Anyone who appreciates monumental landscape photography will not want to miss seeing this show!. The team included this quote about their theme for their exhibit, A Moment in Time, “a photographic image not only provides an impression of what exists, but it also illustrates a personal interpretation of place and captures that unique moment in time that will never come again.”
As long-time outdoor enthusiasts, they continue to explore the wonders of nature and push themselves to improve their photographic skills both with the camera and with the digital potentials of the computer. Their work has been recognized with awards regionally for the unique ways in which they capture the spirit of the wild. Recently in 2010, Richard was awarded Best of Show by the Photographic Society of America Electronic Imagining Division.
Fans may have seen their striking images previously in local exhibits of their work at Family of Christ Presbyterian Church, at the Farr Library, in the Mari Michener Gallery, at the James A. Michener Library and in Tointon Gallery at the UCCC in 2009/2010, as well as at the Greeley Medical Clinic at Centerra. Their work has been displayed in other area cities as well .
The experienced talents of these two local artists are truly a gift to our community. Richard has written monthly articles for the Greeley Tribune on digital photography. Both Rich and Marcy teach a “Digital Photography 101” course for Aims Community College Continuing Education to assist beginning photographers on how to get the most out of their digital cameras. Both are active in the Loveland Photographic Society as judges for club photo competitions and as photography field trip leaders/mentors.
