Senior Gabby Martuszewski is known for her passion for photography. She developed an interest when she took Photography 1 as an elective in her freshman year. Martuszewski says she prefers taking pictures of people but says she’s also good at photographing scenery. Although she doesn’t look up to any famous photographers, she says photography teacher Wade Bowers has been a major influence in her photography.
Bowers says that Martuszewski shows a great work ethic but also does projects on a larger scale, which is unique; instead of taking two to three pictures, she’ll take twenty to forty pictures. “Gabby is very unique in that she very well rounded in her photography. Some students enjoy photographing people. Some students photography subjects like landscapes. Gabby has done an excellent job of photographing a variety of subject matter and doing it well. She continues to develop a creative eye when photographing,” said Bowers.
Senior Kylie Taylor has been a fan of Martuszewski’s photography. “I can easily point out Gabby’s photography because it is so unique and creative. She really takes time to plan out her pictures which makes them very successful. Her pictures have meaning and show emotion that makes them stand out from others. I can’t wait to see where her photography takes her in her future. I am amazed at Gabby’s photography skills and how quickly she has developed them. Considering she has only been doing photography for a couple years, she is outstanding because her photos look like a professional’s,” said Taylor.
In the future, Martuszewski plans on attending Towson University to major in nursing and minor in photography. She wants to be a photographer as a side job.
When asked what advice she could give to those interested in photography, she only had one thing to say. “Just keep trying, take multiple pictures, never get discouraged from one bad shot, you can grow,” said Martuszewski.
