Photographer in the Spotlight: Nature and Landscape Photographer Warren Keelan
We chose to showcase Warren Keelan’s beautiful work this week because of the exquisite detail of his landscape, wildlife and nature photographs as well as the extensive array of bold colors in the scenes. Warren’s photographs are mainly created on the Australian Coastline where he spends most days…yes I’m slightly envious, shooting in Australia is on my bucket list, but who wouldn’t be envious of the beautiful landscapes, warm crystal clear waters, and amazing wildlife :). I hope you enjoy Warren’s Statement and his stunning photographs in this week’s Photographer in the Spotlight. Don’t forget, you can nominate your favorite photographer.
Warren’s Artist Statement
“Hello. My name is Warren Keelan, I am a seascape and ocean photographer living on the South Coast of New South Wales, Australia. I spend most of my days alongside or within the ocean, interpreting what I see through the medium of digital photography.
I’ve always had a fascination with nature, especially the ocean and its ever changing forms, and I am compelled to capture and share what I feel are special and unique moments in the sea. I love the raw, unpredictable nature of water in motion and the way sunlight brings it all to life, from both above and below the surface. For me, the challenge is creating an image that hopefully tells a story or leaves an impression on the viewer.
In 2013 I opened my first photo gallery in Wollongong where I am extremely privileged to be able to showcase and sell my printed works to both local and international clients.”
Warren Keelan is a multi-international award winning seascape and ocean photographer based in the Illawarra South Coast region of NSW, Australia. His images have been awarded highly in the prestigious photographic competitions: International Photo Awards, Epson International Pano & International Loupe Awards and has received local and international recognition via TV, radio & newspapers.
Today’s Spotlight Photograph: Landscape / Wildlife Photograph – Hawksbill Sunrise
A little over a month ago PI Photography and Fine Art rolled out with a new series of blog posts called Photographer in the Spotlight. For a full week we will showcase a brief bio, artist statement and show some of the photographer’s work that we found most interesting. Our hope is that our viewers not only see the beautiful work created by the photographer but also learn a little about the artist behind the pieces. There are so many wonderful photographers in the world and a lot of the time we only see the photograph, not the artist. So we thought it would be nice to show appreciation for the artist, for their dedication to their field, and share some of their work along the way.
Think about it, if it wasn’t for the artist then there would be no art to admire and honestly, life would be pretty boring without it! So show your appreciation to them for spicing up your life and showing you their beautiful perception of the world.
If you would like to be showcased or know someone who should be, please submit the info here through our contact us page: Photographer in the Spotlight Submissions
