My Story

Hello, my name is Cara Brewer. I was born and raised in South Dakota, a land of vast space and lonely beauty. My Great Plains upbringing influences the way I look through the viewfinder. My hope is to connect with those, those who might like to experience the openness that welcomed me into the world, through images that moved me enough to point and shoot.

I have self published three books of my images and poetry. 

“My camera is my courage and photography is my joy. Everything around me gifts the opportunity to feel connected if my camera and I are invited to do so.”

– Cara Brewer
