About the photographer;
Holly Peterson began her photographic career under the guidance of her parents Keith and Mickey Peterson and grandfather, Robert L. Ball.
The Ball Studio is located in downtown Corvallis on 6th street and is
the oldest continually family owned portrait photography studio in the
country. After graduating from OSU with a liberal arts degree she
joined the family business and today is the owner and portrait photographer for the studio.
She has won numerous awards for her portraiture and holds an associate fellow of photography
degree from the Professional Photographers of Oregon. In 2012 she was presented with
an outstanding service to the photographic industry award from the Professional Photographers of America.
What excites me about my work is bringing an image up to its full potential in a wall portrait.
When we live with a portrait everyday in our home it becomes a lasting personal connection.
I have been so blessed to find my career at an early age and to still find it exciting and
rewarding today. Although I have changed from shooting my subjects with Hasselblad film
cameras to digital Nikons, the elements of good portraiture remain the same in the digital age.
When invited to judge photography by my peers I'm still looking for emotional impact and
command of portrait lightings.
I'm inspired by beautiful lightings, good photographic execution and whether my subject(s) are
children, a family, dogs or a high school senior, they are in front of my camera because someone loves them.
