About Will Swinnea
Will Swinnea is a published/commissioned Texas Fine Art landscape photographer for which his work mainly focuses on that of his hometown of Austin, Texas with other landscape images consisting that of the beautiful Texas Hill Country.
Growing up , Will was active in Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts, for which he earned the rank of Eagle. Being surrounded by those environments at a early age, is why landscapes would ultimately become his photography niche.
I recall my first hands on experience with photography started back in my high school and middle school days, for which I used a Canon black and white film camera to post-process (along with printing) my photos in a traditional dark room.
However, It wasn't until a few years ago that I picked up photography again, this time a DSLR camera (Nikon D80) which ultimately led me to take on photography more seriously.
At the end of the day, my goal and purpose of my work, is to help inspire others out there to visit and explore the great beauty that is Texas.
I plan on photographing other Texas landscape and cityscape images outside the Austin area, and to continue sharing those experiences with you.
Once again, thank you for visiting my site. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me should you have one!
The majority of my work is processed using a single raw exposure,with the combination of both Lighrooom and OnOne Perfect Effects. The biggest influence that goes into more work would be from Ansel Adams in Color. As many out-there know, Ansel was known primarily for his black-and-white landscape photos. However his color photos made a bigger impact on me, most noticeably his work with Kodachrome.
