About Him Christopher Burkett was honored to receive the 2004 Hasselblad Masters award. He was born in 1951 expressing the grace, light and beauty he saw present in the world of nature. Today he works almost only with color He learned the offset printing process and ran four-color printing presses and laser scanners to create detailed color separations
About him continued He travels all over the US to photograph featured in many public and private fine art collections
Styles His style involves mostly color and landscape. He says that the untouched world is indescribable beauty. The miracle of life unfolds before our eyes, and is seen in the tapestry of creation Photography is an expression of the world we live in, and of what we see and experience The purpose of my photography is to provide a brief, if somewhat veiled, glimpse into that clear and brilliant world of light and power. To the extent that these photographs help show that way, is the extent to which these images succeed.
Amber Forest Light, New Jersey This Photo has natural lighting To me the main subject is the reflection of the trees and leaves The composition makes me look and wonder what it was like to be there in person to feel the air and see the movement. The photographer is trying to show the true beauty of the world to those you dont realize it or havent seen it.
Early Winter Snowfall, Colorado Again this is natural lighting. Angled down, like an overview. The snow is the main subject, when you look at the photo, its what grabs your attention. The lighting is bright, like an early morning sun shining on the pure white snow, the texture is like if you were to touch the photo it would look like you will be touching a fir tree! The photographer the untouched beauty of a silent winter. I chose this photo because it shows the true, brisk, mysterious beauty of nature and beautiful fir trees and hills
Cascade Sunrise, Oregon Natural lighting, Its a horizon photo, Its a dim morning light, The main subject of the photo is a beautiful sunrise on the cascade mountains, It takes up the whole photo, and focuses mainly on the sunrise. It does not follow the rule of thirds, the main light is in the middle, the is a range of different colors. The beauty of waking up in the morning. Its a very beautiful photo, I chose it because you can see the mountains in fog of clouds and light the clouds are a pretty shade of purple and they appear to be floating elegantly above the mountains.
Again this is a horizon photo And again it is natural light The main subject is a pond with water lilies in it, the beauty of untouched nature. The main light is on the sides, sort of in the middle glistening on the water. There are all sorts of colors, does not follow the rule of thirds, The photographer is trying to communicate the brisk beauty of fall or early winter. I chose this photo because I love water lilies. And the lighting is brilliant. ng Water Lilies
Delicate Dogwood, North Carolina Natural lighting It is an upward angle The main subject are the dogwood trees and the blooming of the flowers can tell because it mainly focuses on the flowering dogwoods mainly the flowers. The lighting is dim more spread across the photo except for the edges of the photo, the edges of the photo look darkened. It does not follow the rule of thirds.
