What do the great fashion photographers of our time, Helmut Newton, Bruce Weber, Albert Watson, Sante D’Orazio, Walter Chin, Marco Glaviano, Steve Lyon and Christian Schuller, have in common with a 40-ton humpback on the coast of Tonga, a 20-foot Great White shark in the waters off Mexico, a charging elephant in Namibia or 5 Million Jellyfish?
They have all been subjects observed by the New Smyrna Beach, Florida born model-turned-photographer Amber Myles Arbucci.
“I feel that there are photo opportunities all around us that can afford a good photograph; however, I am not interested in taking a good picture. My goal, when taking a photograph, is to take MY AUDIENCE on A journey with me, and to make reality feel like fantasy”.
And what journeys they are. Deep oceans, thick jungles, wide savannahs, daunting mountains – and the wildlife that populates them – all speak to the soul of this dynamic young adventure photographer as she travels the world.
“Ever since I have been a child I have had wild dreams of being among the World’s most dangerous creatures in complete peace. I still have these dreams, only now I live them.”
“My goal from the beginning with each art piece is to pay tribute to place and time, however, I question how can I continue doing this when these majestic creatures are dying out so rapidly, and our earth is changing on a daily basis?
Life is the most precious gift that anyone has, so we must not live in it but live it.”
