Thanks for stopping by! This website is a sampling of my images. I have had photography as a hobby on & off all my life. I am self taught & just truly enjoy the time spent doing it. My main camera is a Nikon D610 with 3 lenses....but I also have point & shoot cameras for hiking, etc. My motto is, "Shoot The Shot The Others Did Not!"
In 2009 some of my images started getting attention and excellent reviews on many fronts; including excellent ratings from an international judging panel. I have been honored to have great public exhibits of my work - including as guest artist at the famous DeGrazia Gallery In The Sun in Tucson - as well as use in websites, published in the news media and in magazines - including magazine cover shots. Although I do use PhotoShop, I use it very minimally - I just enhance to bring the photo out to its best natural viewing. I want people to see the view basically as I saw it. That being said, I have decided to get a little creative on occasion so there is a link called "My Creative Side" - all these creations are from an original image of mine.
Any of my images are for sale at very reasonable prices. All images up to 13 x 19 inches are personally printed by me. I have sold many giclee' (canvas wrap) prints up to 36 x 48 inches - printed by excellent professional firm. And, of course - cards, cups, etc can be made. I can be contacted at LaurenH517@gmail.com or 520-399-9331 if you wish to make a purchase, have any questions, or have comments on my work.
I have two great Utube videos -- Grand Canyon at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FY3j9G1g4sw (8 min) & Hummingbirds at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6BnhJWQGUdA&hd=1 (4 min).
