Brooke Trace

Brooke's interest in photography began as a childhood hobby.  Her mother gave her a point and shoot camera to take photographs of her cats and dogs. She shot photographs of her enormous, Newfoundland dogs. She posed them with sunglasses, hats and bandannas. Her interests in photography lead to her taking courses in junior high school and high school. She built pin-hole cameras. She developed film and prints in the darkroom. Attending college she majored in business and minored in photography.  She particularly liked high speed, black and white film. Since she like shooting photographs at night. She used the lights and shadows to create an artistic image.

Digital photography was a new medium in photography.  She is self taught in the digital medium.  The post shooting, editing and printing process was an evolution in the process. Once she mastered that she began to use settings when shooting to create her own style.  Finishing the process of creating her style is done through editing the images once downloaded from the camera.

Through shooting photographs at the break of day she has created an extensive collection of surreal, beautifully inviting seascape images. She has two different printing mediums that she uses to create two completely different looks with her work.  She has them printed on canvas creating a traditional look of a painting. The other method is a very modern look. She has them printed on metallic paper and sublimated under acrylic. Through the iridescence of the metallic paper the images shimmer and come to life.

Brooke has exhibited in numerous galleries in Fort Lauderdale. She has had her works on public display including City Hall. She has participated in art & international marine shows. She has been commissioned by private and corporate collectors. She has been published in magazines both commercially and for her fine art photography.
