Walking alone

An elephant walks alone. It walks with gradual, grand purpose. It walks against a backdrop of stunning reds and other colors associated with the final moments of sunset. Perhaps, this elephant is walking because the late hour is drawing near. In hardly any time at all, the sky will pass into twilight. Will be the elephant get to where it is going before then? Or will it have to continue its long, weary journey under a blanket of stars. This stunning acryl on canvas piece is available as wall art, on t-shirts, or as a wide range of interior décor products.

Nous avons vu

The title of this piece is French. It translates to “We’ve Seen You.” As you regard the message of the title in relation to the actual art of this piece, you will certainly also appreciate the remarkable detail and personality that is captured in this scene depicting two elephants. They have most certainly seen you, and there is no telling what might happen next. With a scene this gorgeous, the temptation is to get closer. However, sometimes, a respectful distance is a must. This piece is available for canvas prints, metal prints, acryl prints, framed prints, or on interior products like beach towels or duvet covers. (Jan Keteleer)

Hi There

“Hi There!” is the English translation of this piece. You are being greeted warmly by a family of elephants against a scenic, calming, natural backdrop. These elephants are aware that you have come closer, and they are welcoming you to what is likely their home. What are you going to do next? Is there even something you can say in a situation such as this? Bonjour La is a beautiful scene of nature, and it is available in a variety of forms. This includes canvas prints, metal prints, acryl prints, or framed prints. This piece is also available across numerous interior products. (Jan Keteleer)

Freedom to the elephants

A nude woman stands surrounded by elephants. She is carrying a source of light that is proving to be absolutely essential in such dark circumstances. To look at this painting, one could easily say that she is the one who is leading them to freedom. What we wonder about instead is who this woman is, and why is she helping these elephants. We know she is leading them away from something, but what would that threat be? Where are they going? As we wonder about their next move, we are moved by the attention to detail. Available as t-shirts, wall art, or interior home décor products. (Jan Keteleer)

Avalon Light Photoart

by Richard Winn

Avalon Light Photoart was founded in October 2009, by Richard Winn. Richard is a part time photographer, based in Somerset, in the south west of England, not far from the large city of Bristol and close to the opportunities of the Somerset Levels and uplands, such as Exmoor and the Quantock Hills. Early on, I recognised that setting up a website from scratch was very time consuming, so I decided to use Photoshelter and their tailored templates, designed with photographers in mind. This also took the risk out of running an e-commerce website, with any security being handled by people who know how to protect customers.
I am based in Bridgwater and my full contact details can be found on the Contact page on the main website (http://ps.avalonlightphotoart.co.uk). I specialise in nature photography, but this covers a wide range of subjects. Choice of wildlife subjects range from macro photographs of tiny insects, through to large mammals such as red deer and bottlenose dolphins. I also specialise in micro landscapes and natural textures and abstracts, not to mention wide open landscapes. A number of photographs are now available, from my local area of Somerset and Devon and from the Scottish Highlands, where I often feel more at home. Also, being based in Bridgwater makes me ideally placed to document the annual Bridgwater Guy Fawkes Carnival, probably the largest illuminated carnival in the world.
My main target customers are individuals looking for fine art nature photography. However, my work is also available for immediate download, either for personal (including charitable) use or as a commercial product (mostly as Rights Managed licences). Most photographs are available as prints and downloads, but there are some exceptions, which are stated in the image description. I print all my own products on Hahnemuhle fine art paper, this is currently on either Fine Art Pearl (a semi-glossy paper) or Fine Art Baryta (glossy), depending on the image. Both of these papers are heavyweight, in excess of 300gms. If anyone is interested in a matt print, then I would outsource this printing to the Print Yours, a company who tailor printing to individual images. Self-printing allows me more control over the quality of the final product and from testing Print Yours, I find that the quality is as good as what I can offer, with only slightly higher cost. Exact pricing is available during the order process, but the basic price structure is as follows:
A3 Print: £25.99 (+P&P)
A4 Print: £16.99 (+P&P)
7×5” Print: £2.49 (+P&P)
Personal Use Digital Download Licence: £12.99 (original size; lower resolution images may also be available at reduced cost)
Commercial licence: According to usage
In the Spring of 2011, I published a book titled “A Journey with Nature”, based on my experiences while exploring the natural world. This was self-published through Blurb in two different formats; one containing text only in a pocket format and one in a larger format, illustrated with photographs relating to the text. It is now also available in electronic form from Amazon’s Kindle site.
I have found that social media has offered me little benefit so far, but I do have a Facebook fan site. Recent news can be found there, on my personal Facebook page and on my blog, where I also have some photography articles. Hopefully, these outlets will offer not only portals to expand my business in the future, but also a conduit to express my vision. I feel that to progress in any art form, you have to experiment. It is only by experimentation that you explore new ideas and develop your own identity. This is no different for photographers, particularly those who aim for a more artistic style. I am always striving for something a little different, I don’t always succeed of course, but each time I experiment, it makes the chances of being different more likely and strengthens my individual style.
The featured picture came about as a result of this experimentation. I’d wanted to experiment with narrow depth of field, using selective focusing for around 12-18 months and had practiced with some larger subjects, but it was a while before I found a suitable subject in a situation where photography was possible last autumn. The subject itself was a small juvenile of the common toad (Bufo bufo), less than two inches or five centimetres long. I tried a couple of side on compositions, before moving to the front, with slightly more depth of field. I then concentrated on focusing on the two prominent eyes, throwing the background and rest of the toad out of focus. The in focus bits of moss then helped to frame the subject, with the colours from the rest of the moss giving a nice smooth, colourful background. I have set this as a limited edition print, priced at £34.99 for an unmounted A3 print on Fine Art Pearl, but it is also available mounted and as a matt print at additional cost. It can be found in the Reptiles and Amphibians gallery.

Mike Shipman: Blue Planet Photography

Comfortable in the field and in the studio

I’m a self-taught photographer with a B.S. in wildlife biology. I worked in the wildlife field for the Colorado State Parks system, Denver Museum of Natural History, US Fish & Wildlife Service, National Forest Service, and private consulting. I broke from the rigid box of science to further explore my interests in art and science because I can’t be locked into a certain path. I like to explore them all. That applies to my preferences in subject matter. My interests are broad and varied, from landscapes to automobiles, industry to environmental.

I’m comfortable in the field and in the studio and don’t have many fears or reservations about locations. I’ll photograph in the canopy of a rainforest, a mile underground in a silver mine, on the ocean or in a Fortune 500 boardroom.

Temple in a lake

There is something about this fine art piece that draws us in from the first moment we look to it. We can almost imagine a scene such as this from a dream. We know that if we were there, we would have to make our way into the clear water. We would have to swim towards that great structure, which seems to float on the water. We know this is impossible. We don’t know far we will have to swim to get there. We move forward anyway. We are compelled by whatever we are going to find in that structure. Available as framed or canvas wall art.

Chris Bidleman Photography Headshot B&W The nature of artists is to explore the world around them, see things differently, and to constantly learn more about their craft and about themselves. I am both a photographer as well as a musician and I seek out new ways to combine both the performing arts as well as visual arts. By reaching out and networking to other photographers and people who appreciate art, I hope to learn a few things and hopefully I can also share what I have learned along my artistic journey.

I look forward sharing my nature, landscape, travel and wildlife photography with others that we can connect with through Photographers Selection.
