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.

Architectural Fine Art Photography

Dallas, TX - January 22nd, 2013

Architectural Fine Art Photography | Sonja Quintero – Texas girl living in East Dallas and dreaming of NYC. “I have been an Interior Designer for many years, but fell in love with photography in 2005. I started out in the darkroom and it remains my true love. I now mostly do digital work to sell online, but also do some work in architectural photography (i have a site for that as well) for people in the design industry. My photos have always leaned towards the structural, stemming from my love of design, I suppose. I shoot cemeteries, as well. There is something in their calm, dark beauty that captivates me. Also intrigued by abandoned things and spaces. Urban decay fascinates me. I shoot things most others ignore. No skinny models or sweet babies for me!” Sonja Quintero – Squint Photography

Photographer Sonja Quintero Wins KERAs Flickr Photo Of The Week

Dallas, TX - September 28th, 2012

Congratulations to Sonja Quintero of Dallas, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest! Sonja joins the three-time winners club; she last took home the trophy in August. She follows our previous week’s winner, John Johnson. Now, here’s more from Sonja: Title of photo: The Unmasking Equipment: Nikon D80 Tell us more about your photo: I took this photo with a long exposure and layered two additional images into Photoshop to create the wallpaper effect in the background and to add a vignette with a black border, which gave it a more vintage look. I wanted to do a portrait with some movement also. I think overall it has an old world, almost spooky feel!
