Photographer Elizabeth B. Knipes


Creative visions, inspirational flow of energy are words used to describe Elizabeth’s work. She has an eye for natural beauty, light-reflections and the ability to capture energy. A South Carolina native, Elizabeth is known for a warm personality that manages to bring out the depth of her subjects to true light.  She has studied in courses such as varied as Psychology and Marine Biology.  Being an outdoors person, she has traveled to many of the states and other countries, enjoying the glorious sights and sounds that nature has to offer.                

 “As far back as I can remember, I have always felt art as a part of me.  I did not know then that one day it  would become a great passion of mine.  I have found great joy being around Art in any form of medium and being around those who, like me, are passionate about life. In my travels, I have discovered that unplanned moments are often the most grand and that beauty lies within any and all things, especially in the least expected.  Therefore I  prefer unposed subjects and believe in the possibilities of not the “why” but the “why not” of living.  No one subject is my personal preference.  I say “why not” the world as the subject. I believe life is our teacher, feeling and seeing are our rewards and that no greater school or teaching can be better taught, than that of living.”  E.B.Knipes
