Bio - wendybaker

Fantasy, Feminine, Innocence, Whimsy, Dreams, Mystery & Exploration are words that best describe my fine art photography.

I warmly welcome you to this page. Thanks for stopping by.

In my fine art  work, I combine my passion for landscape, architectural and portrait photography to create visual stories evoking a feeling of mystery. My imagination was originally inspired by beautifully illustrated fairly tale books of my childhood. I am still captivated by the idea of unseen beings and journeys— whether to far off lands or deep into the self.

My goal is to create a feeling of magic--of dreamlike transition from the known to the unknown by using beautiful light, muted colors, and compositions that draw the viewer in.

As the owner of a photography business for several years, I’ve learned that I love everything about the creative process. From getting up before dawn in a new city to capture the perfect light--to combining the elements I've gathered into a unique visual story.

One that I hope will spark the viewer's own memories & imagination.
