Ron Bowman Bio:
I got started in photography back in 1969, when I began working in a camera department located in Rich's Dept. Store in Nashua, NH. My manager was very helpful in mentoring me on the technical aspects and use of 35mm cameras, lenses, film etc. While working in the camera department I was approached by several employees to photograph their Weddings, which led me to start a part-time Wedding business, where I photographed over 300 Weddings through the early 80's. I used my earnings from shooting Weddings to purchase and experiment with a number of cameras: 35mm, medium format (6x4.5cm, 6x6cm, 6x7cm) and even a 4x5 view camera.
While I enjoyed earning money doing Weddings, my real passion was in photographing nature and New England landscapes. My early work, shot during the 1970's through 2007, was pre-digital, entirely natural and none of these images were enhanced through software. Like many old school photographers, I found it difficult to transition from film to digital photography. However, in 2008 I finally gave in and adopted digital photography. I soon learned to appreciate the tremendous benefits of digital photography, compared with using film.
All of my images are now created using a Nikon digital camera (shot in camera RAW), then post-processed using Photoshop and Topaz software. Most of my photos are taken just before, or at sunrise, when the light is lower on the horizon, which gives a warmer, golden tone to the photographs. When photographing nature, my goal is to capture the beauty of our natural landscapes and present an image that is artistic, unique and one that creates a feeling of emotion for you, the viewer.
So if you are moved by one of my photographs, please take a few minutes to view the various options available, including framing. In addition to considering these images for your home or office, they also make great gifts for family and friends (Anniversary, Birthday, Holiday, or any special occasion).
Thank you for visiting my website. I hope you enjoy my photography. If you have any questions, or comments, please feel free to send me an e-mail. You can also view my work at the Lakes Region Art Association Gallery, located in the Tanger Outlet Mall in Tilton, NH.
Signing Photographs: Prints ordered from my website are shipped directly to you by our professional lab, so I'm not able to sign the photograph. However, if you e-mail me a description of the print you ordered, I will send you a "signed certificate of authenticity". This certificate will list the photo title, location, date taken and will include my signature. You can then affix the certificate to the back of the photo/mat/frame.
