Rachael Short is a fine art photographer based in Carmel, California. After graduating from the Brooks Institute, Rachael had a thriving wedding and portrait photography business, which ended in 2010 when she was in a car accident that broke her neck and left her paraplegic. Nowadays, Rachael uses her iPhone as her primary tool, and makes beautiful platinum prints from her iPhone images. I talked with Rachael about her work, the town we're both from, the gallery she owns, and her experience as a board member with the Center for Photographic Art. For the second segment, we talked about the importance of supporting the people in our communities.
