photo taken by the sleepers


was created by me, Mary Tuazon, in Los Angeles, CA in 2010. It started out as an online photo diary. Being surrounded by friends and a boyfriend who are photographers, naturally I took an interest. I eventually got my own camera and just started from there. Photos are just one part of shootingpaperstars.

In 2014 I quit my retail job to do something I liked/loved. I explored different hobbies, but nothing really stuck. I eventually came across weaving and instantly got hooked. Really, it's only been a few months since I first picked it up, but it's definitely something I want to incorporate for shootingpaperstars.
