Profotos Evaluation - Gary Crabbe
The work in Gary Crabbe's nature and landsacape photography portfolio can be described as beautiful, stunning, and simply amazing - a true master of light and color in the medium of photography. Gary's images are among the best our staff has ever reviewed in the nature/landscape photography field.
Gary's work in photography began while he was a student at Humboldt State University, majoring in psychology and theater. After graduating from HSU, Gary landed a job as manager of the Stock Department of Mountain Light Photography - the studio of world famous nature photographer, Galen Rowell. It was during Gary's nine years (1990-1999) as Rowell's Stock manager, working with some of the world's best known advertising agencies, magazines, and publishers, that he gained the experience and education needed to succeed professionally in this very difficult field.
Given Gary's relatively long tenure as Rowell's Stock Department manager, it is no small wonder why our staff immediately linked the style of Gary's own images to that of Rowell's. Our first impression of Gary's work while visiting his website was, "Wow! These images are very similar to Galen Rowell's!" It was during this first visit to Gary's website, when one of our staff members consulted his biography page and learned of the close connection between Gary and Galen. The similarity in styles between Gary and Galen is truly incredible - both have perfected the landscape photography image through their masterful use of light, color and composition. To have two photographers of this caliber under one roof at Mountain Light must have been an amazing time!
While reviewing this type of portfolio, it is sometimes difficult to express the incredible power of the images in words alone. If one word is to be used in describing Gary's portfolio, it is "amazing" - this word completes any summarization of Gary's work, which we could attempt to construct with words.
Our staff invites you to browse Gary's porfolio on Profotos and experience the true beauty of nature, which he so masterfully depicts through the viewfinders and ground-glass of his cameras. The combination of light and color in Gary's portfolio will "pop" off your monitor!
After you browse Gary's Profotos portfolio, be sure to visit his site at www.enlightphoto.com to see more of his work, learn more about Gary as a photographer, and to order prints of his images. This is one photographer's site where much more than just a cursory glance is needed to understand and appreciate the full scope and mastery of his work.
