At the Garden - Mesha Thomas

I am a photographer living and conducting my business in New York State. I haven’t always claimed to be a photographer but I’ve always taken pictures no matter where I was in my life. I found my love for photography at sixteen. My sister and I used to walk down 23rd Street in Brooklyn and take pictures on peoples' front lawn. Her loving to take pictures and being photogenic, made it very easy for me to photograph her. It made me happy to see her braveness to pose in front of a camera and not be shy about it. I remember thinking, “Wow, she’s not afraid to do this?” It was that moment I realized I can do this and how much I loved it.

Well, fast forwarding to the present. I’ve finished my education, worked as a Human Resources Manager, joined the US Army, and raised a beautiful young man. During that time, I’ve indulged in photography as a hobby and took pictures of everything and everybody. Even though my home of record is NY, I was given the opportunity to experience living, visiting, and working in sixteen states. During that journey, I realized how beautiful life was/is and I wanted to capture it all.

When I got out of the military, I decided to steer-head photography as a profession. I love it! My mission is to capture beautiful and memorable events of people, places, and things all over the world. I am willing to go beyond expectation to preserve the memories that will create laughter and joy for generations to come.

Photography is my interest and the means for me to live. It has been my passion for the past 20 years which never seems to go away. It is a positive constant in my life that always bring me happiness. So, in return, I use that energy to connect with people and return the same joy to them through the photos.
