Sherryl Belinsky

Sherryl is an award-winning photographer who lives in Northern Virginia. She started her love affair with photography over 40 years ago, when she bought her first SLR (film) camera – a Pentax K1000, and her boyfriend (now her husband of 37 years) who was studying Fine Art at George Washington University taught her the principles of photography. Over the years, she has continued to practice and fine tune her skills as a photographer, although when her two sons were young, they were the subjects of the majority of her photos! As her sons grew older and she had more “free time”, she picked up her camera and started looking for a variety of subjects again. Her favorite types of photography are flower and nighttime (especially fireworks!).

She bought her first digital camera in late 2001, and her latest, a mirror-less, interchangeable lens digital camera, in late 2016. About 5 years ago, she started going on safaris with WPS and taking workshops, which has enabled her to learn new techniques and refine her ever-expanding skillset.
