About Shadow River

 

069

I have been taking photographs since high school. I have always thought of photography as a way to preserve moments in time to give everyone a chance to share in the wonder and beauty of the world around them. I photography what I see around me that reflects what’s important to me..family, friends, where I live, natural beauty,lost history,wildlife and just about anything else. I was born in Florida and currently reside in Montana and consider myself blessed to have lived in two states with amazing history and natural beauty.

I hope you enjoy the pictures and they inspire you to capture your own memories and share the world as you see it. If your starting out as a photography the best advice I can give is shoot everything all the time. Practice makes perfect.

If you would like to order Photo Art or other products featuring my photos please visit my webstore at zazzle.com/shadowriverphoto and help support and preserve the history and culture of the American West.

Enjoy and I look forward to hearing from you.

  1. Florida TO Montana?! It’s usually the other way around. I’ve been in Fl for 43 years (but I originally came from Long Island, NY) Thanks for stopping in to my site.

  2. I’m glad you like “In search of unusual destinations”. Your like brought me to your blog and I must confess: you have lots of fascinating shots of things that I like as much as you! All the Montana photos remind me of the brilliant time I had in the state two years ago. I’ll be back! To your blog, I mean. Being a Brit, it will be longer before I can return to Montana (sadly). Phil.

  3. Thanks for visiting my blog. You live in a beautiful part of the world and you’re capturing it through your photography, wonderfully. Keep on blogging! ecomummy

      • Thanks a lot! Not nearly at your level but getting there
        –hopefully πŸ™‚

        PS Continue with the warehouses and old, maybe abandoned?, buildings. A very authentic view.

      • Thats funny because I was thinking: “wow she has some great photos wish I was at that level” πŸ™‚ yes I love taking pictures of the old buildings and look for them whenever I am out and about. can’t wait until spring and I get more travelling done!

      • I guess the best thing is to be inspired by others πŸ™‚

        I like the way you portray the US (at least Montana); not the usual way that I would expect to see. Well, I don”t know Montana, but your photos somehow make it look realistic and attractive without the usual stereotypes. Does this make any sense…?

        PS Where will you be traveling to? And where did you live in Florida? I just know Miami and Key West, and loved it!

      • Thank you. I try to keep my photos as true to the scene I was photographing as possible. I don’t do very much editing. I have nothing against photoshopping it makes for great pictures. I just think there is enough of the tourist guidebook type photos out there for people to look at. If people visit the places I go to they pretty much look like my photos and their not looking at this perfect beautiful photoshop print wondering if they are in the right place and disappointed because it isnt like reality. And I think its easy to visit a place see the popular spots and leave without ever really getting a sense of what life is like there.

        Once spring is here I will be travelling all over Montana to take pictures especially to parts of the state I have never visited and probably to Yellowstone National Park and through my advocacy work at http://www.frontiervoices.wordpress.com I will be travelling to Seattle and Spokane soon.

        I grew up in the Tampa area of Florida and lived a little north of Miami in Port St Lucie as well as other places in the state too. I have never been to Key West but want to visit it some time.

      • Thanks for taking time to write. I could not agree more with you!! I like places that are not perfect, and I like to respect the reality.

        Looking forward to seeing more of your photos. Great travels!

        PS Important work you do through the advocacy group.

      • Glad to write the nice thing about the blog is enabling me to talk with people with whom my path never would have crossed. Thank you for seeing the advocacy work as important. I think care for those who are poor and needy is God ordained. Take care and can’t wait to see more of your pics as well.

      • Indeed. I have also enjoyed talking to new people all over the world. Quite the world this WordPress!

        Have a lovely weekend πŸ™‚
