Denise Chambers
Still Photographer


How did you become part of this film project?
I was reading through my monthly issue of Curve magazine and came across an article about Pam and Juliet, the upcoming movie, and Pam’s desire to start a production company here in Colorado Springs. As soon as I read the article, I knew I needed to get involved. As luck would have it, within a week or so I found myself at a celebration dinner sitting next to Tree, who portrays Diane in the film. The conversation found it’s way to Camille’s Magic and I asked Tree if the production had a still photographer. The next day I got a call to join the production.

Why did you get involved?
A film about lesbians set in Colorado Springs….A film by lesbians from Colorado Springs…how could I resist.

What is your day job?
I am a self-employed professional photographer here in Colorado Springs. I specialize in travel, sports, and lifestyle photography for the editorial and corporate markets.

Have you always been interested in filmmaking? Please explain.
I have always a thought it would be fun to be a still photographer on set but I didn’t really start getting interested in filmmaking until a few years ago. Over the last few years I have become increasingly interested in cinematography. I suppose it’s a logical progression.

What is your favorite movie and why?
I don’t think I could name just one. There are so many movies I enjoy, from slapstick comedies to the epic films. I think the first film I watched that really made me say, “wow” was Out of Africa. It was the first movie I had seen that brought all aspects of the film together in such a fantastic way…visually stunning, fabulous acting, and great sound. Most recently one of my favorite films has been O Brother Where Art Thou. I am not a huge fan of George Clooney but the story/writing was great and every frame of that film could have stood alone as a still photograph.

What do you hope to gain from this experience?
I hope to learn as much about the film making process as I can while helping to make this movie a success.
