A Word from the Artist

What a privilege and a blessing for me to have you visit my website. I hope that the joy I feel when I am working with photography is evident through the collection of
images I have posted here. To see more images from my archives, please feel free to visit Never the Rock Photography on facebook and YouTube.

I started Never the Rock Photography as a professional business in 2005, although I have enjoyed capturing images of God’s breath-taking world for many years
with my camera. I have always had a strong desire to share God's glory through these images and I have been so grateful for the experiences I have had and the
relationships that have been nurtured through this business.  Offering blank note cards, calendars and other photographic gifts was just the beginning, then I began
working with local - and not-so-local galleries, restaurants, and retail stores. Over the years I have enjoyed photographing high end real estate, corporations,
restaurants and chefs, as well as working for magazines, musicians, authors, celebrities, political figures and on movie sets. I also love working with families and
pets and have forged some amazing long-lasting friendships with my clients! I have had the incredible opportunity to travel quite a bit, and I share some of my favorite
shots from the Galapagos Islands, Italy, Alaska, Africa, the Caribbean and other exotic places in my website gallery, on facebook and through my videos on
YouTube.  Now, by the grace of God, I have the amazing opportunity to assist others in photography on international
small-group tours.

Juried works, limited editions, award-winning reprints and published artwork is available for purchase. Photography workshops and public speaking engagements
are available as well.  Just give me a call or send me an email.

"I attended a recent three-week photography class with Sarina Roth and found her to be extremely
informative and exceptionally well-prepared.  She had wonderful PowerPoint presentations to
reinforce the information discussed. Additionally, she went above and beyond to ascertain each
participant’s individual goals and learning curve and sought out specific information to help each
of us at our own individual skill levels.  She welcomed all questions and researched any answers
needed to supplement the class content.  But as much as anything else, Sarina Roth is an
extremely positive, gracious, and giving person who is brimming with “good energy”.  She has
earned my highest recommendation for any service she offers."
