Who I am

My name is Abigail Schmidt, but you can call me Abbi.

I’ve always been drawn to photography, but I became serious about it during my sophomore year of college. I continue to push myself each day in order to create more imaginative and inspiring work.

I am young, as you can see, so I have a lot to learn about life, but there are a few things I know for sure: Kindness is always an option, you’re almost always richer than you think, and life is better when you don’t take yourself too seriously. Photography, among other things, has given me the opportunities to learn these lessons in life and I know it will continue to teach me many more.

Photography is more than taking pictures, it’s about creating something that makes people stop and think. It’s about turning familiar interactions and scenes back into novel moments. Photographers are more than people who capture light, they are experts in nature, science, human behavior, food, architecture, fashion, sports; I could go on and on. We are curious, we are analytical, but most of all, we have a passion to create.
