We recently caught up with Brittney to get to know her better!  Check out our question and answer session:

Q: How did you get interested in photography?

A: When I was 7 years old, my family and I took a trip to the San Diego Zoo! And as we talked past the bear exhibit, I took my first picture with my dad’s film camera. I actually still have that picture.

 

Q: What are your favorite things to take pictures of?

A: I love taking pictures of God’s creations. And that can be really anything. I like to find the beauty. So whether it be people, down to the oceans or up to the mountains. Everything has beauty.

 

Q: What are your hopes for the near future?

A: I hope to continue to further my photography business that glorifies God! Taking pictures for churches, and hopefully maybe becoming some kind of church advertiser or something J

 

Q: Do you find it difficult being a Christian in the world today?

A: Oh my goodness, yes! It can be very difficult. I feel as though my faith is under attack all the time. But I have learned the more you go out and be a disciple, it can get a little easier because that is when you see God really move! It is the most encouraging way to stay strong in the world that is trying to tear us down. Remember this: The world is not our home, we are just merely walking through it. Our destination is HEAVEN.

 

Q:  What great moments have you experienced along your journey so far? Any challenges?

A:  There are challenges every day. Whether it be in just school, family or spiritual battles. These challenges can always be overcome. I don’t believe in the saying that people say now a days that goes something like this: God won’t give you anything more than you can handle. Even though some people back this up with 1 Corinthians, we have completely twisted that beautiful piece of scripture. The truth is that God might give us something that we can’t handle so that we look to Him! I think that is even more beautiful. We are not meant to go through these trials alone.

 

Q:  Do you ever travel to different places to take photos?  If so, what has been your favorite location to photograph so far?

A:  I kind of go all over! I love to travel. I have family and friends all over the world. I just recently went to Fort Bragg California and fell completely in love! God is BEAUTIFUL.

 

Q:  What Bible verses inspire you the most?  Do you have a favorite?

A:  My favorite one is 1 Peter 4: 1-4 (Since therefore Christ suffered in the flesh, arm yourselves with the same way of thinking, for whoever has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, so as to live for the rest of the time in the flesh no longer for human passions but for the will of God. For the time that is past suffices for doing what the Gentiles want to do, living in sensuality, passions, drunkenness, orgies, drinking parties, and lawless idolatry. With respect to this they are surprised when you do not join them in the same flood of debauchery, and they malign you). This verse helped me stand out in a good way and get through the temptations of high school.

 

Q:  Do you have any advice for aspiring photographers?

A:  Use your gift to inspire others. To boast through Jesus and for Jesus. Experiment always with different styles J

 

Q:  What do you like to do to in your free time?

A:  I love reading, drawing, photographing, singing (worship) and blogging! I am sure there are many other things, but that is what I find myself doing most frequently.

 

Q:  When did you decide you wanted to be a photographer?

A:  Right after that first sound of the shutter when I used my dad’s camera! J

 

Q:  If you could describe yourself in 5 words, what would they be?

A:  Sinner, BOLD, Compassionate, artistic, consciousness

 

Q:  What steps did you take / are you taking to learn more about photography?

A:  Looking at photographers who inspire me. Testing out new things. Looking up YouTube videos!

 

Q:  After people fall in love with your pictures (which they obviously will!), how can they get their own copy of them?

A:  Right here! All kinds of other goodies for sale 🙂 society6.com/BrittneyBorowski (http://society6.com/BrittneyBorowski)

 

Q:  What would you say to encourage others who are trying to follow their dreams?

A:  Pray. Pray. Pray. That YOUR dreams align with HIS dreams. If you need encouragement, reach out to people. I am always available for help J just message me!
