I'm Sasha, the person behind the lens at From Stardust. For as long as I could remember, I've always had the urge to capture the beauty around me. On a solo trip to Europe in 2007 I discovered the medium of photography and fell in love. I still remember the day I bought my first Holga film camera in a shop in Vienna, Austria. I had so much fun taking roll after roll of photos using that unassuming plastic camera. The pictures turned out fuzzy, full of light leaks and unexpected compositions, but they perfectly embodied my fun and spontaneous trip.
Since then I've upgraded my equipment but still believe the best photos aren't captured by the most expensive camera, and I always keep a few film cameras on rotation. And my motivation for taking photos still remains the same: to find the beauty in the ordinary and capture both the big and small moments in life in an unique way.
I'm not taking photos, I enjoy vintage hunting and long walks with my dog. My favorite meal is breakfast and my happy
place is on a trail surrounded by fragrant Ponderosas in the Sierra
My approach to photography is inspired by my love for film: it's less about perfection and more about capturing genuine moments artfully and spontaneously. I love any opportunity to play with light and perspective to create unique photos that are still natural. Most of all, these photos are about YOU, whether it's a wedding, an elopement, families and babies, I want to help capture these beautiful memories with my photos that will take you right back to the day they were taken.
