“Taking a photograph is easier than ever,” says Montana’s Kae Cheatham, a member of the Helena Photographic Society. “The digital age has truly given many people the opportunity to capture their memories and fantasies, and upload them to the World Wide Web.” While Cheatham finds this global influx of photographs exhilarating, she is aware that professional photographers can often be lost in the slush of amateurs. “I decided it was necessary to take my images to another level so they would be unique from other works.”
Kae Cheatham has been a professional photographer since 1987 when she began capturing various equine events and rural activities on film. Traditional 35mm SLRs were her cameras of preference in the 1980s and ’90s, but since 2002 she has embraced the digital era. Today she has an online presence through her personal website, a FaceBook Fan Page, and the commercial outlet at Fine Art America (FAA). Some of her images are from her film days, that she has scanned into her computer and given new life with Internet exposure.
Along with “Digital Enhancement,”
Kae’s FAA galleries include “Made in Montana” for Montana scenes and interests, “Americana”
that has a selection of vintage and old-style images, including scenes from historical reenactments, “Horses” to highlight some of the images that began her photographic career Her “Greeting Cards” gallery offers images with phrases, and at FAA buyers can have their own messages written on the inside of the 5x7 card. Gift stores can buy note cards in volume at substantial discounts. The “Sales Here and There” gallery shows images she has sold online and at the five-to-ten regional art shows she attends each year.
Through the years, Kae’s photographs have been used in many publications, including American Cowboy, Royal Wings (an international in-flight magazine), Bloodlines, and Pro Rodeo World (along with her articles); photos have been included as illustrations in several books. Twenty-four gallery images were exhibited in Helena, Montana’s The Myrna Loy Center for Performing and Visual Media during March, 2014. Her unique images are represented by The Art Scene gallery in Dillon, Montana; digital abstracts are available at the Paris Gibson Square Museum (Great Falls, Montana) gift shop.
