A Little About Me
Paige Craig’s photography is timeless, sensual, elegant, and bold. “My mission is to reveal the connection between the body, the earth, and the soul,” she says with quiet repose. “It was a revelation to feel the spirituality of nature and the innate freedom created by being exposed. I live to generate that liberty of self expression.”
Jumping off from an early career in modeling, she found herself more intrigued with the manipulation of light and bodies before the lens. Paige’s vision soon found her professional work as a photographer. Her commercial and fashion photographic works have been published worldwide, including global campaigns for BMW motorcycles, international portraits for Starbucks, fashion campaigns for Nordstrom, SLINK jeans, NYDJ, Grey Ant, Maxim magazine, and countless independent labels… the list goes on. She has developed talent for modeling agencies like Wilhelmina, Ford, IMG, LA Models, Elite… Her art has taken her (and her subjects) all over the world.
But to call her a photographer, an artist of light, is alone yet not far enough, for her exploration of life and language, spirituality and sex, light and shadow, music and poetry shine out from her tireless inquisitiveness into their mysterious, deeply human origins. These passions come to nexus in the fertile living extension of herself, the small sanctuary she named Ghost Gardens, where she now lives. Paige’s reputation for skill is second to her well known ability to make friends with anyone and everyone. She is warm, humble, friendly, playful, and irresistibly charming. A celebrity, a magician, a comedian, a sexual empowerment guru, and a gardener…. the beginning of a joke? No… just a random afternoon in Ghost Gardens. Here, human creation is given free license to find it’s own way. In this rambling, wild, organic tiny corner of Los Angeles, Paige has created a unique farm in the very heart of urbanity, where she and her many animal and human friends can roam and be safe to express. Here she and her familiars come to let the chemistry of creative passion bear the best fruit. Now this sacred space has given new inspiration to more personal artistic creative avenues for her to explore in her words and pictures. Paige’s investigation of light’s play on “Bodies in Nature” have been produced here. Her photos in this series are the crystallization of the passions of Paige’s purest creative expression: beauty, grace, nature, and most particularly, love are painted here in the boldest strokes. “Bodies in Nature” is the sensual and spiritual connection with humanity and nature. Paige’s mission is to reconnect people to the innate oneness of earth and body, where we may commune with Spirit and find tranquility and recharge our souls.
Paige pushes her community to stay inspired and giving. IAMPAIGECRAIG donated 1200 greeting cards bearing the “heart in hand” image to LA Earth Angels, a volunteer network that will use the cards for personalized greetings for recipients of Meals on Wheels. Spread the love…give a little joy.
