James Dewalt – May 2017 Featured Artist

Growing up in a family with a Grandfather who was a very avid amateur photographer, and a Father as the delegated family picture taker, getting into photography was about the last thing I thought I would ever have an interest in as a profession. Landing in the beautiful state of Colorado after traveling the country, and the development of the point and shoot camera provided me with an interest to begin taking photo’s of my experiences, whether out on a trek into the wilderness, or attending a concert or event. Eventually, the inborn instincts handed down from my father and his father took over, and the desire to create a better image drove me to my first DSLR purchase in 2007. Still very intimidated by it all, it took a few years before I was able to muster the courage to step into the world of shooting manually, and learning how to create the image I envisioned. While the learning never ends, I hope to provide a glimpse into the adventures I find myself on, whether it be the astounding beauty found in nature, or a dramatic moment of light and sound during a concert. Ultimately, my desire is no different from the days of the point and shoot, I shoot for those who cannot be there with me.
