I’m Sierra Farquhar, an adventure photographer, writer, musician, and multi-passionate creative specializing in fine art representation of athletes of all levels engaging with nature and their environment. I enjoy experimenting with storytelling methods and am fascinated by the intricate details of life lived by the individual and the collective. I love to ask questions, observe dynamics, and listen to people's stories. I gravitate towards a photojournalistic style and enjoy capturing emotional and internal moments. My favorite thing is when I get to capture authentic joy!
I am from the far northern coast of California. I grew up exploring the redwood forests and rocky coastlines of Humboldt County and I love to travel, explore, and get to know new places and people.
My love of photography began in my early years learning from my grandfather and developed into a passion pursuit when I began rock climbing and started shooting outdoor adventures and weddings. I am particularly interested in storytelling and capturing “the moments in between” - candid moments of pure emotion and experience.
I graduated from Humboldt State University in 2018 with a Bachelor of Arts in cultural anthropology, specializing in visual anthropology and social media. My research explores the impacts of social media use on culture shift in the rock climbing community and outdoor recreation industry.
I enjoy many forms of art and expression and have worked professionally as a classical singer and musician, crab fisherwoman off the coast of the Pacific Northwest, seamstress and costume designer, natural resources aide, and social dance instructor.
My clients include climbers and athletes, outdoor and environmentally-minded brands, couples, families, bands and musicians, and businesses.
