Stephen Edwards, Oakland Member Since September 2015 Artist Statement I have had the privilege of being a professional photographer for over 20 years. The type of photography I specialize in is portraiture - kids, couples, families, weddings, fashion, glamour, headshots, publicity stills, and corporate events. For me photography is a creative process, with the idea being to sculpture with light the subject image into a work of fine art. These are photographs that will not only capture moments of cherished beauty, but photographs you will be proud to display on your wall.
In regards to my landscape photography, there are two types of images portrayed, landscapes of nature and images of architectural structures. The buildings and structures encapsulate images in areas of the world where the majestic beauty of architectural innovations thrives exquisitely with our past as well as our present day existence. Such places have become cultural landmarks chronicling so much of our historical impressions as to defy the withering away of time. Likewise the beauty of nature is epitomized through images unencumbered by commercial interventions. Photographing landscape images have always been a spiritual, holistic experience for me in balance with what I believe to be universal harmony.
Thus, my photographs are an attempt to visually personify the regal sovereignty of such phenomena.
