My name is Beth Raper and I'm an artist. Photography is my main craft but I enjoy painting with water color, making collages and my secret hobby is drawing comics. I spent 3 years living in beautiful southern California while I attended (and graduated from) the Brooks Institute of Photography. Best 3 years of my life so far! Ever since I can remember I've wanted to make images, whether through video or stills. I love to travel and experience new things, new people and new ways of life. My hope and goals for my work is to create great and meaningful imagery. Whether it satisfies a need, serves as priceless memories, reveals a truth, tells a story or simply fulfills my need to create. I want that to be the foundation my work grows out of.
"I am an American. Photography is my passion. The search for truth is my obsession." ~Alfred Stieglitz
