Clay Swatzell

I am a freelance photographer. While most of my photography knowledge consists of self-guided education I did receive a formal photography education from the New York Institute of Photography.

I do portraits, commercial photography, and fine art photography. I am addicted to light. I see many examples of dramatic lighting every day. When dramatic lighting doesn't occur on its own I love to help it along through the use of a variety of photography techniques.

My photographs represent my view of the world around me and things I find interesting. I don't believe a photograph is completed until it is processed. In the digital realm, this is achieved through the use of Photoshop/Lightroom.

I retired from my life long work (not photography related) in November 2011. I then began to dedicate most of my time to photography.
