About Artist

Basic Information

  • Artist Statement

    My name is Jessica Ingram. I am a freelance photographer based out of Shreveport, LA. I have an Associate Degree in Mass Communications with a focus in Fine Art Photography. I recently graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree in Mass Communications for Public Relations.
    I'm pursuing my passion and love for the art of photography, because for as long as I can remember, I have seen the world through a square.
    When I look through my camera's viewfinder, everything goes into stop motion. I see potential photographs in every waking moment.
    It is as if there's a shutter in my mind, snapping an image of every fleeting frame of my life, and with my camera I can share these precious moments with others.
     Sometimes I know before I press the shutter button exactly what I want to do with an image. A scene will have a way of choosing how it should be edited, whether it should be classic monochrome or vivid color. The photo-manipulation also can come spontaneously at times, lending itself to my overactive imagination. I try to utilize every photographic opportunity to my advantage. More of my work can be seen at: www.JessicaIngramPhotography.com

    I also enjoy making comedic/ parody videos with my best friend, Claudia. We have a YouTube Channel called: Weasel F Productions. We film and edit impromptu comedy on Saturdays.

    I have an avid love for writing as well. I have a written a few feature pieces for SB Magazine, as well as for LSUS's News publication, The Alamagest. I also enjoy writing short-stories and poetry.
