Lifetime professional photographer Wayne Fox has over 35 years experience as a photographer and master printer. For the past several years he has focused his passion for photography on capturing and printing amazing landscape and nature images. Using specialized high resolution digital cameras, his images reveal details and colors in the final prints which can only be appreciated when viewed personally. This website can serve only as a catalog for selection of images, but can in no way convey the stunning quality of seeing the prints in person.The entire process, from the capture of each image, perfecting the file, and producing the perfect print, is done exclusively by him. Only by having this complete control does he feel he can achieve an image of timeless beauty and accurately portray to the viewer what he saw and felt when he photographed the scene presented.All of the work is done using the most modern technology available. While a few photographers (some of them quite well known) cling to the technologies of the past and attempt to explain it as being "superior", that claim doesn't hold up. Most of them do so as a marketing gimmick, and some even to cover up the fact they don't understand and have not spent the time to master new technologies. Those claiming film is still superior are misguided, and photographers need to use the best tools available to create their work. Please read the article on this site, Is Film Better than Digital? to get a idea of Wayne's views on this.Many misunderstand Photoshop as well, and discredit anything that has been "Photoshopped". The article covers his thoughts on that as well, but in summary understand that all photographs require processing. Without it they would look terrible ... a camera just doesn't see light the same way we do as humans. Even film photographers now scan their film and then go through the same steps with Photoshop and other tools. Photoshop (and other programs) can be carried to various degrees, and here Wayne is a "minimalist" ... using Photoshop and other digital tools to accomplish many of the same things done in the conventional darkroom during his twenty five years of darkroom printing. When printed, the images must be believable, but also present the scene in a way to show it how he "saw" it, and hopefully stimulate an emotional connection with the viewer so they might also feel how he
felt when standing at that place and time.
"Traditionally artist's often make a statement about their work. Mine is pretty simple ... when you view a photograph of mine, I hope it allows you to see what I saw, but more importantly feel how I felt when I created the image."
