“A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed.”
― Ansel Adams
This beautiful world we live in is such an amazing gift. My photography career began many years ago, when I discovered the magic of capturing beautiful light with my Canon camera and finding creative and wonderful ways to show the world what my heart sees - and feels - through my camera lens. After a 30-year career with Verizon Communications, I have now retired from my former job and I am now living my dream and have embraced a full-time career in photography. To be able to capture beautiful scenes and freeze a moment in time, and share the gift of nature, light and beauty with art collectors and people who appreciate the wonders of this world we live in, is truly a dream come true.
My photography work is a mirror reflection of the love that exists in me. When you look at my work, you are looking directly into my heart. My aim is not to just give you a pretty picture, but a feeling. A feeling of love, peace, joy, inspiration and a sense of awe...which reciprocate the feelings I have when I stand in front of a beautiful scene.
My award winning photography work and has been featured in publications such as Photoshop User Magazine, where it was recognized as a Member Spotlight. You can also find some of my art work proudly displayed in restaurants, model homes, and established businesses around the USA and the world. My photography work has also been featured on Baltimore and Washington DC local media television news channels.
None of this would be possible, if it were not for my beautiful life partner and business partner, Tracy. Tracy is the Creative Director for John Dukes Photography LLC. Tracy graduated from Valparaiso University in Valparaiso, IN with a BS in interior design and art. Tracy has been exposed to photography all her life and her creativity is second to none. Starting at a very young age, Tracy spent many hours alongside her dad, who is also a professional photographer, photographic educator and photographic artist. Tracy has spent time in her father's darkroom with him, learning about photo processing and developing, along with professional photography lighting. Tracy loves people, and she is passionate about being a mom. She also loves traveling and nature and she has a love for animals, both pets (especially cats) and wildlife. Her creativity and loving touch is evident in so much of my photography work and for this, I am grateful beyond measure.
