Gerri started her journey with her camera in 2000 as a creative outlet. She is self-taught and has taken several online courses along the way. Gerri began sharing her passion for photography, leading groups on photo walks downtown Buffalo through her local meet-up photography group for several years. She enjoys photographing all subjects and especially the challenge of new ways to see through the creative use of Lensbaby lenses. She has beta tested new lenses for Lensbaby over the past two years prior to their release and some of her work can be found on Lensbaby.com.
Gerri’s images have been featured in several publications including, Nature’s Best Magazine, Erie Canal Statewide Photo Calendars, Tourism Guides, The Discover-Buffalo Niagara Calendars and several local commercial proposals for various companies. She also has reviewed several photography books for development by Focal Press Publications.
