Theresa LoSchiavo's photography is about
capturing a moment. Her photographs illustrate the sensual side of
women, while sensing the beauty within. Her touch of class is a rarity
that is not often seen, which draws compliments from around the world on
her web site, www.museme.com. She has a talent for discovering humanity
within people, a skill that developed in her growing up in New York.
In a sense, Theresa LoSchiavo accidentally became a photographer. As a teenager in New York, she aspired to be a veterinarian, but abandoned that pursuit after she signed up for a photography class in high school. The moment Theresa stepped into a darkroom she was hooked. She studied at the School of Visual Arts in New York City where she graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 1979. During that time, her art was displayed in the Metropolitan Museum of Art and in galleries of Soho.
Eventually, Theresa moved to Washington State and began her business photographing horses and then, weddings- which ultimately led to her signature specialty of photographing women.
Theresa photographs diverse women of all ages. From housewives to SWAT officers- none of the women have been professional models. Theresa is all about individual allure. She elegantly uses a combination of black and white photography with real women in natural settings to best portray the depth of female intimacy. At the end of the day, the final result of her work is what inspires Theresa to do what she excels at- the intimate portrait.
