Bio

Portrait of BetterPhoto Member - Tad BowmanI have a deep passion for exploration and adventure. I aim to see and absorb new portions of the state each year. Most of the time I do it by foot. I enjoy being in the back country and enjoy the solitude. Often times, I make these treks alone and won’t see anyone for days. I find that life slows down and I’m able to connect with my surroundings which allows me to see things differently and enjoy God’s creation. The theme of my work centers on special light that helps transform ordinary scenes into something magical. Additionally, I focus on bold scenics and intimate landscapes utilizing patterns, lines, and layers accentuated by vivid colors. The photographs have been captured with a combination of a high end Canon digital, Fuji digital medium format, and Pentax digital medium format bodies. I use the highest quality zoom lenses to capture the scenes. The zoom lens allows a lot of flexibility to modify compositions quickly. Additionally, I have a large assortment of Hoya Pro Polarizers, Gitzo, Manfrotto, and Velbon carbon fiber tripods with both a Benro pan and tilt head and an Acratech ball head. I haul my gear around using a LowePro Nature Trekker aw II backpack and when I want to go light (for day hikes) I use my Mountainsmith Borealis AT backpack. Lastly, I personally process all my images using Adobe Photoshop. It’s very important to me as an artist to have full control over the processing. I want the capability to fine tune and tweak the image so that it expresses my emotions and exhibits an artistic quality I aim to achieve. The goal of my photography is to capture the beauty of nature around us. There is so much to see and I’m thankful for state and federal protection of so many wilderness areas. In these locations, I strive to capture those moments in such a way that it reminds me how it felt to be there. My hope is that my photographs will take you to each location, evoke an emotional response, and offer you an opportunity to experience the beauty of each scene and appreciate the land we live in and around.
