About Image 10 Photographic and Craig
Creative and abstract photography is based on the photographers eye.
The photographer is looking to create something in a
unique way that would not usually be seen.
Image 10 Photographic began in 1988 with a passion for landscape photography and a desire to experience God's creation and capture God’s handiwork.
My first experiences with photography began in high school in journalism class as a yearbook photographer and also for the local newspaper in my home town, Holland, Michigan. It was at this time I began my extensive journey and education in manual cameras, black and white film and printing in the darkroom. During this time I built a strong foundation and learned the true “art of photography”.
In the 90’s – completely self-taught – I worked at refining my photographic techniques using my trusty Nikon SLR and transparency film before finally moving over to the “digital world” in 2012.
Now, I enjoy all the creative doors digital photography has opened and all it’s post-processing challenges – similar to that of my early years in the darkroom but now using computers and software.
I am a seasoned professional business owner, photographer and instructor who is passionate about all things photographable!
My photography is a collaboration of in-camera and digital techniques focusing on details, patterns, lines, form, shape and colors that complete a subject and utilize those key features to make a supercharged and engaging image focusing on astrophotography, cityscapes, landscapes, abstracts and impressions.
I am a global traveller and continue to teach photography workshops throughout the US.
Photography has always been a way for me to slow down my life, a way to stop and reflect on what is important. A time to refuel, refresh and recharge – I am grateful for it in my life.
Time is a precious commodity for all of us with busy lives, so whenever you can immerse yourself in God’s country, engage with your surroundings and enjoy the “recharge” that outdoor photography can provide – I highly recommend it.
