Crescent City Photographer Gale Steelman has joined the artists listed on the Crescent City Artists Page of wildriverscoastart.com
I am a nature and wildlife photographer who has been exploring the western United States with her camera, in pursuit of beauty, for 12 years. My favorite theme is wildlife. What I enjoy doing the most is capturing the beauty and intelligence of each animal as up close and personal as possible. I feel that their intelligence shines through their behavior, their interaction with each other and, of course, through their eyes. In fact, I never print a photo that doesn't show crisp, clear, sparkling eyes somewhere in the picture.
Though this is the digital age, I like to do photography the old fashioned way....and that is to carry out the process myself from start to finish. I shoot, image, print and frame each photo taking care that all of the steps of the creative process are done to the best of my ability. To me photography is about the emotional impact of the subject brought forth with a high degree of technical skill which brings the photos to life.
