I initially joined DA as a photographer on my other account, :iconthe-sashimi-frog:, but when I began adding drawings and fan art into the mix, I decided it was time to create a separate account only for photography.  I also wanted to get serious about my hobby, and needed a stronger, online presence--thus 10,000 Greetings::Photography by Catherine Miskow--was born.  In addition to this account, I created a full portfolio website that I maintain when I have the time.

This account represents only my photographic work, and only the ones that I want to showcase, among them, my prize winners, which have won at juried competitions.  Here are some of them:
Fishing Nets and Floats by 10000Greetings Honorable Mention=>Still Life Photography Photography Division=>San Mateo County Fair, 2004
Chinese Fans by 10000Greetings2nd Place=>Still Life Photography Division=>San Mateo County Fair, 2008
Shade by 10000Greetings3rd place=>Still Life Photography Division=>San Mateo County Fair, 2008
Trinity by 10000Greetings3rd place=>Religious or Inspirational Photography Division=>San Mateo County Fair, 2012
Purification by 10000GreetingsHonorable Mention=>Still Life Photography Division=>San Mateo County Fair, 2013
Kwannon Statues by 10000GreetingsHonorable Mention=>Religious or Inspirational Photography Division=>San Mateo County Fair, 2013

I have also taken to selling my work at local art shows, selling framed prints, notecards, or unframed prints.

United States
I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, but have spent a lot of time in both Paris and Japan. I am an adjunct professor of French and Japanese, and so my work takes me to sites around the world for conferences, giving me plenty of opportunities to take photos in my spare time.

I have exhibited my work at both the San Mateo County Faire and the annual Foster City Art and Wine Festival and have won several awards for my still-life works. Some of my work is featured in the book Images of America: Foster City (Arcadia Publishing, 2005), to which I was also a contributing writer.…

When shooting travel photography, I try to capture the essence of the locale—the people, the colors, the food, the daily lifestyles, and, of course, the famous monuments. Of all the places I’ve visited, Paris remains my favorite to photograph." An upcoming series, entitled ‘Paris: Ville Touriste, Ville Insolite’ (Paris: Hidden Gems in a Tourist City) will showcase both the world famous and the hidden sides of the city.

Although I specialize in studio still lifes and travel photography, I try not to limit myself to any one style or genre, as you will see in my "Other Photos" section. I have photographed flowers, marine life, animals and modes of transportation, civil aircraft being my favorite.

All of the pieces shown here are available for purchase through DA or through me directly. Note me if you are interested in any of the pieces.
