OCTAVIA HUNTER, an award-winning photographer, received her BFA degree from the Film Department at the University of Oregon. In high demand for her portrait, wedding and food photography, she is based in Portland, OR as well as traveling all over the United States and abroad. Devoted to the environment and healthful living, Octavia made a bold move in 2011 and traded in her car for a bicycle and has immersed herself in viewing her city through a new, less-rushed perspective, one that allows photographic opportunities at every turn.
Combining stop motion animation has allowed her to blend art forms beyond the still, and she is currently a film Director of Photography, working on an interactive portrait series and book, titled Letting Go, and an awards ceremony in New York. Her website is octaviahunter.com.
