I'll start out by stating that I am a big fan of John Denver music. (You probably already knew that). As much as I enjoy his
Wisconsin Landscape Photography
John Denver music, Denali & Me
Do you enjoy photography that allow you to escape to the location of the image, to feel the breeze, to hear the wind through the canopy, to capture the serenity and emotional attachment of just being present?
Having always enjoyed nature photography, and combined with my degree in, and lifelong interest of the natural sciences, I often visualized photographic opportunities while driving many miles in my previous sales career. My interest though, in both photography and the natural environment, never waned. Following my conversation with Denali (true story), on Friday, October 13, 2006 I retired early from Motorola and committed to landscape photography full-time.
As a self-taught, award-winning Wisconsin landscape nature photographer, my photographic goal has always been to "give a voice" to the land and the natural environment, (paraphrasing a John Denver lyric from "Wild Montana Skies") in my own small way.
When initially looking through the viewfinder, I hear the music that exists within the scene. Each aspect becomes one instrument playing its part in the total composition. Rather than simply documenting what lies before me, I strive to allow you - the viewer of the final print - to feel what I felt at that location, to enjoy its "musical composition".
In my humble opinion, while labs and other services can make a print from a photographer's file, only the artist can transfer their full vision of the initial image to the physical media and resulting print.
Combining thoughtful image creation with strategic development and skillful printing, as the artist, I am able to create the envisioned artistic print with the desired image detail, natural colors and emotional attachment.
I believe that art is not a commodity . Each creation contains the uniqueness brought forth by the artist. (Once again, the very reason I print my prints). The market for my fine art prints, consequently, are those who fully understand and appreciate this uniqueness.
Look on the lower right corner of your print. There, you will find my individually and personally hand-signed signature, your "certificate of authenticity". I do not use a digital signature on any of my fine art prints.
