Meet Bekah Wriedt

Today we’d like to introduce you to Bekah Wriedt.

Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
After saving all my money for a year, I finally bought my first canon, the rebel t3i. I was 15 years old then, and with my camera in hand, all my friends became my models as I practiced everything I learned from the countless photography books, and “how-to” YouTube videos I watched. I constantly asked older photographers how they do what they do. These years of hard work and a constant posture of learning have brought me to where I am today.

Please tell us about your art.
My art is editorial and lifestyle photography. My goal for each shoot is to create beautiful images that inspires people and leaves the creative team encouraged and motivated to create a positive message. I think sometimes the fashion industry can be a negative space, and I want to bring light and encouragement to every single person I interact with.

Choosing a creative or artistic path comes with many financial challenges. Any advice for those struggling to focus on their artwork due to financial concerns?
My biggest advice would be to learn how to market yourself and don’t be afraid to charge what you are worth. I am still learning how to implement these but every time I charge my worth, the results are bountiful!

How or where can people see your work? How can people support your work?
