TWiP Talks 19: Tammy Ruggles – Finding the Light

This week I have a very interesting conversation with Tammy Ruggles. Tammy is a legally blind fine art photographer, finger painter, and writer who lives in Kentucky, USA. Many of her photos have been published in international publications — and due to her unique perspective and talent, have garnered much attention.

Tammy and I discuss some of the obvious questions regarding the challenges a legally blind photographer faces, her motivations, and more. She’s a delightfully down-to-Earth person who, despite adversity has managed to find the light.

Check out the gallery below for a look at Tammy’s work. And be sure to head over to her gallery on to see more of her work.


  1. A very inspiring episode. Tammy makes you realize that anything is possible if you have the drive and also makes your appreciate what you do have and to work through any of your issues. No excuses is the theme here. Thanks for sharing this inspiring story. I will follow her for sure.

  2. Fascinating: what an inspiring person. Top marks also to Frederick for his interview and for choosing this subject in the first place.
