Wendy Nelson Photography

Wendy Nelson Photography Fine Art Photographer specializing in wildlife and pet photography (Furtography) Where life exists, stories happen. I’m a Virginia Master Naturalist.

Whether its ants lining up to collect food, a gunsmith working his trade, or the dance of the snowy egret looking for lunch, the act of living tells a story. Through these photos, I will share glimpses of different lives from all perspectives, from creatures great and small. With each picture, we can see a glimpse into the life of another. With each glimpse, we can better envision the different st

ories of our world. One story alone does not compose the book of life; I hope that through my collection, I can record more chapters of that book for you to read, as you see All Stories Great and Small. I have been doing fine art photography for 27 years. I’ve had my work published on NationalGeographic.com and in The Virginia Wildlife Magazine. I’ve been known to sit in the same spot for days to capture just the perfect moment, and I want to bring those moments to everyone, so we can share and delight in discoveries. I hope that we can marvel together at the little details of the world and the uniqueness that each living creature brings us!

When photographing pelican's, one has to think of the Dixon Lanier Merritt poem:

A wonderful bird is the pelican,
His bill will hold more than his belican,
He can take in his beak
Enough food for a week
But I'm damned if I see how the helican!

Another wonderful day photographing the incredible friends available for adoption at Heritage Humane Society. Here's a preview of Emma's photoshoot. What a sweet dog to work with!

Please share this, and visit Heritage Humane Society's site frequently -- there are so many wonderful friends looking for their forever homes! Let's help them find their new families.

Opening night of my solo show is tomorrow from 6:00-8:00! Here's a behind the scenes look at the making of my new piece "Early Morning Contemplations".

The first shot is the final. The second shot is how easy it is to work with kittens. (note where Cleo thought she *should* be sitting, and the flowers pulled out of the vase, etc.)

Join me at Art Works in Richmond tomorrow night!

I keep telling Cleo that she does NOT need to help me pack up artwork, but somehow it seems appropriate this time around!
