Sarah Anderson has been photographing throughout her life. Raised in a media and film centered family, she took her first formal photography class in high school. When her (now grown) children were small, photography became her main artistic outlet, as well as a way to document small-kid-time, family, and the life of the community. Her personal work expanded and 1988 Sarah established her company, Windline Design.
Working in the astronomy field as a technician, she was able to include photography and documentation in her day job- and in late 2011 she had the opportunity to devote herself full time to photography.
A pivotal event in her photographic journey was attending a photography workshop on Molokai at Hui Ho’olana in 2001. The workshop was given by National Geographic photographers, Rik Cooke and DeWitt Jones. Just prior to the workshop, David Becker began publishing the local newspaper, Hamakua Times, and invited Sarah to be the staff photographer (a position she still holds). Through the years she has documented many public events, people and the changing face of the Hamakua Coast.
Along with her commercial photography work, Sarah is collaborating with University of Hawaii faculty and staff to archive and promote the historical Christensen Photographic Collection.
