Contact Cassandra of Gilded Lens

Cassandra is an artist living in the American Midwest who specializes in Fine Art Fantasy photography and retouching. Her first foray into the realm of Fantasy started early in her childhood, devouring books like The Lord of the Rings Trilogy and The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien, as well as the Shannara series by Terry Brooks. In high school she focused on digital media with graphic and website design, then later moved to retouching photographs for her own personal websites. In 2007, she acquired her first DSLR for a trip to Australia (in order to take hundreds of pictures of kangaroos). When she came back from her trip abroad, she switched her lens to portraiture with a focus on costuming and bringing the fantasy realm to life.
