Fantasy Photo Art

Welcome to my Fantasy Photo Artwork Gallery.

This gallery represents the first 5 years of my fantasy photograph artwork. Has my time been well spent? Is there any noticeable style to my images? Do I have any talent or should give up and quit? And perhaps most importantly, are there any images here that you like? For answers to these and other questions please take a moment to view my humble gallery.

PLEASE NOTE: If you see something you like, please take a moment to like it, add it to favorites, and/or leave a comment about it. My models, and I, visit this site frequently and appreciate your feedback. :) (You may be required to create an account, but it only takes a moment and an email address and then you're good to go. :)

Images added daily

Your Patronage, is appreciated!

Thank you for visiting my humble gallery. It is a work in progress.

Science Fiction and Fantasy is a passion of mine. I am expressing it through photography and digital art these days. (I used to do sculptures, painting and prisma color pencil drawings, but due to disabilities I had after leaving the service, I found I could no longer do things that way any more. (I have nerve damage that affects my eye-hand coordination.)

So I have learned to use a camera to sketch my models, and use a computer screen for my canvas, and a mouse for a paintbrush and/or pencil! (With the ever present undo option - just in case my hand jerks when painting important details.)

I post my images in this gallery not to make money, but to simply display and organize my work. If someone wants to buy something, they are, welcome to do so. Art is only meaningful if it is seen, and if someone out there can see and appreciate my images then my work is done.

My work to date is comprised of Pure Photographs, (Full Color, B&W and Infra Red) Digitally Enhance Images (Special effects added to Photographs to make them look abstract, surreal or impressionistic.) and Modified Photographs (Digitally added or alter backgrounds, and/or subject modifications.) It should be noted that awhile digitally added, they are usually of my own creation, I often use XP MS Paint to draw in details, create unusual backgrounds, and add in other details. So awhile digitally created, the computer isn’t doing all the drawing for me, as often as not I do it on my own.

My models, like all models, since the dawn of time, inspire me, they are my muses and bring their own energy and talents to many of my images. So unlike full CGI stuff, my work is touched by more then one soul, and is some cases even more. I think, this collaboration, adds to the variety and the quality of the images I produce, since each models has his/her own sense of style, that is, as often as not, reflected in the final image I ultimately produce.

The results of my efforts are as you see them in my gallery, please take a moment to look them over, and let me know what you like, or don’t. Many of my models and myself, visit the gallery often, and appreciate any comments, questions or suggestions you might have.
