    Fine Art Photography

    Hello everyone. I hope I didn't misunderstand the purpose of this sub-forum. I am a photographer and video writer/producer. I sell professional services, mostly to business communicators, but also some outdoor industry. I am a field producer for Bass Pro Shops and for Bowhunter Magazine TV. In addition to the services that pay the bills, I have a deep love of photographing nature and have built a website through Fine Art America to show and sell prints. I would appreciate you having a look and passing the site on through whatever social media you use. Here is a link to the site: http://1-david-drew.artistwebsites.c...?tab=galleries

    I also have another site at Photoshelter that is my still photography professional service site. This site has some of the product, editorial, and industrial images I've done. One problem I have is that much of the work I do is covered by non-disclosure agreements and some even subject to ITAR restrictions so there's not many images in the industrial gallery. Here is a link to the Photoshelter site if you'd care to look: http://davidjdrewphotog.photoshelter.com/#!/index

    Please let me know what you think and pass them on if you can. If this is beyond the scope of this sub-forum, let me know. Thanks very much.

    David,

    Beautiful work. I wish I had more time to pursue the art of photography but, lately, I rarely even carry a camera. This forum was meant for posts such as this - good luck!

        This autumn image has by far the most views on my website: http://fineartamerica.com/featured/r...avid-drew.html

        I've always thought this shot of Lesser Prairie Chickens on the Lek would appeal to bird hunter: http://fineartamerica.com/featured/l...avid-drew.html

          I've posted a new bugling bull elk image here http://fineartamerica.com/featured/b...avid-drew.html

          The background is a little busy, but working with wild animals you can't just ask them to move over a bit for a better shot. Please take a look and let me know what you think.

            Amazing photos David. The link in your post on the elk isn't working though.... had to walk through the site instead.

              I'm sorry Fireside. I've fixed the link.

              If you browsed the site, you must have seen some of the Kansas images. I'd like to hear what you think of them. Thank you.

              I have plans to do a significant body of work documenting the prairie ecosystem and some interesting and subtly beautiful parts of Kansas.

                I saw the photos of southwest Kansas, beautiful. I have been in KS for only 3 years and have not been down to that area of the state. I live in the northeast corner of the state which is different - rolling hills, timber, brush and ag. One of the things that always amazes me about this beautiful USA is how diverse the countryside is, even within each state there can be such a variety of landscapes. Your photos of the mountains in particular caught my eye.

                  Great photos, they transport you to where they were taken. Love the quakies.
                  I figured out my problem, I lived 30 years in a 10 year town.

                    I can highly recommend the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve in the Flint Hills. It wouldn't be too far of a drive for you. http://www.nps.gov/tapr/index.htm

                      I have uploaded some new images to my fine art website that you might like to view. These links are to images I just shot today in the Kansas Flint Hills.

                      Thanks for looking. If you can pass my site on to your friends, I would appreciate it.

                        David - I thoroughly enjoyed looking through your photos. And I agree that Kansas is far more diverse and beautiful than I had ever imagined. I've only scratched the surface of seeing the state and look forward to more of your photos. Enjoy your time out there.

                            Very nice. I like your use of different aspect ratios to frame each shot.

                              Thank you. The composition determines the aspect ratio. I'm not a prisoner of the standard aspect ratios. I need to go back to the Chase Lake Falls prepared to wade. I need to wade out into the stream to get a complete view of the width of the falls and also hopefully include some of the upper falls. The view I have posted is the middle falls. There are three sets of falls. The middle falls are the most dramatic. The upper falls is narrower and really roils when there is enough flow. The lower falls is pretty small in comparison. This was an evening shoot so the light and shadows are coming from the right side of the image. If I shoot in early morning light I might get some nice warm sunrise light on the falls. I hope the flow manages to keep going at near this level until the middle of next week. I have an hour drive to this spot so I'll have to leave early.
