We asked some photographers to share a favorite image, and what inspires their work. Enjoy, and visit each artist’s website by clicking on their name.
Animals make me happy. Through photography I am able to share my joy of life on a small Missouri farm. If you are smiling, then I have accomplished my goal.
All my pieces have a story and I use photo-painting techniques to develop that story and create a mood with my image developing an energy with colour and texture.
SUNSET is one of my favorite works because of its strength, power and colors. It has also been well received and given Best In Show in one competition.
My passion for photography is limitless. I enjoy the entire creative process, with the fulfillment of capturing an inspiring moment and expressing it onto my finished work.
I’m awestruck when small gems in nature expand into their own universe. My photographs honor that smaller part of the whole, and that part becomes an abstract world unto itself.
My photography is my voice. This is me; this what I have to say. My hope is that others will hear what I’m saying and find joy in the experience.
Juxtaposition is a common theme in much of my environmental work, portraying industrial and urban blight in a beautiful context is important in getting people to look these unique subjects.
I am intrigued by finding beauty in landscape and nature. An integral part of my process is to capture the relationship between the composition and perspective of each photograph.
My photographs (old, new, digital, film) are altered by hand-painting, scratching, bending, re-photographing and layering with paint strokes and digital images and textures I collect as I travel.
My inspiration for my photography comes from the beauty of nature, sights and sounds that surround me in the forest. My hope is to capture the depth and personality of the subject.
