Description A highly productive momma bear and her 3 cubs in Denali Park come down out of the mountains to forage on the new greens immediately after winter's end. This momma bear has had multiple cubs every few years. She is a fierce competitor and protector in a park with all brown bear (grizzly) in this area and her healthy cubs attest to this fact.
Sue Rakes, Raleigh Member Since February 2008 Artist Statement I am beginning to forage into my Fine Art archives and process brand new Fine Art Landscapes for purchase! Bear with me as I develop this catalog of images.
Sue’s work has been published and has been on exhibit Nationally and Internationally.
Her awards include, among many, Best of Show, Fuji Masterpiece Award, and the Best Wedding Album of the Year Award.
Sue has been fine-tuning her craft for the last 14 years training at one of the best photography schools in the country.
She was recently awarded a Master of Photography from the Professional Photographers of America, a distinguished award granted to an elite 3% of Professional Photographers worldwide.
Her artistry “captures the essence of the scene or moment, and her photos captivate the viewer”.
“Great work seems so natural and “right” that the role of the artist is not conspicuous, as if they just channeled into existence something that belonged all along. Sue’s photographs welcome the viewer into that moment in that place without calling attention to the genius of her craft. The beauty speaks, for itself, through Sue’s medium.” T.S. Clark, Ph.D
