My name is Noa Chandler, I am 26 years old, and I was born and raised in Metro Detroit.
As a professional working in the field for 10 years, I specialize in Portraits, Engagements, Product Shots, and Fine Art Photography.
That's the basics. How did I get here? I would love to tell you.
I have always been a super artistic person, I love crafts and completing tasks by working through a process. In high school, I became interested in a career in art, but didn't have any specific medium In mind. I took many art classes, so when I ended up in Mr. Deluca's class at Walled Lake Central High School, It was a no brainer. Fate, if you will. He was an inspirational artist, and always encouraged his students to pursue whatever made them happy.
One day, he handed me a camera, and told me to go and shoot. As I shot, I fell in love with creating realities from my imagination through photography. He pushed me to be a better photographer and person, and I am grateful I had someone to push me when I was young. Unfortunately he has since passed away.
After high school, I became interested in other mediums within the photo realm, and concentrated on them in college. Some of these mediums include the process of developing and printing film, alternative processes including platinum prints and cyanotypes, and working with medium and large formats.
I graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, GA, with my B.F.A. in Photography in 2018. I am now based in the Metro Detroit Area.
