Lonely Planet photographer profile: Cheyenne L Rouse

December 14, 2010

Name: Cheyenne L Rouse

Country: USA – Scottsdale, Arizona

What equipment do you use: Canon EOS DSLR

How much time do you spend travelling for photography a year: As much as I can but being a new gallery owner keeps me in town quite a bit – since I live in the Southwest it is easy and pretty quick for me to get to the locations that I need to even if it is just a quick overnighter.

Favourite photography subject and why: Old trucks, old trains, barns, wild horses, cowboys – I LOVE anything that symbolizes the Old West and Southwest!!!

Most photographic country and why: For me the US…the Southwest and West in particular. With its vast open spaces and amazing scenery who could ask for more!

The best photo you’ve taken and why: A black and white of a old adobe cemetery wall in New Mexico…very moody and beautiful! I love New Mexico and the photo to me shows how beautiful and mystical that state is!

What first got you interested in photography: My Dad bought me a camera when I was 15 and I got my 1st “A” in school in my Photography class and thought, mmmm…this might be something I can actually do well!

What was your first big break: I won Grand Prize in a California state photo contes! In 1992!

Tips for budding photographers: Grow thick skin now….it’s a very tough market out there but if you have a way of shooting photos that is SO different from what’s out there GO FOR IT and don’t give up!

Next assignment: To make my Ancient Light Gallery in Scottsdale AZ the best Gallery AND promoting my new book – I will continue to shoot for a few different photo series that I am working on, “Ghosts of the West”, “Land of the Ancients” and “Southwest Color” – you can see them on my website: www.AncientLightPhotos.com

Some more of Cheyenne’s amazing images can be viewed here.

What equipment do you use (eg brand, model, lenses, filters, anything useful): Canon EOS DSLR

 

How much time do you spend travelling for photography a year (eg on average; 6 months per year): as much as I can but being a new Gallery owner keeps me in town quite a bit – since I live in the SW it is easy and pretty quick for me to get to the locations that I need to even if it is just a quick over night.

 

Favourite photography subject and why (eg portraits/orangutans – colour and expression): Old trucks, old trains, barns, wild horses, cowboys – I LOVE anything that symbolizes the Old West and Southwest!!!

 

Most photographic country, why (eg Indonesia: colour, culture, vastly different landscapes): For me the US…the Southwest and West in particular. With its vast open spaces and amazing scenery who could ask for more!

 

The best photo you’ve taken, why (eg Baby gorilla in Rwanda – lighting/setting/etc): A Black and White of a old adobe cemetery wall in New Mexico…very moody and beautiful! I love New Mexico and the photo to me shows how beautiful and mystical that state is!

 

What first got you interested in photography (eg my first trip to Europe): My Dad bought me a camera when I was 15 and I got my 1st “A” in school in my Photography class and thought, mmmm…this might be something I can actually do well!

 

What was your first big break (eg winning a photo competition): I won Grand Prize in a California state photo contest! In 1992!!!

 

Tips for budding photographers (eg if you’re first submission gets rejected, get some feedback): Grow thick skin now….it’s a very tough market out there but if you have a way of shooting photos that is SO different from what’s out there GO FOR IT and don’t give up!!!!

 

Next assignment (eg Burning Man Festival in Nevada; commission shoot for Barcelona):  To make my Ancient Light Gallery in Scottsdale AZ the best Gallery AND promoting my new book – I will continue to shoot for a few different photo series that I am working on, “Ghosts of the West”, “Land of the Ancients” and “Southwest Color” – you can see them on my website: www.AncientLightPhotos.com

Hello all,

 

As you may have noticed, we are trying to update our blog and Facebook profile as often as we can to get more traffic coming through.

 

I would like to initiate a Photographer’s Spotlight which we can post on a regular basis.

 

This is going to require all of your help!

 

Basically, we just want  a few questions answered, and if you can help us out by sending a small image of yourself this would add some colour.

 

We’re also keen to post any news/events/exhibitions/launches that you might have coming up on these sites, so feel free to send me any information you have.

 

Suggestions are also welcome.

 

Questions are attached. Please feel free to add any pointers that you might have over and above these questions.

 

Cheers,

 

Kylie
