I love to take what I call photographic driving excursions. My schedule as an artist permits that. Weekdays or weekends, it doesn’t matter, if I can squeeze time into my schedule, I grab my camera and my tripod and out the door I go!
Wisconsin’s scenic beauty is never far away, as a trip of even 10 to 12 miles in northeastern Wisconsin can reveal some of the most beautiful landscape opportunities for photographing that can be found anywhere in the world as far as I’m concerned.
I live in Appleton. The metropolitan area, also known as the Fox Cities, is home to about 250,000 people. I grew up in this part of the world but, as a young man at the age of twenty I moved to Chicago and lived there for over twenty-five years. I’ve been back in the Fox-Cities for over twenty years and going out into the countryside to photograph Wisconsin’s scenic landscapes is something that I love to do. I have recently come upon the town of Vinland just west of Neenah. Here, there is ample farmland and an abundance of fields with beautiful scenery which I am able to photograph, often times just off of county roads without stepping on to anyone’s private property. As a professional photographer I always ask permission before stepping onto someone’s land. This can be quite the undertaking when out in the country, as it is not always readily apparent as to whose property it is and, it can often take several hours, sometimes, many days to find out whose land that is that I wish to photograph. So photographing along the roadway is often the best option.
