PHYLLIS WALKER: PHOTOGRAPHY WITH A CAUSE
“Have you ever looked a butterfly in the eye or touched a silky lotus blossom moist with morning dew? Have you ever reflected on the pace of life while watching a snail slowly creep across a leaf?” Phyllis Walker has! The enthusiastic, Georgia based photographer invites you to share her close up encounters with Nature, where the magical world of butterflies, flowers, and autumn leaves… the seaside, desert and forest are revealed.
With her vintage 35mm camera and macro lens, Phyllis focuses on taking photographs that “Inspire the Spirit and Refresh the Soul.” The beautifully matted and framed prints that comprise her Hummingbird Studios portfolio have found their way into many personal collections. Each print celebrates Inner Balance and Natural Living.
Near Blindness: After undergoing eye surgery for a massive detached retina, Phyllis embraced photography as a medium of artistic expression and self- empowerment in overcoming personal adversity. She imbues each photograph with silent prayers of gratitude for the miraculous gift of vision!”
Helping Abused Women: Each purchase made from the Hummingbird Studios collection directly benefits a worthwhile cause: Phyllis merges photography, speaking, advocacy and entrepreneurship to empower battered women. A survivor of domestic violence that impacted her life as a young married college student, Phyllis later established Esperanza! A Woman’s Hope, a charitable 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides scholarships to survivors who are returning to school for job skills upgrade. On behalf of her organization she is a former recipient of the annual “Making a Difference for Women” award from Soroptimist International of Atlanta.
