Having an absolute passion for Photography, taking many photography classes, attending web photo seminars and photo workshops, Phyllis shares her Photography skills and talent. There is a portrait studio at Gaslight & Shadows Antiques, an “on location” photo services are also offered.

This website is an exploration of how photographs shape the perception of our environments. The images transport the viewer through a variety of locations, memories, and emotive experiences.

The photos demonstrate what photography does best: engage our attention with the everyday – to what we might otherwise bypass – inspiring us to take a different perspective, another closer look at the places that surround us.  Phyllis’s images reflect a love and passion for life, people, and nature.

I owe all of my photography skills to my education at City College of San Francisco. I graduated with an AA degree in Photography, and went on the SF State University to receive a Bachelors of Arts degree in Fine Arts. I went back to City College of San Francisco 7 years ago to learn the digital side of photography, web development, computer and  business skills, and digital graphic art. Without my education at CCSF, I would not be able to continue in the business world of today. Some of the images on this website are from class assignments. See the article about my education at City College of San Francisco CCSF “Spotlight Student”.
