About Paula Guttilla

“It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.” - Henry David Thoreau
My passion for photography started when I received my first camera at the age of 10, a Kodak Brownie. The wonderful photos in the Life Magazines that came weekly to my home also inspired me. Now whenever I have a break in my busy life, I am either reading, studying, collecting or playing with photography. I was born and raised in Newton, Massachusetts and attended the University of Denver in Colorado. I met my husband Tom backpacking in Europe in 1972. I have worked for Jay Baxter CPA for 25 yrs as an Accountant and an Enrolled Agent. I reside in Utica, IL and have two grown children and two grandchildren.

Photography gives me the opportunity by capturing light, space and time to share through my eyes the joy, splendor and truth of life.
-I find my inspiration from nature. I love subjects that signify beauty and harmony and those usually include landscapes, sunsets, animals, flowers, birds, water reflections, butterflies and trees. I look for compositions where the interplay between light, form, color and subject inspire my heart. I am successful if the final result gives me the same reaction I felt when I took the photo.
My Current Cameras:
Canon Digital EOS 30D 8.2 Mega pixel SLR
Olympus Camedia Digital c-4040zoom 4.1 megapixel F1.8 zoom lens
