Art has been part of my life since day one. My mother painted with oils and a palette knife as well as sculpted throughout her life. My sister paints, teaches painting and other crafts. My cousin is an accomplished photographer and has taught the craft. For the past too many years I have put the artsy side of my life aside and worked in the computer industry writing software. However, I found that I always focused (a pun!) on photography, composition and balance in my free time.
Meet "Stu V2"!
While my previous photography work used 35mm and point/shoots I have taken the plunge and moved into the DSLR world of serious photography. My DSLR and I have traveled to Mount Rainer and Kauai. Trained with several professional photographers in Washington and Kauai. The beautiful Washington coast and I have many plans for the future. Copalis Beach, Wa? Check! Second Beach? In the works... Bryce? Chaco Canyon? Africa? You bet!
As a side note - The world is a beautiful place and I want my photos to reflect that beauty honestly and without artificial coloration or manipulation.
Enjoy my photos - they are at the core of who I am and have always been.
P.S. My photos hang in several of the Wineries in Woodinville Washington. Please enjoy the wines and my photos when you are in town.
P.P.S. Contest Winner!
