Blog : Green Alliance Welcomes Lenka Flaherty Photography!

The Green Alliance is proud to welcome Lenka Flaherty Photography!

Flaherty first fell in love with the medium of photography as a child in the Czech Republic. Watching her parents snap photos as they traveled inspired a life-long passion within Flaherty to try and capture the beauty of the nature with her camera lens.

"Nature to me is what is important, it's the place where we live, the place we enjoy, and to me mountains and woods and rivers give me satisfaction to be in and around," said Flaherty.

Flaherty earned her Masters in Environmental Engineering before moving to the United States in 2003 where she pursued her passion for photography at the New Hampshire Institute of Art in Manchester. She studied with some of the top names in the wedding photography industry including; Kevin Focht, Doug Gordon and David Ziser.

Today Flaherty is one of the most requested photographers in the area. Her portraits and wedding portfolio gorgeously capture her clients' happiest moments. With her travel and environmental photography, Flaherty hopes to inspire all those who view her work to recognize the beauty of our planet's natural landscapes and wildlife and work to preserve it.

Green-minded in her business, Flaherty makes use of the digital photography medium, which reduces product waste, and uses recycled packaging materials, rechargeable camera batteries and encourages clients to plan weddings that don't require long-distance travel to avoid hazardous emissions.

Flaherty is passionate about her work and has said that she is lucky to have been able to turn a passion into a career. It's rare for a person to be able to travel as much as Flaherty does, from Iceland to the mountains of New Hampshire, but its what drives her to create visually stunning work.

"I always have to go see what's on the other side of the wall, the other side of the river, the other side of the mountain," said Flaherty. "They say the grass is not always greener somewhere else, but I always have to go see for myself, I always have the need to go and see any place I can."

Flaherty is currently the artist in residence at the Green Alliance. Her work can be viewed at our offices at 75 Congress Street in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
