Woman With The Tattooed Hands

This Week: photographer Ama Lea

How long have you been shooting
6 years.

How did you get into photography
By accident! I was going to college with a full scholarship for music theater. That was my "thing". Then some friends and I were messing around with my grandfather's camera. I took photos of them in a black wedding dress that we spray painted in a cemetery. When I got the photos back I knew this was it. That's what I'm going to do. So I dropped out and applied for photo school. The rest is history.
