something special to teach me.  She speaks to my heart, allowing me to express my love for her in photography.

 I invite you to come along with me as I explore the beauty of the seasons through my photography. My hope is that you too will feel the love and appreciation I have for my subject as there is nothing I enjoy more than losing myself in the earth's wild places.
