If you’ve had the opportunity to review my web site and image gallery extensively, you’ve noticed the lack of wildlife images.
There is one gallery for wildlife, the rest all cover landscape photography, albeit much of it Wisconsin landscape photography. While I enjoy watching wildlife, including the deer, turkeys and many song birds right out my office window, I am not captivated by wildlife from a photographic pursuit.
Rather, what captivates me are the landscapes of this earth and the natural beauty that lives upon it. My tag line sums this up quite accurately, ” Fine Art Landscape Photography”. I like to quote the line from John Denver’s “Wild Montana Skies” “giving a voice … to the land that we live on”, which probably best summarizes my purpose for my photography.
When I set out on each photographic endeavor, the goal is to capture the landscape as I see it. I then process those images to that artistic vision.
Sometimes the images present themselves, and other times I’ve simply gone for a hike with backpack full of camera equipment.
The few animal images I do capture are a result not of any particular skill I possess. Rather, they pretty much wandered into an area I was photographing, and are typically photographed relative to their surrounding landscape. When it comes to wildlife, I’d rather watch them than photograph them. I’m dedicated to landscape photography, driven by the passion to and association with the natural surroundings, striving to produce the highest quality, natural color, fine art print for your home or office.
