The Cheyenne Artists Guild is hosting photography work by John Stephens for the June 10th Artwalk.
From John’s Bio: I have been taking pictures for as long as I can remember. I started in my pre-teen years with a Kodak box camera. I’m sure it was the family camera at the time, but I spent a lot of time with it! I built my own darkroom after I moved up to 35mm cameras. I enjoyed the creative process of the darkroom and enlarger. I also developed my own 35mm slides and negatives. Guess I didn’t have the patience to wait on a commercial developer.
I particularly enjoy nature, wildlife and landscape photography, although I’ve dabbled some in various other genres. I like capturing images of about anything outdoors. In my images I try to capture the essence of being in the place that I take my pictures. I hope to spark emotions of the viewers, to feel the breeze, smell the smells, and hear the sounds of nature and the outdoors.
I also enjoy doing photo restoration and repair. It amazes me to see the transformation from faded, creased, torn, etc. images back to their somewhat original state. Sometimes even nicer than the original!
The Guild will also be featuring live acoustic music by JC White.
