Meet Cici

Hi! I am Cynthia, or Cici for short, and I am a Junior Associate Photographer at Bronwyn Duffield Photography!

I was born in Durham, however, I have lived in Chapel Hill most of my life and I absolutely love it! If someone were to ask me what I was passionate about besides photography, I would definitely say animals (I’m guessing thats why all three of us get along so well!). I have many, probably too many pets, and taking photos of them is what introduced me to the art of photography. I love going around my house taking photos of my cats yawning, my dogs playing with each other and even photos of the song birds outside.

Ever since I was young, I dreamed of having an artistic side. I wanted to be able to draw or paint in order to express myself. However, several years ago I discovered I have absolutely no talent in drawing or painting, and frankly found it quite frustrating. Just when I was about to give up on the arts altogether, I discovered photography. To me, photography is painting with light, and it gave me inspiration to pursue the arts without having to sketch things with my hands. I also love science and math, so photography is appealing because it incorporates elements of both art and technology.

I am so thrilled to be part of Bronwyn Duffield Photography!
