Celebrating Deviousness - September 2015

In Recognition of Exemplary Membership and an Outstanding Spirit of helpfulness and mentoring within the DeviantArt community.
Introducing Kendra-Paige
:iconkendra-paige:
“My name is Kendra Paige, and I am a fashion and beauty photographer, as well as a photography educator. I have been a member of DeviantArt for over eleven years, joining as a young teenager while first experimenting with digital art. I first picked up a film camera in 2005, and discovered my love for photography in a high school darkroom. As fate would have it, I now have the honor of inspiring high school students as a photography instructor in sunny Florida.
The community on DeviantArt has played a vital role in my development as an artist, as well as a mentor. I wrestled with ambitious visions that I could not yet commit to reality, learn
Art and Artists: Kendra-PaigeDear watchers and visitors,
More than one week passed since we introduced to you one of our very first and constant contributors, and now it's time to move on and meet new people.
Today we draw your attention to a very wise, talented and truly exquisite photographer, Kendra-Paige!
Kendra is originally from Point Pleasant, New Jersey, but at the moment she lives in Florida, where she produces the bulk of her work. She is really a sophisticated and mature person, and today she will share her artist's wisdom with you. Prepare to pay your full attention, because from this interview you will learn a lot!
This is what Kendra told us about herself:
"I have a few hobbies such as writing, though my photography has taken over everything, so I now try to funnel my writing into concepts for my portrait and fashion work. I'm a very optimistic person, and I'll always find a silver lining. While I do remain realistic on many things, I always find that having a positive attitude can make th
Devious Accents `15Have you ever wondered what goes on in the artistic endeavors of a Senior? What makes them tick?
"Devious Accents" is a feature/interview series of Senior Members here on deviantART that aims to surface key features of each Senior and to show them to the community as a whole, brought to you by dAseniors--the official group for Senior Members on deviantART!
Finally, thoughts and sentiments from the Senior-side are revealed to the general community. Let's get started! :la:
Joining us this week will be Kendra-Paige, a skilled photographer and long-time deviant!
MiloticScale: Why did you decide to make the leap and become a deviant?
Kendra-Paige: It was over nine years ago when I joined, when I was a very young teenager still grasping at expression. DeviantART was new and growing at the time, with a rather close-knit community, which was something lacking on other art communities. I believe that’s what drew me to the site at the time
People + Portraits Photography Talent SpotlightKendra-Paige has been on deviantART for over eight years now and has made a strong mark on the people and portraits gallery especially with her fashion work. Her kit consists of a Canon 5D Mark II and a Canon EF 85mm 1.2L II lens using various other lenses and focal lengths but repeatedly gravitating towards the 85mm. She uses a combination of lightroom and photoshop to post-process her work although she keeps her editing as minimal as possible as she doesn't enjoy the post-processing bit of photography!
Why did you choose people as a photographical interest?
I have always found people to be fascinating, and I have a particular interest in expressions and eyes. The eyes tend to be the focal point in a lot of my work, and typically dictate the image. Aside from this, it’s the collaborative effort that I enjoy in portraiture. When you take images of animals and nature, there is only so much control you have with the subject - a lot of it is luck

Deviousness Award

Deviousness Award
Kendra-Paige is a staple of our community at DeviantArt, and one look at her gallery will show you why. A member of the site for over eleven years, in that time she has developed and showcased a colourful and immediately-identifiable style of fashion photography that deviates wonderfully from the norm. On top of her powerful work she finds time to comment, critique, and mentor new artists while educating the community on the technical and business elements of photography. It is with great excitement that we name Kendra-Paige the recipient of the Deviousness Award for September 2015.

On Fire From Within II by Kendra-Paige
On Fire From Within II
“As if you were on fire from within.
The moon lives in the lining of your skin.”

- Pablo Neruda

Photographer: Kendra-Paige
Model & MUAH: Jade Antonie
Wardrobe: La Casa Hermosa
Assistant: Chris Brodsky

I was so glad that I was able to setup an impromptu shoot at the studio after Jade stopped by for a wardrobe fitting for an upcoming editorial. Even though we didn't have long, we were able to shoot three looks, and I had the opportunity of testing out some new equipment. Always love working with Jade, she's just stunning!

Comedic Caique by Kendra-Paige
Comedic Caique
While feeling under the weather this weekend, I decided to do something a little different, and created a little rain forest in my studio. I had my parents bring over their large collection of exotic parrots (nearly a dozen of them), for some studio close-ups. This cheeky boy here is London, a caique.
