Driftwood Sunset

For me, the camera is just one tool that I use in approaching landscape photography.  I enjoy taking images that go beyond what can be seen with the naked eye, so I use different techniques or tools to create photos that reveal the “unseen” around us. Many of my images are long exposures, ranging from 1 second to 8 minutes or even longer; these photos record the accumulation of time in a single image.

 

The Finale

I also enjoy creating abstract images with intentional camera movement, using a longer shutter speed and physically moving the camera during the exposure. Finally, I have recently begun to experiment with infrared photography, which records the infrared light spectrum as opposed to visible light. The resulting images are dreamy and otherworldly, unveiling a secret world that is always there but the eye cannot see.

 

Snow Birches

Although I am from Bristol, Rhode Island, for the past year I have lived in Ogunquit, Maine, as well as the Caribbean island of Nevis. I love the challenge of traveling and discovering new places to shoot. Nothing beats the feeling of seeing a beautiful place for the first time, and I find I create my best work when I am exploring a place that is new to me.

 

Study in Blue

Other than travel, I am inspired first and foremost by the ocean, and secondly by the weather. I am obsessed with storms and clouds and will drop everything to go out and shoot if I see some interesting clouds outside.  To me, there is nothing more boring than a perfectly sunny day!

 

Wonderland Garden

My work has been featured in a number of juried exhibitions at galleries in Maine and Rhode Island. Recently I was accepted to exhibit my work on UGallery.com, a juried online gallery of fine artists from around the country, and I also just had one of my images published as the cover photo of the 2013 Rhode Island State Travel Guide.

 

Evening Rush

In the past I have had work published in Rhode Island Monthly Magazine, Photography Week Magazine, and Landscape Photography Magazine. I have had images reproduced in calendars and on postcards, and Getty Images and Crestock carry a selection of my photos for commercial licensing. Additionally, the Nubble Lighthouse gift store in Cape Neddick, Maine currently sells a selection of my matted prints.

 

Gold in the Hills

My focus for this year has been to participate in more juried exhibitions and find permanent gallery representation.  I am also open to commission and assignment work.

    Katherine,

    Good Stuff!

    Not just saying that because I am a north American 17th generation Gendreau. You do nice work.
