50 States – Montana with Lynn Liebers

Lynn Liebers – “The beauty in the places I have lived feeds my soul”.

This week, The Creative Chair is in Montana talking photography with Lynn Liebers.

This is the 11th instalment of the 50 States series and the first time we’ve featured a photographer!

Lynn has captured some beautiful nature and landscapes, so we caught up with her to find out more about how Montana has influenced her work.

Colourful Montana

Tell us a little bit more about yourself and what you do

I am a retired registered nurse who has decided to pursue her passion for photography. I am a landscape and portrait photographer.

The Rain is Coming

I’m always searching for the light that portrays the landscapes and people in their best light. I have lived in Alaska and now live in Montana, so there is never a shortage of subjects for me!

How has your state influenced the work that you do?

The beauty in the places I have lived feeds my soul! The beauty of Montana inspires me to capture images of her that awaken the senses of the viewer!

Stormy Spring Sky

I love to capture images of the mundane yet beautiful like fences, grasses and wildflowers and old abandoned buildings.

Bridge and Rails

Young Buffalo

Of your own work, what is your favourite project and why?

My favourite image is entitled, “Old Homestead” which was shot of an old homestead in a hay field with the mountains and gorgeous blue morning sky in the background. I drive by it all the time but it never looks as beautiful as the morning I shot it!

And finally, if you died and got reincarnated as a song, what would that song be?

If I died and was reincarnated as a song I would be the country song by Tim McGraw entitled, “Humble and Kind.” I sincerely believe we are lacking in humility and kindness in this day and age unfortunately!
