Featured Artist – Don Ament

by

IMAGES OF PLANET EARTH

For many years Don Ament has been known at art fairs for his fine large format color photographs handprinted in his own darkroom. He is one of those lucky people who has been able to turn a serious avocation into a profession. Coming from the demanding background of a commercial photographer he has turned his love of nature into a means of support as well as self expression.

This is not about pretty pictures. Don has a deep technical knowledge of photographic processes and can ‘talk the talk’ as well as ‘walk the walk’ with just about anyone. Don’t miss his philosophy about photography on his website, you will soon learn that this media is about much more than automatic exposures and pushing buttons on a digital camera.

His portfolio of images is varied but mostly is dominated by sweeping landscapes, exposing the planet at its most beautiful.

When you visit his site do not miss Gallery Mountaintop Removal with its strong images and poignant story. Proceeds from the sales of these photos will be donated to educate the public on the short and long-term effects of these mining operations.
