I've always believed that talent for being artistic is really god sent. A lot of people have the desire to become a painter or musician but its not something everyone can pursue. But the ones that do, find tremendous success and passion which makes them head for greater things. These are the words I use to describe 'Bree Madden's photography. The images captivated me and being a huge nature lover myself, I felt myself being transformed to a peaceful place sitting by the lake somewhere listening to the waves, surrounded by bright colorful flowers. Can you hear the waves? I had the pleasure to interview Bree and try and discover her amazing talent for photography..Read on :)
