Photographers who have helped shape my photographic practice

A last minute change in the program resulted in a fabulous night with Susan Buchanan. The title for the evening was “Photographers who have helped shape my photographic practice

Susan is well know in the photography community for her work and for also being the President of Northside Creative Photography Club for 10 years. She has a tremendous passion for the art and it really showed during the night.

People and words have helped shape Susan’s photography and below is just a few of the people and the words that were shared with club members.



A wonderful poem called The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost.

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,

And sorry I could not travel both

And be one traveler, long I stood

And looked down one as far as I could

To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,

And having perhaps the better claim,

Because it was grassy and wanted wear;

Though as for that the passing there

Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay

In leaves no step had trodden black.

Oh, I kept the first for another day!

Yet knowing how way leads on to way,

I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh

Somewhere ages and ages hence:

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—

I took the one less traveled by,

And that has made all the difference.

Susans final words were:

“If there is one take away from tonight it is this, pay attention to your heart and soul”
