Craig Perry is a photographer native to the picturesque New England area, currently residing in Norwalk, CT. In addition to many other world travels at leisure, a professional European assignment afforded him the opportunity to develop further appreciation of line and form. His passion for photography has continued to grow as he experiences all the beauty that planet earth offers.
With an interest launched by a Kodak Instamatic camera, Craig moved on to taking Polaroids, and the electronic metering of his Minolta SR-102 camera just continued to fire the passion. As a teenager, he had a dark room to process his own film and eventually printed his own slides using Cibachrome. Craig embraces the digital world and all it offers the art form.
As an artist, Craig's photographic style reflects the moment that is a symphony of nature and skill; harnessing light, color, form and texture. Favorite subjects include wildlife, nature and architecture but he is sought after for his ability to capture "the moment" at weddings, family reunions and fashion shows. His work is included in local model portfolio development.
While Craig is not a classically trained photographer, he has been inspired through working side-by-side with various National Geographic and Canon Explorer of Light Photographers. He has further honed his skills by completing college-level classes on lighting, composition, and other photographic techniques. His work has been a source of inspiration for use in other mediums, including ceramic tile and oil on canvas. He is a member of several photography associations, with works displayed in many local galleries. He has garnered several awards for his recent works, including first place in peer review competition.
