Is most of your photography from Wisconsin?
Yes, and no!
I’ll respond: “This wall is Rocky Mountain National Park, the other two are of Wisconsin. Within the print bins you’ll see Wisconsin, Colorado, Utah, Alabama, Florida, South Dakota, etc.”
By their question, they may not have traveled to Colorado. That’s OK. I’ll take them there with my prints.
And the follow-up question
Almost without fail, their follow-up comment will be: “You must travel alot.”
I’ll briefly explain that I am primarily a Wisconsin landscape photographer, offering fine art landscape photographic prints. Ancillary locations supplement my Wisconsin landscape photography.
Where do you travel?
As a dedicated landscape photographer, I am captivated by the land and what it offers, both in terms of large expanses and macro views.
With a somewhat limited travel budget, my travels are often to locations easily reached in a day.
Pike Lake Unit, Kettle Moraine State Forest (formerly Pike Lake State Park), is literally my backyard, offering the lake, fields, wildflowers, and hardwood forests. Because of its proximate location to my home, most forest scenes, macro flowers and leaves originate at Pike Lake.
Northern Wisconsin trips, which include Vilas and Oneida counties, are full day events. I can be in downtown Minocqua in four hours. The photography starts just north of there. It is not uncommon to leave the northwoods late afternoon, getting back – even in the summer – after the sun has disappeared for the day.
Ancillary areas of Wisconsin I’ll travel to include Hartman Creek State Park (Waupaca), Dave’s Falls County Park (Amberg), Point Beach State Park (Two Rivers), and Peninsula State Park (Fish Creek, Door County).
Beyond the day trips?
Beyond day trips, the travel time becomes longer, and often constitute our family vacation. Trips are planned around specific photographic locations. Ancillary locations round out these trips.
I’ve taken short trips to the Badlands National Park and the Black Hills (South Dakota).
Annually in summer, you will find me in Rocky Mountain National Park (Colorado). In spring, the gulf coast area of either Florida or Alabama will be my photographic destination. Extended trips may include additional locations, such as Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park (Utah).
Although I’ve driven the Alaska Highway (ALCAN) a number of years ago, (where and when I had my conversation with Denali), I did not, at that time, have my current photography equipment. The images from that trip are reminders of what awaits should I drive the ALCAN again.
Fine art landscape photography
Whether taking images locally at Pike Lake, or distant trips such as Colorado, the goal with all of my photography is to provide a fine art landscape print that you will enjoy owning, displaying, and sharing with your family and friends.
My artisitic vision is applied to all images during processing and development, and continues through to your final print. Printed personally and signed by me, your print comes with complete customer satisfaction.
