BIO

My philosophical approach to image creation comes from a deep source of gratitude and wonderment for nature. Noticing and photographing the multitude of ways plants and trees interact with the environment both as shapes and as living creatures are what excite my visual senses. Traveling the  globe as a cruise ship musician, and with over 10 years’ experience as a full-time graphic designer, I have developed a keen sense for affecting emotional responses. I carry this talent into my image creation with a mission to arrest viewers in contemplation, wonderment and visual stimulation for the grave, constant and beautiful.

 

Crowson Photography was created in 2016 while completing a MFA in Photography at Academy of Art University. As a Florida native, Tallahassee has been my home for 26 years.
