Sue Hershey has been a photographer for over 30 years and has worked in both the commercial and fine arts sides of her craft. While working full time at a marketing/advertising career, she studied photography at both New York City’s School of Visual Arts and New York University at night and learned her craft at the feet of some well-known photographers.
Her work has been shown, and has won photography awards, at the School of Visual Arts in NYC, the Dallas Center for Contemporary Arts and the One Show in Fort Worth, Texas. Her work has hung in Stratford Green Gallery in Lewisville, TX and Mud, Wind & Fire Gallery in Grapevine, TX.
Sue moved to Brevard, North Carolina in 2005 and with Joan VanOrman opened Bluewood Photography Gallery, which featured many well-known regional and national photographers. The Gallery garnered a reputation as one of the best fine art photography galleries in the Southern Appalachians. Sue and Joan sold the Gallery in 2010 and Sue is now a member of Number 7 Arts Gallery in Brevard.
No matter what part of the country one lives in there is something unique about it. I try to capture the flavor of the region…the things that identify the lives of the people in it.
