Jennifer Meihofer has been a photographer for the past 20 years. Although fine art photography is where here current photographic energies lie, her earlier professional years were primarily dedicated to portrait and wedding photography. Still life, commercial, and newspaper photography made their way into her portfolio as well. Additionally she spent two years as a photo restorer using Photoshop when it was a new phenomenon.
Jennifer began her photographic education with an adult education BOCES course. She had furthered her experience through her studies at Long Island University in Southampton. Additionally she studied film making at the New York Film Academy. Hands on experience has always been the cornerstone of her development as a photographer. Working as a camera lithographer for a printing company, and a photo technician at a variety of Camera Stores, Jennifer’s understanding of film and imaging was further developed. Assisting other various professionals in the field had also helped her glean insights into the art of her craft. In addition she has also been a staff photographer for “Dan’s Papers”, “The Pass”, and the owner and publisher of “The Directory of Holistic Practices” as well as freelancing for a variety of other publications.
Her Images have been published in “Dan’s Papers”, “The Southampton Press”, “Spa Magazine”, “The East Hampton Star”, “Newsday”, “The Pass”, “The Directory of Holistic Practices” and a number of publications for private organizations.
