Profotos Member Biography - Jodi Scyphers

I have lived in Idaho my entire life. For the past 15 years I have worked as a whitewater rafting guide during the summer. Besides being able to take action and scenery shots, I found that I really enjoyed taking candid photos of my guests when they had no idea that the moment was being captured. They enjoyed the pictures that were true to the experience and not staged to make the 'perfect portrait.'

As my new found interest grew, so did my bill at the local store specializing in cameras and custom developing. To help support my hobby I took a part time position in their photo lab. For 10 years I printed photos on a Konica Nice Print system, and did custom enlargements {which I loved doing} in the darkroom. I loved being able to see the wide variety of images that came through the lab each day. During that time I developed a strong opinion of what I believe makes a good image and what does not. So many of the pictures that I printed over the years seemed so busy and full of clutter, I think there is an art to knowing when less is more.

When digital cameras first became popular I tried to convince myself that they were a passing phase. I said that I would never go digital. I finally broke down and got one and fell in love with the freedom of being able to edit my own work at home. I left my job at the lab to pursue a career as a freelance photographer and editor.

Recently I have been experimenting with creating custom frames that tie in directly with the photo. I have had some frames that I felt turned out fantastic and others that I tossed in to the reject pile. I love the finished product when the photo and frame become one merged piece of art.
