CRAIG LOVELL'S ARTIST BIOGRAPHY
I became interested in photography at the age of 12 when I took my first darkroom class and discovered the book “The Family of Man”. Since then photography has been my passion and I continue to explore the unlimited ways the medium can be used for self-expression.
It has been encouraging for me to see the acceptance of fine art photography expand from primarily black & white landscape imagery to include a wide variety of subjects and techniques. Each image I include in my Fine Art Portfolios must pass my own personal test of good design, lighting, technical quality and that indefinable quality that makes it art.
With a love of the natural world and native cultures, my imagery is global in scope. It is my hope that my photographs will help to promote the preservation of the natural environment and indigenous cultures throughout the world by making the viewer aware of the precious nature of what they are viewing.
