"When I come across something that excites me, I see the picture in my mind's eye and I make the photograph - and I give it to you, the equivalent of what I saw & felt."

Constance Reid - Fine Art Photographic Artist

 

With an adventurous spirit, insatiable wanderlust and a passion for road tripping, I love being outdoors and exploring all the places my heart, wheels and passport lead me.  With camera in hand, photography has become a compelling means to exploration.  It is much more than a passionate, creative outlet.  It seems essential my soul.  I am driven by my personal mantra, "A grateful heart sits at a continual feast."  I believe that the more you are willing to see and feast upon with your eyes and heart, the more there is - thus, my love affair with the camera.  As I seek to express the emotional response I experience being in a place and become totally immersed in doing so, I find myself in a state of mindfulness...nearly a meditation.  That mindfulness gives birth to a feeling of peace and immense appreciation and gratitude for both the complexity and simplicity of the world we live in.

 

I was given my first camera, a Kodak Brownie, when I was eight years old.  Since that time, I have enjoyed documenting my life and sharing my view of the world.  My first serious work was in 35mm and 4x5 film.  I fell in love with the chemical magic that would take place in the darkroom and would thrill with the prospect of spending an afternoon there.  With digital imaging I realized the endless possibilities it presented by allowing me to "create" art with my camera in a way that wasn't possible before.  I began to absorb myself in learning all I could about this timeless medium through self-study, numerous classes, workshops, and endless hours of experimentation.

 

Home for me is now in Northern California Wine Country where I reside with my husband and little road tripper, Sophie.  I am blessed that this passion has presented me with numerous awards and recognition.  I am gratified that my work hangs in public and private collections throughout the world.

 


Several of Constance' works can be seen at Stix and Stones Gallery in Calistoga, CA, Art Gallery Napa Valley and the Wine Loft in downtown Benecia. She is also a regular participant in Napa Valley Open Studios.

I saw your work while trying to find an address to another Constance, Constance Leto, (also a photographer) to send a heartfelt letter for taking on the task of being a struggling single mother and to thank her for raising her children to live their dreams and supporting their creativity. And to tell her that her son's song gave me something so profound in my life that was taken from me at a young age.
I saw your gallery and had to stop by and tell you how beautiful and stunning your work is! I could stare all day at such photography, especially black and white photos.

Constance, I was doing my regular front desk greeting at the Art Gallery for the Napa Valley Art Association, when my wife came in. (Okay, I knew she was coming!) She fell in love with the photo of the Bristle Cone pine and bought it for her tree-loving sister. We are both pleased and Cindy will love it when she receives it!
