Armetrice Cabine, Roswell Chapter
In our newsletters, we feature short profiles of GNPA members from across the state. In this issue, it’s Armetrice Cabine, of the Roswell Chapter.
When did you become a GNPA member? I don’t recall. I purchased my DSLR camera in 2015, and joined GNPA shortly after.
What is your occupation? I am currently retired. Prior to that I was an engineer with AT&T for 32 years.
How did you get into photography? It started as a hobby when I was 14 years old. I put my camera down during college and picked it back up when I began traveling as an adult.
What are your favorite photography subjects? I love photographing children, landscapes and wildlife. I also enjoy flower and macro photography.
What are your favorite places to shoot? I love the Smokey Mountains and any of the national parks.
What would be your photographic “dream trip”? Tanzania, to see the great migration.
Which camera body and lenses do you use most often? I use my Nikon D850 and my 70-200mm lens most often, but I just purchased the Nikon Z9 and I look forward to making that my go-to camera.
What are your go-to websites for photography information? Not really. I love YouTube for learning to edit and enhance my photographs.
Have any photographers inspired you? Yes, I love the work of Bryan Peterson and I have traveled with him on several occasions.
What’s your favorite part of belonging to GNPA? Being around other photographers who enjoy nature photography as much as I do and seeing all of the great photographs that our members create.
Something interesting about you that most people do not know: I’m a bookworm. When I’m not out photographing, you can find me listening to a good book. I moved to audio books after donating over 70 books to the Woodstock Public Library.
Where are you from? I was born in Arkansas but raised in Flint, Michigan, so I consider myself a Flintstone and a Michigander.
