Frank Weston Images

"Nature photography is how I share my solitude. I invite anyone who is overcome by the noise of everyday life, overcrowded by the density of our urban environment, or overworked by the daily demands of others to share in that unique moment--the quiet, solitary, peaceful moment--when I connect with nature."

Relying on emotion as much as technique, Frank Weston responds to the subtle signals he receives from his natural surroundings. A curled leaf beckons, a tree's shape entices, and the glint of ice calls out for Weston's attention. The signal may be as soft as a baby's sigh or as striking as lightning at night. Once seen, Weston may spend hours, weeks, even months in an effort to translate that feeling into a photograph and transform the moment into a timeless work of art.

Decrying the trend toward fully automated equipment that encourages ever-decreasing participation from the photographer, Weston believes the forty pounds of camera equipment he packs into the wilderness contributes to the uniqueness of his vision and the spirit of his art. "The plethora of technically correct, unfeeling images that flood the world today," Weston maintains, "stands as evidence of the loss of artistry in photography. Ansel Adams once observed that "the sheer ease with which we can produce a superficial image often leads to creative disaster.' So I strive to put artistry into each of my images in the hope that it will inspire others to connect with nature."
