[Studio MV] Artist Profile : Randi Baird

February 28, 2011

Martha’s Vineyard, MA — Sitka Creations is happy to have had the opportunity to use the work of Island photographer Randi Baird, during 2010.

By Michala Smith

New York City native Randi Baird visited the small, picturesque island of Martha’s Vineyard in her teens, never expecting that she would eventually become a full-time resident. Ms. Baird has been a photographer for over two decades and has been featured in several publications, including Cape Cod Life, Martha’s Vineyard Magazine, and Edible Vineyard. Having been raised in an urban environment, moving to Martha’s Vineyard fifteen years ago turned out to be a huge culture shock for Ms. Baird. Instead of occupying the streets of San Francisco and Manhattan, she found herself becoming fully immersed in the rural lifestyle of Martha’s Vineyard. Ms. Baird is a cofounder of a non-profit organization on the island called Island Grown Initiative, whose goal is to support farmers with an array of programs. She is a local activist and a dedicated photographer whose work is diverse yet distinct. Although she is an exceptional wedding photographer, Ms. Baird portfolio includes architecture, food, and environmental portraiture. She is constantly updating her blog, which exhibits her past, published and current work.
