Denis Wagovich, London, KY Member Since September 2007 Artist Statement Photography for me is an outlet to release the monotony of my day job, explore my creativity, and be out in nature. The things I enjoy most about photography are that I gain knowledge of my surroundings, its inhabitants, and the feeling I get when I have a shot that duplicates what my eyes saw. The Florida Everglades is one of Mother Nature’s greatest accomplishments, with it’s abundance of wildlife and extraordinary landscape. Winter in the Everglades is a wonderful time, the birds are coming back, the mosquito's are gone, and the weather is perfect.
I also spend some time in the city, mainly for Night photography. Downtown Miami with the lights and surrounding water makes for a great night-scape. I do occasionally travel outside of Florida to photograph, places such as Yosemite, Death Valley, San Francisco, United Kingdom, and The Great Smoky Mountains. Nature and wildlife are my favorite types of photography, but I will photograph just about anything. There is nothing like the peace, tranquility, and excitement of being out in nature, especially in the perfect light.
