Terry North, Omaha Member Since October 2011 Artist Statement My passion is capturing the magnificence of nature and the ambience of a particular place or setting in my photographs. I've traveled to several countries, and I am always in search of images that best capture the beauty of my surroundings and my own sense of adventure. I particularly enjoy the thrill of wildlife photography, but have, of late, even branched out to weddings.
Here's my story: A friend's contract with a wedding photographer fell through at the last moment and he asked me to step in. "But...but I consider myself a wildlife photographer..." I replied, gently trying to dissuade him. "Weddings are a specialty area...the lighting alone would be challenging...achieving the proper white balance in a softly lit church at night... I mean, you've got candlelight, and other light sources..."
"Your photographs are stunning! Please! You can rent the equipment you need!"
Well, there was no way I could say "no" in that situation!
My friend was quite pleased with my work, and I hope you will enjoy my work as well. I feel blessed to share it with you.
