What is Fine Art landscape photography? You’ll note under the Powder Hill Photography name is the tagline “Fine Art Landscape Photography”. You may be asking, “What exactly does this mean? “ One Artist’s Definition This past summer (2018), a fellow artist (painter) from nearby stopped in my booth for a few minutes during a lull…
Fine Art Landscape Photography
When you view a nature print –
– Do you enjoy mentally escaping into the scene?
– Can you feel the breeze, hear the birds, and sense the change around you?
– Are you in the “present”, capturing the scene’s serenity and emotional attachment?
“Giving a Voice”
My photographic emphasis is 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.
Music from within the Scene
When initially looking through the viewfinder, I hear the music that comes forth from within the scene. Each aspect becomes one instrument playing its part in the total composition.
I believe art is not a commodity. Rather, each creation contains the uniqueness brought forth by the artist.
Only by printing my prints myself, am I able to finalize my artistic vision for each image.
On the lower right corner of every fine art print, you’ll find my individually and personally hand-signed signature.
This is your “certificate of authenticity“
My Quick Story
I am a self-taught, award-winning, Wisconsin-based fine art landscape photographer.
From an early age, I’ve always held an interest in the natural sciences. In the 70”s, that interest merged with photography while stationed with the Navy in the California desert. Using an old Argus 35mm camera with manual light meter, the mountain and desert landscapes filled many rolls of film.
Combining my degree in, and lifelong interest of the natural sciences, I often visualized photographic opportunities while driving many miles in my previous sales career. Due to schedules, I did not have the time to commit the vision to film. My interest, though, in both photography and the natural environment never waned.
Following my conversation with Denali (true story), I retired early from Motorola on Friday, October 13, 2006 and committed full-time to landscape photography.

Along the Trail Late October (2018), I was hiking through the local state forest one morning, observing the fall color. The sky was quite cloudy, though giving an opening to the eastern morning sun periodically. Though much of this trail is in the woods, a short section skirts an open field, which hosts a variety…
On Hold (for now) In the April 2017 Powder Hill Photography newsletter I mentioned I was exploring printing on aluminum. Specifically, the product under consideration was Breathing Color’s, Allure. I use their Pura Smooth cotton rag paper exclusively. Consequently, I started with their Alure product for this venture. The Allure is a pre-cut aluminum coated with…
