Tammy Gaulter is a New Orleans artist. Her first experience with photography was in 1975 while helping her mother do a survey for Polaroid cameras. The 60 second print development to view her picture was instant gratification. From that moment, Tammy's love of photography began. In 1984, she worked as a portrait photographer in a local family portrait business photographing children, high school seniors and families. In 1995, she went out on her own to start a part time photography business while raising her two children.
In January 2006, she began photographing the city and its historic attractions. Her particular interest favored the "Cities of the Dead".
Tammy's new collection of work has incorporated acrylic paint with her photos affixed to reclaimed wood. Through her work, she hopes the world can see the beauty of this very unique and special city.
