Being a dedicated nature photographer I have been
inspired by the works of masters like Ansel Adams and Elliot Porter
Capturing images that create the feelings I feel when out in nature is my
ultimate goal. Mother Nature, the greatest artist of all, is not always easy to
put on film. When light, composition, and my emotion all come together, I become
fully engaged, the magic of the moment consumes me. Being in the right place at
the right time is sometimes the rule, but at other times the creative images
requires careful planning, with great patience, sometimes going back to a place
time and time again.
I produce a yearly calendar featuring some of my
favorite images. My images are published on book and magazine covers and were
used in the set design of a major motion picture.
I hope that those who view my images will have the feeling of being there and
experience thoughts and emotions as if they were really there. Being able to
walk into an image and feel like you are part of it is a great experience. We
are at a point in time when we need the natural world to remind us of who we
really are. Our planet is a very beautiful place; photographic images can
enhance our awareness of that beauty.
My images are printed on archival Ilfochrome (formerly cibachrome) paper,
which produces the true color and sharpness of the original image. No computer
imaging, artificial lighting, or unnatural filtration were used in creating
these images. These are prints that will last a lifetime, and create a feel of
beauty and peace wherever you choose to display them.
In the spirit of our natural world,
Bill La Brie
