Our header photo was shot by Holly Carpenter who was born and raised in Burlington. She started doing photography in the early 2000s with what, a the time, was a very familiar camera: the point and shoot. Shortly after she upgraded to the SLR. In 2008, she joined the world of digital. And without any formal classes or training, Holly began pursuing a career as a photographer. Her learning process included reading tons of books, a lot of trial and error and, too many Youtube videos to count during which she discovered a love for night photography. The header image is just one example of her passion and discovery of the beauty that can be found in the night that surrounds us. If you want to see more, Holly sells her work every year at the Annual Craft Show held at Memorial Auditorium the first full weekend in December. Stop by to say hello.

All of Holly’s photographs are available for purchase. You can see more of her work @
