Welcome! My name is Amber O’Shea, and I’m an aspiring music photojournalist with over 4 years of experience as a professional studio photographer. I’m the author of one published novel, Hope’s Shadow, and received my BA in sociology from Flagler College in 2005. I am now working on my MA in new media journalism from Full Sail University. I am scheduled to graduate in June 2012.
I have been into music all of my life. I started singing in choir at the age of 5, both in church and in my elementary school choir. By my teenage years, I switched to band, learning to play the French horn. I am now attempting to teach myself to play the guitar.
While living in St. Augustine, Fla, I started photographing local band The Wobbly Toms. I enjoyed not only photographing the bands, but working with the musicians, so much that I decided I wanted to start up a blog to help support local musicians.
Besides this blog, I also contribute articles for the Birmingham Free Press Music Blog and will soon be interning with Extreme Rock Magazine. One day, I’d like to make it to working with the Rolling Stones Magazine.
My current photography job prohibits me from posting my resume online, but if you would like a complete copy, please email me at email@example.com.
