First, Happy Thanksgiving to all!
We have another great photographer to feature. Come and meet
Here is our interview with the photographer...
Briefly describe what you make?
I make fine art photographs. Mostly I focus on nature photography, but I also have some whimsical and some industrial subjects.
What mediums do you enjoy working in most?
I am adoring digital photography because I take A LOT of pictures! Digital allows me to try angles and styles that I might not have with film because of the expense.
How long have you been creating craft?
I've always been interested in photography. My grandparents gave me my first "real" camera when I was about 8.
How did you get started?
When my grandfather passed away a few years ago, my grandma gave me his circa 1970 Olympus and all the lenses and things he had acquired over 30 years. Since then I've switched to digital, but I haven't stopped shooting!
Where does the name of your shop come from?
The name of my shop comes from my desire to show things the way they actually appear. Nature photography is my main focus- hence, the "stone." Presenting nature unaltered, unPhotoshopped, unposed is where the "unturned" part comes from. I don't turn the stones I photograph!
What would you most want people to know about your work?
I show people what I saw. I rarely alter photographs beyond cropping, and perhaps changing to black and white. I really only use Photoshop to put on my watermark! I like people to know that what they are seeing is real, not the result of tweaking in a computer program. I think that's important to show people real nature before it disappears.
What words of advice do you have for other artists?
Doing something you love is so important. It's such a thrill to open my new images and find something that makes me proud. I wish that feeling on everyone.
You know the expression that a picture is worth a thousand words - check out this shop!
