Fine art photography is photography intentionally created in the vision of artist as photographer. It’s wonderfully subjective. I see something and I want to capture what I see straight from the heart. So let the photograph speak for itself. It’s about creating something that maybe can’t actually be seen in real life. There can most certainly be wedding photos or pet photos that we can call fine art photography. But a photographer cannot mix fine art into their everyday style without crafting their own voice, their own vision, on their own.

I realize this is some heady stuff I’m talking about here.

Without further hand-waving, here’s a selection of posts about the subjective side of photography. But hey, if you’ve got a vision for a piece of photographic art and a spot to hang it in, we’d love to help you out. Get in touch right away and let’s talk about your project.

A studio portrait is a portrait which will focus less on surroundings and more on the individual by using sterile backdrops and props so…

    Art in your inbox – January Edition

    Earlier in January, I flew to Atlanta, Georgia for the annual Imaging USA professional photographers’ conference. I spent the majority of my time meeting new people and learning from the best.

    Water Photographs

    I’ve been wanting to try photographing dripping water, and I finally did it. It’s just one of those things that I’ve seen here and there that I’ve always thought would be fun to try, like photographing a bullet shooting through an apple or a watermelon. Photographing water dripping is a lot safer, and easier. There…

    Creativity And Original Ideas

    There are no original ideas. Really. None. I was walking through my kids’ school, and looking at the student artwork on the wall. There was a piece that caught my eye. It was different from the crowd and really pretty. The student had done a beautiful painting of white flowers with a blue and red…
