The footprints of a modern visual artist

Even though photography was a common activity most of Craig's life, he caught industry attention internationally when he was revealed as the nature Discovery of the Year in the 10th anniversary Lucie Awards.  Where the Grammy awards recognize music artists and the Tonys, broadway, the Lucie Awards are reserved exclusively for the top ranks of photographic artists.

Craig also dominated 2012 with the #1 panoramic photograph in the world, Tempest.  Rising to the top of the definitive global panoramic tournament called the EPSON International Pano Awards also resulted in Craig being christened with the Photographer Of The Year title win - an achievement that has continued to elude other highly marketed, recognized and famous photographers.

And he didn't stop there...

Craig went on to pile up the title awards in the following years.  His fascinating images are consistently awarded and are growing in worldwide recognition, making him among the most awarded landscape photographers to date.

As a result, he is currently in contention

of the most awarded SONY landscape

photographer globally.

Craig's images have been seen in gallery events and publications such as Outdoor Photographer Magazine, Landscape Photography Magazine, USA Today, National Television, The Nature Conservancy and the U.S. National Park Service as well as being collected by U.S. presidents, celebrities, and private fine art collectors internationally. His hard work paid off - creating a true demand by all walks of life. His vivid, high impact style that he is known for is inspiring to say the least - as some say "an indescribable feeling of amazement and captivating visual drama".

"Within some of the images of this website, I have created, and are still developing, the capture of these sublime and fragile moments to compose an image that employs additional tools, exposures or capture techniques. Technological advances in this industry not only allow me to appreciate and utilize past techniques, but embrace the future of photographic science... one without limitations. Some of these images took long durations in dim, fading light to expose just one frame. In other images, I use multiple captures of shutter speed, lens filters, or times of day to compose an image that our normal vision would normally be deprived of. Using these different tools of cameras, filters, time, light, space and patience I hope to share images that we may not easily or not at all experience directly, but are there - waiting to be discovered...

In achieving a Master of Photography in Fine Art in 2019, Craig continues to fortify his career with world class imagery.  When asked what genre of photography he is, Craig replied, "Many photographers stick with a very narrow or focused genre or styled theme.  I feel the challenge of pushing my creative limits - often with unfamiliar techniques or territory - to be fraught with failure, but almost always is finally rewarded with authentic and successful results."
