BEHIND THE CAMERA:
Lawrence is a military retiree who lived abroad for eight years where he experienced many cultures and diverse customs. Life overseas helped create experiences and memories that provided a lifelong influence on attitude, decision making, and interaction with other people. His travels expanded his outlook on the life he learned while growing up in Oklahoma. He presently enjoys life with his beautiful bride in their home near Sapulpa, Oklahoma and they have four adult children who have left the nest and make their own lives in other states.
Lawrence has conservative and traditional tastes in art and this reflects in his photography. He enjoys preparing his work with vivid colors, sharp contrast, and crisp details. From time to time though, he'll experiment with abstract images or unusual colors to capture the eye's attention.... these images must "call out" to him. Lawrence also has an affection for B&W photography and is quite sure you'll enjoy his work in that genre.
He is a self-taught photographer who found a love for photography early in his military career. Over the next 28 years, he balanced a life of military service, raising a family, and shooting photos when he had free time. In recent years, he's found more personal time, completed the digital photography program at a nearby community college, and became reengaged with fine art photography. He continues to attend frequent workshops, seminars, reads self-improvement articles about new techniques, and continues to practice, practice, practice. After all these years, he was no longer satisfied at being a hobbyist photographer so in early 2012, he stepped up and began offering his work for sale at Fine Art America. It is a true honor to exhibit his work here because this group has so very many accomplished and talented artists!
Visual arts are quite subjective – each person will either like or dislike an image based on their own tastes. Lawrence wants to share his work and encourage you to hang it on the wall in your office or home. They are also perfect upscale gifts. If you have an eye for art, you’ll know that a carefully chosen frame and matte will enhance beautiful art work. This is similar to a person dressing well and looking “like a million” with the right clothing. Don’t you want your visitors to say “wow” when they enter your home or work place?
