Edda Taylor Photographie along with Art Stump Photography
'LIGHT IN THE MIND' PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP
LIGHT IN THE MIND-PROGRAM PRESENTERS
Edda Taylor and Art Stump are extraordinary professional photographers. Each has a unique approach to the challenging field of photography and each of a very personal vision of what photography is.
In their collective work we are able to see through their eyes the small slices of life that no other soul can show us. The fact is that these presenters are more than consummate professional photographers; they are first and foremost artists. They share with their viewers their unique personal response to that quality of light that defines their work, whether viewed on a wall or carried home in the minds of those who look upon it.
Ms. Taylor, M. Photog. Cr.
Edda’s French grandfather, an avid art collector, first introduced her to the fine arts at the tender age of five and she fell in love with the French Impressionists especially Monet, Degas, and Renoir. It was after coming to the United States as a young woman that it became clear that photography would become the love of her life. She worked as a receptionist for a great photographer, John Giolas, who mentored and encouraged her to begin a formal photographic education and inspired her to become a professional. In pursuit of her dream, she studied at the Winona International School of Professional Photography, Forum du Maquillage in Paris, and Color Charisma Training Center in Atlanta, Georgia. With that training and her gifted eye she began turning out works of art – not with a paintbrush but with a camera.
Edda’s charming studio, resembling an art gallery, can be found on the top floor of the historic Crown Point Courthouse in Northwest Indiana. The enormous windows allow Edda to “paint” photographs that are creations of light.
Edda holds the degrees of Master Photographer, Photographic Craftsman, and is a certified color analyst. As an international citizen, in addition to English, Edda is fluent in French, Italian, Greek, and Turkish. She is a member of the Crossroads Chamber of Commerce, Professional Photographers of America (PPA), Imaging Professionals of Indiana (IPI), and the Crown Point Rotary Club. She is on the board of The Indiana Ballet Theatre and on the board and a past president of St. Jude House.
Her singular style and photographic accomplishments have distinguished her both nationally and internationally. Edda is sought out as a guest lecturer throughout the United States, Europe and the Caribbean. As a writer she has been published in several magazines and is writing two books to be published in 2015. She also leads workshops at Purdue University, Indiana University, and Winona School of Professional Photography.
