Diana Skibiel

 

Diana is a long time Bay Area resident and owns an equine photo and video business.

 

Her passion began at an early age: “as a child I was fascinated with photography and wanted to photograph all the wonders of my world – snowflakes, icicles, aquarium fish, clouds, horses, etc.  It was the days of film and budgets were limited.  I could scarcely believe my luck in having a photography class in eighth grade.  We worked in black and white film and developed our own prints.  It was heavenly.

 

When I was in tenth grade, my Air Force father was stationed in Thailand and we were unable to accompany him, so I became the family photographer while we lived in Norway.  The joy of taking slides with a rangefinder camera was unforgettable.  I focused on landscapes and animals, with the obligatory family photos thrown in.

 

My high school graduation present was a Canon A-1 camera.  I think I slept with it.  I traveled with it for years, capturing memories.  After I lost it in the Oakland Hills fire, I got a Canon Elan IIE.   When it needed too many repairs (due to all the opening and closing for hundreds of rolls of film), I switched to digital.  I went with a lightweight Canon PowerShot because I was also toting around a heavy Canon GL2 video camcorder.

 

The lure of the SLR camera was too great and I now use a Canon 70D and continue to capture the splendor and magnificence of my world, whether it is a landscape, a blossom, a horse, a starfish, or just algae.  I get so much joy when I am able to convey the wondrousness of it. I have added people to my list of subjects; life is too short and photographs have become my way of holding onto those special moments – to be able to relive them and to see them vividly when memories lose their details.   I hope you find some joy when you look at my photographs and they make your day a little brighter!”

 

Diana’s work will be exhibited at Moraga Country Club beginning mid-September 2014.
