About Bethany Young
I have been interested in photography for as long as I can remember. My parents gave me my first camera (A Polaroid, because 80’s baby!) for Christmas when I was 4 years old, and I remember going outside to photograph the sky - a little foreshadowing perhaps? I quickly became the friend that always had a camera, and when the time came I went to the University of Oklahoma where I majored in Journalism with a focus in Advertising. In my senior year I had one elective left, so I took a black and white film photography class. This class made me see that my interest in photography was deeper than I even realized. I was on my way to law school when I decided I couldn’t resist pursuing photography, and the rest is history. I never anticipated others would be interested in the images I capture while on evening drives chasing the sun or exploring new cultures - It makes me so happy to know that my images are bringing smiles to other's faces, and finding homes on beautiful walls across the world. I absolutely love to travel, and try to jump on a plane or hit the road as often as I can - it always brings me new inspiration. I am a movie lover, concert-goer, theatre patron, and redhead....
