About the photographer

When Norma McGehee Woodward received her first camera, a Brownie Hawkeye, as a pre-teen in Mississippi, an entire new world opened for her. She was always artistic, but that simple box camera introduced the amazing possibilities of photography and her cameras still keep that passion alive.

Norma has received numerous awards in national juried and regional shows. She has had images juried into the Amanda Smith Gallery in Johnson City, TX; Fredericksburg Center for the Creative Arts, Fredericksburg, VA; Joseph Miller Center for the Photographic Arts in Gainesville, VA; Dragonfly Gallery, Austin, TX; the Coastal Arts League, Half Moon Bay, CA; 1650 Gallery, Los Angeles, CA; PhotoPlace Gallery, Middlebury VT; Darkroom Gallery, Essex Junction, VT; ArtSpace, Richmond, VA; the VMRC All-Media juried show at the Park Gables Gallery in Harrisonburg, VA; and an international exhibition in Serbia.

She is a member of the Center for Photographic Art, Carmel, CA; the Fredericksburg Center for the Creative Arts, Fredericksburg, VA; Brush Strokes Gallery, Fredericksburg, VA; the Jackson Photographic Society, Jackson, MS; the Texas Photographic Society, San Antonio, TX; the Center for Fine Art Photography, Fort Collins, CO; and the Photographic Society of America.

Her twin passions are photography and travel. Originally from Jackson, MS, she and her husband Les have lived in Fredericksburg VA since 1963.
