About the Artist

Gerry Gantt has been taking Nature and Scenic Photographs since 1967. Camera equipment has been various Nikon® cameras and lenses. Since Digital SLR cameras became affordable, Gerry has used the Nikon D100 (2004), Nikon D2x (2005-2008) and currently a Nikon D3x digital camera with a 70-200 mm telephoto and 2x Tele-converter for nature work and an 18-200 mm (D2x) zoom lens and currently a 24-120 lens with the D3x for scenic work. His recent Scenic venue has been Thailand and that country's beautiful Buddhist temples (Wats). Films used in the past have been exclusively Kodak® slide films, including Kodachrome 25 and 64 and Ektachrome 100 as the Ektachrome emulsions were improved over the years.

Gerry's method for finding interesting Nature shots is to seek them out rather than waiting for them to come to him. Both methods have merit and each will produce great photographs, but prowling around works better for this photographer. He also prefers to picture animals doing something besides just sitting somewhere, if possible. Simple portraits are nice, but depicting an animal doing something characteristic of the species tells the viewer more than just what it looks like. Of course, Scenic photos, of necessity, require that the photographer go to them. Here, the most important factors in obtaining a good shot are time of day, sky conditions and time of year.

Gerry is a co-op member of the Artists' Undertaking Gallery in Historic Occoquan, Virginia, the Northern Virginia Handcrafters Guild since 2003 and a board member of the organization from 2005-2009. He is also a member of the League of Reston Artists, Reston Photographic Society, and the Herndon Council for the Arts His photographs have been displayed for sale at local Arts and Crafts Shows in the Northern Virginia and suburban Maryland areas since 2001 and at the Artists' Undertaking Gallery since 2010. All photos are shown in extensive galleries at GerryGanttPhotography.com where they may also be purchased.
