Fine Art Nature Photography that brings beauty and peace to your surroundings...

In addition to "classical photography," I explore nature from other points of view, princyipally by using Intentional Camera Movement (ICM), Infrared and Macro techniques to evoke a sense of the energy in a scene, in a tree, or flower; or perhaps its movement in the breeze; or to view its radiance up close through a veil of light. Photographing nature in unique ways, whether as an "intimate landscape" or close-up, is my focus and delight. I hope you enjoy viewing the images I've created here. For information on ordering Fine Art Prints, see the link "Ordering Info" at top.

Susanna, your portfolio " a terrific body of work. I find myself going through image after image after image and looking at them again. I'm delighted that there is such variety, such unique visions, and I'm doubly excited to know you're not done with it and you're still working on it cause it's going to be great to see it evolve."

—Brooks Jensen, LensWork Extended Issue #188
