James Richardson Photography
I have been shooting pictures since high school when I purchased a used twin-lens reflex camera from a teacher. Since that time I have maintained an interest in photographing places and things. Several years ago I began writing travel articles for various magazines and newspapers. That provided the opportunity to visit many scenic and unusual places. It has made me realize how beautiful this country is.
Afterward, I became seriously involved in producing artwork from my travels. So naturally, the next step was to associate myself with certain art galleries and juried shows to share my work. I am fortunate to have been invited to many shows around the Southeast.
My techniques are simple. Nothing fancy. That would probably detract from the work’s intended purpose. I have used several formats – 35mm, 6 x 7, and now digital. From the resulting images, I select my favorites. Then I print the chosen photographs on acid-free paper, mat and mount each piece using archival materials. Finally, I frame some leaving a selection unframed so the potential buyer can customize the piece to their environs.
For me, the joy is in seeing a work from idea, to viewfinder, to finished work of art. That is worth the effort. And it makes me proud. My Facebook page is www.facebook.com/jdrichardsonphotography My website is www.jdrichardson.com
