Valerie's interest in photography began as a young child looking through copies of Arizona Highways magazine in the doctor's office in Olympia, Washington. She later collected pretty postcards during family vacations and camping trips in the 1970's.
After using a Kodak Instamatic 110 and a Polaroid camera, she bought a Pentax 35 mm camera when she was 22 and began to experience a measure of satisfaction with the quality of the photos she could take. In the 1980's and early 90's she was a reporter/photographer for small town newspapers while raising her family of four sons.
She moved to Texas in 2000 and entered the new world of digital photography. It was a perfect fit. While living in Austin she photographed several weddings and took head shots and family holiday portraits, as well as producing fine art images.
In October, 2013, Valerie moved to Kingman, Arizona and continues to capture landscapes and images of other categories in her beautiful new surroundings.
Valerie Loop's prints available here at Fine Art America includes landscapes, nature shots, rural life, special effects, retro looks, performers and pets. You will find great diversity in her portfolio, suitable for your home or office decor and public space display.
