i suppose i should start at the beginning because ( julie andrews would agree) it is indeed the best place to start.
my name is claire marika goussard, and i'm a photographer.
i am currently based in provo, utah, working on a bfa in photography at brigham young university.
i've been photographing since my dad gave me my first camera, probably when i was fourteen or so. it was an old 35mm slr he decided was too bulky and impractical for him to run around with, a minolta x-370s, that i still shoot with.
i've worked as a photo assistant for two summers with tom addison of afsi in st. augustine florida for two summers, and for brad slade--the photographer for seeing the everyday and most byu publications--since january.
i decided to create this blog as more and more people have asked to see my work and have shown interest in my wedding photography. i also plan to start working on a website this summer.
thanks for checking this out, i'm sure you'll be hearing from me again.
