About Sonja Quintero

I am first and foremost an artist. Always have been. I drew cartoon characters as a child, designed logos as a teenager, and studied interior design as an adult. I have since turned my sights on photography. I picked up my first SLR in 2005 and fell head over heels in love with film and the black & white darkroom. There is something magical about the way an image is 'born' as it swims in the developer. I find the darkroom is a place where I can truly lose myself.

In 2007 I purchased my first digital SLR (also a Nikon) and have since developed skills in digital post processing. While I'll admit it's not as awe inspiring as the darkroom, it's not without its charm...and convenience. Most of my work is digital nowadays, not because I prefer it that way, though.

My work leans towards the structural, the static and the oft times dark and melancholy. However, I find a sense of humour in every image I take and I hope you do too.

The Beauty of Fall

November 5th, 2012

I always look forward to fall. It is my favourite time of year, since I was a little girl. Fall has been late to arrive here in North Texas - making only a brief, teasing appearance a few weeks ago then leaving me just as quickly and hungry for more.... 

Finding Faith in Film

September 24th, 2012

Although I don't use film as much as I used to, I still have faith in it. I have faith in it's power. It's what attracted me to photography in the first place. There was nothing more magical to me than watching that image come alive as it sat in t... 

Non Conformity at Any Age

September 14th, 2012

Why does it seem like most people think non-conformity is only for the young? It should be for everyone, regardless of age, sex, or nationality. I found that as I get older I'm not following that stereotype. And it's not like I'm necessarily doing... 

Flea Marketing

September 7th, 2012

Good Friday everyone! I've been eagerly awaiting for this crazy Texas heat to let up so that I can go flea marketing. I have always loved to rummage through old things since I was a child. My mom would take me with her on early morning garage sale... 

Being a Photographer

This is my first blog entry, EVER. Have mercy on me. :) After 15 years of working as an interior designer, I decided to take a leap of faith. A big one. I decided it was time to dedicate my attention to a true passion. Photography. From the m...
