"Twelve significant photographs in any one year is a good crop." - Ansel Adams
I really believe the above quote by Ansel Adams to be true. So you are not going to see thousand of photographs on this website. I only show and sell what I am proud of and what has meaning to me and hopefully to you the viewer.
For me, as the photographer, each of the photographs I share has a story behind it. From time to time on this website I will share those stories with you. Hopefully for you, the viewer, if you take time to study my photographs, it will illicit an emotion inside you. Hmmm, hopefully that emotion will be a good thing.
I like most people use social media to stay in contact with the public. So also on this website you will find various links to my Instagram page, my blog and so on. If you want to learn more about me as a photographer, see more photographs captured by yours truly and to learn more about the photographs displayed on this website please take the time to click on the links. I will appreciate it if you do so and of course social media is a great way for us to interact.
This website is not about what is my favorite camera, or my opinion on what is the best gear on the market. The only product on this website are photographs. I will let the photographs speak for themselves.
My contact page is there not just as a prop. I truly would enjoy hearing from you. Your correspondence to me is always confidential and will not be shared with the public.
I will end this by once again quoting Ansel Adams; “You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.” Ansel's words describe perfectly what my photography is about and what this website is showing you.
While it is I who have captured these photos, it is all the stimuli and people I have known from my lifetime that has created the images. Thank you everyone for making life special and thank you all for dropping by and visiting my website. I hope you enjoy.
Photographer for life, Craig L. Getchius
