The Airtable Community Change Maker Spotlights are a new ongoing series where we will be highlighting inspirational creators across the Airtable Community. We are thrilled to be able to highlight Shae Redding – Rogers✨
LM: How would you describe yourself on the back of your autobiography?
SRR: Shae Redding – Rogers was born in Manhattan, New York by a single mother that never let her give up on her dreams and encouraged her to find her own voice. Growing up Shae always saw the hidden depths of the world that other people sometimes miss in their haste or preoccupation. Shae wanted to choose a path in life that was in line with her mind, body and soul and her studies led her to Architectural Photography. Shae enjoys being able to bring out the beauty of a space or a building that would otherwise go unnoticed or unheard. Besides her passion for photography, she also enjoys various hobbies like gardening, cooking and woodworking.

SRR: I first heard of Airtable back in 2017 but when I downloaded it I promptly got busy and didn’t come back to it until 2019 where I began dabbling but by 2020 I was a true believer and haven’t looked back since.
LM: How do you use Airtable? At work? At home?
SRR: In the beginning, I was only using Airtable to help me run my architectural photography business but the more I learned and discovered the capabilities of this amazing program I quickly began adapting it for personal use as well as business use.
