About Growing up in the middle of the country in the middle of a family of 8, Circe Bamgartner learned how to express her love of art at a young age. Throughout her childhood she explored many different creative outlets from poetry to acting, painting, and drawing. At the age of 16 she won an award for best Fine Art photo in Denver, Colorado, which inspired her to build a black and white darkroom under the stairs in her childhood home. After feeling like she could only teach herself so much, she decided to further her knowledge and technique by attending Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, CA. Since completing her education she has shown work in Munich, Germany, worked with MTV and has begun directing music videos and short Films. She currently resides in Denver, CO.
