Trisha Herlihy was raised in a family where each of the preceding three generations had a professional photographer, though none of reputation. Albeit, Trisha says that for her generation, she’s inherited what she calls “that precious gene.” But the gene is a mixed blessing: “It demands,” she continues, “that talent must transform any God-given gifts into remarkable creations.” Native Floridian and current resident of South Florida, she dates her lifelong pursuit of photography from the gift of a Kodak 110 camera for her 8th birthday. “From then on,” she remembers, “ I was a captive of my own dream to become a photographer.”
Her passion for close-up, intimate photography that “reveals the essence of the subject” actually began with her first SLR interchangeable lens system, when she began creating what, to date, amounts to thousands of client images ----portraits, weddings, military,artwork, food, pets, architecture and virtually every conceivable subject that would present new photographic challenges to broaden her base and experience in her field---challenges, techniques and skills for professional photography.
She groomed herself to know all she could about imaging. A graduate of Broward Community College and later, of a two year study program with Richard Vom Saal, a former student of one of Trisha’s favorite photo artist Jerry Ueslman. To this day she believes Richard had the most profound impact on her style and love of the art.
Two years later she graduated with honors from The Southeast Center for Photographic Studies, where she expanded both her photography skills and lab techniques under the study of Gary Monroe. Her broad and varied professional studio experience in photography, in a wide range of cameras, developing, digital photography and specialized military work have all contributed significantly to her pursuit of the perfect photograph that illuminates and reveals her subject’s essence.
