Alice Lucas is a Birmingham photographer who mainly concentrates on mixed media photography. Most of the photographs she uses are taken from trips she has been on with her family and friends. Some of them have been on hikes with her dog. She learned about the technique of making mixed media photography, which uses digital skins, while attending Savannah College of Art and Design where she received a B.F.A. in photography.
She places the digital skins on wood blocks that she has covered with gold or silver leaf, which helps enhance the photo, and gives it a unique feature. Her favorite part about photography is being able to capture a memory or piece of work that someone will enjoy for a lifetime.
Her favorite part of being a photographer is being able to bring a camera with her wherever she goes and she is always able to find something new that captures her eye.
She began her own business, Allie Ray Photography, right after college to focus on photography and printing. You are able to find more of her work on her website www.allieraylucasphotography.com or on Facebook under Allie Ray Photography.
