God speaks to me through your words and images. He has given you an incredible talent! Thank you for listening to Him, and for being obedient in moving forward with your Gateway PhotoArtistry business. May God richly bless you as your talents minister to others. My Amanda loves her photo calendar!

I highly recommend Gateway PhotoArtistry. I have a framed Photo (8x10) and a 2012 calendar. The photo is beautifully framed in a classic black frame (12x15) with clear glass as the matte. This makes the photo pop, and the clear glass matte makes for a clean, sophisticated look. 

The calendar is made of the best cardboard stock with a glossy finish – not your regular thin and flimsy calendar pages. The photos are inventive, bright, & clear, and take you to some beautiful spots around the world. They exhibit the grandeur of God’s Creation and also some wistful, thoughtful shots. I can’t wait to see what the photographer finds for next year’s calendar. I have the photo and the calendar hanging in my office to keep me inspired.  Just beautiful!  Thanks for sharing your talent with the world!

Gena, I am enjoying your meaningful picture, "The Counselor," in my psychology office. Keep at it. A picture really is worth a 1000 words.

Gateway PhotoArtistry has injected an awakening spirit in me to search for more than what is on the surface. Knowing Gena Buskirk-Ford on a personal level adds on to the effect each word and imagery has on my soul. Detailed, yet applying to all; penetrating, yet highly encouraging; inspiring, yet comforting; her works do wonders beyond expected. In hard times of chaos and brokenness, I have found peace through the enlightening poetry and photography, specifically with her Candlelight photo and “Keep on the Path” poem.
