Featured JPG Member: Jaclyn Sollars

I have recently become completely smitten with Jaclyn Sollars, a photographer out of Lima, Ohio. She has a wonderfully romantic style and manages to make even power lines seem soft and nostalgic. I asked her to share a bit more about herself and, as expected, she sounds quite lovely:


Name: Jaclyn Sollars

I love to shoot: Moments of unexpected beauty. Things that make your heart stop just for a second because they're so beautiful, even though you can't explain why.

My day job: Portrait and Wedding Photographer at Avalon Photography.

My favorite camera: All of them are my favorites. I have 9 different cameras and I love all of them for different reasons. It's like picking a favorite kid. You might be able to, but it just isn't fair to the rest of them.

My dream photo location: Memphis, TN. And if I could go back in time to my early childhood to take photographs (like 3-5 years old), that would be really fantastic.

My deepest fear: Going blind. I don't know how I would function.

I listen to: Jeff Zentner, Mike Doughty, Tom Waits, Ryan Adams, NPR, This American Life.

The last thing I shot: A two year old and his cat. Too adorable.

I love jpg because: It's revolutionary. It's a free and open artistic democracy AND a magazine. And who doesn't love a magazine?

I can't wait to: Go on vacation to and take pictures of rural Florida. I also can't wait to see my family.

I've found unexpected inspiration: Everywhere. There's incredible beauty in every moment of every day.
