About my work
Photo by Patrick Walter
My scenic work strives to paint a feeling or mood.
This is a consuming task as I try to capture just the right mood presented to me
That means hours and hours of waiting, searching and then capturing
just the right light and just the right image in a true image of the moment.
My job is not to be the creator of the image via Photoshop, but rather
photographically document our creation.
My hope is to capture a scene in the most artistic way possible without altering
or changing that which is set before me. No fake clouds, no fake photoshop composites
and photoshop processing limited to the normal translation of the original RAW file without
changing the physical content of the image.
What you see in my nature photography is real and authentic.
An aside about the way I photograph. I think BIG! When I photograph a scene
I am thinking of a print that goes at least 60 inches wide or tall--not a 2" space
typical on social media. So...think BIG with me when you see my work!
I do consider our earth as God's creation and I consider each image you see as
a gift. I do not produce the scene. God's nature provides the beauty. I simply
observe and photograph.
I have developed a yearly calendar and greeting card business.
You will see a greeting card link at the top of this page.
When it is calendar season, that link will change to the word "calendar."
My most honored reward is having my work connect with people.
That has been my goal in both landscape and photojournalism.
