Beginning her career in 1998 in Austin, Texas, Tina Weitz worked as a successful architectural photographer for over 20 years. As time passed and Austin grew, she began exploring and focusing on fine art. She owned and operated studio2gallery and photomethode in Austin, working with national and local artists. She was also gallery assistant director for Flatbed Press and Gallery for 2 years, where she loved to learn the photogravure and printmaking processes. In 2017 Tina moved to Washington State and in 2019 became a collaborating artist with Creekside Studio in Austin. Her imagery focuses on alternative photography processes such as photogravures and instant film.
Tina's background includes being a selected artist for Austin Bergstrom International Airport's National Visual Arts Month and later chosen to create ABIA's 5th Anniversary Celebration Limited edition print. The artwork won an international award for works judged from international airports worldwide. Her hand-manipulated Polaroid prints have been exhibited nationally and internationally—taking a tour visiting Nice, France and throughout Europe with the Texas Photographic Society. She has also been featured in many magazines and in several books, including Borderlands Texas Poetry Review and Celebrating the Lonestar Millennium with forward by Dan Rather.
