“When I capture an image, it is my hope that it evokes an emotional experience for the viewer,” explains Dennis. “Perhaps it is how the subject is bathed in light, perhaps it is the lines of the subject that draws you in, or simply it is an image that you enjoy viewing.  With a global community very much focused on environmental impact and fragile ecosystems, my artwork captures natural images and color with a perspective people easily miss.”

Dennis suggests, “Exploration begins in the heart of the photographer—bringing a composition for a particular locale or subject to life. My interest is in the natural details: how the environment on a particular day, in a particular light, and at a particular moment in time correlates to my personal vision and interpretation of nature. My goal is to help other people celebrate their love and passion of nature and the natural world through my artwork.”
