2013 August Featured Artist of the Month

Don Gregory



Don has been an active member of the WAA for over 30 years. His passion for the creative expression comes out in all he does. The Association has counted on his energy, time and talents on many occasions and he has graciously given of himself when called upon.

My first camera was a Kodak Baby Brownie somewhere around the age of nine.

My Dad and I used to develop film in the kitchen sink and then print them on a homemade contact printer.


In junior high, I bought my first 35mm camera: an Argus C-4 with interchangeable lenses. I did mostly black and white in those days and a lot of sports photography.


I always thought I would be a painter and looked at my photography as a way to record my "history" - a recording medium rather than an art form. But somewhere along the line I became frustrated by my inability to paint the way I wanted to and turned to photography as an artistic medium. My love of painting and the way that painters use light has had a major impact on my photography. That, along with my conversion to digital photography and photo editing software and the creative range that it provides, are probably the major influences in what you see today.


I have read many photographers statements about their philosophy or their interpretations of their "approach". I have always believed, however, that the pictures say it all. It's a visual medium. Either you like them or you don't. All the explanations and rationalizations won't change that simple fact.


So, rather than read about my theories of light and color, please look at my pictures. I hope you like them and that they "speak" to you better than anything I could write.


My landscapes and outdoor photographs are meant to celebrate the beauty and wonder of nature, to foster appreciation of the natural world, both big and small and usually reflect my love of water and warm weather.

And thank you for looking at my pictures.
