Fine Art Photography
What is Fine Art Photography? Honestly, I’ve been asking myself that question ever since I started photography, and quite frankly, I still have no idea. To be blunt, I don’t know what “Fine Art Photography” means at all. Even if you look it up, there are an endless amount of varying definitions for it. After reading all these different descriptions, I came to a definition of my own for fine art photography: “Fine Art Photography is photography that captures and encapsulates the vision of the photographer as an artist”.
As of right now, I don’t consider myself to be a full fledged artist, I consider myself as simply, a photographer who likes to make awesome images. I aim to take photos that I think look awesome and because of how they look, I think they would look good as a giant print. Therefore, to me, fine art photography is just… photos that go up on walls for display purposes because they look awesome or amazing; and if the photo is amazing, then I believe that the print medium needs to be fitting for all the awesome that the image contains.
That’s why personally I went through a ridiculous long and expensive process of finding and testing out various printing outlets to ensure that my photographs are printed on some of the highest quality materials available in North America while keeping cost in mind.
