Robert Shreve – International Award Winning Fine Art Photographer
Growing up in the deserts of West Texas, Robert pursued and explored photography more formally during the summer before his senior year of high school. After attending Texas Tech Photography School in the summer of 1979, he became one of the Annual Staff Photographers for his high school, shooting everything from sports action to portraits and candid shots.
Robert enjoyed his exploration into the world of photography during his last year of high school but decided to no longer pursue it. He attended University and Graduate School to become a CPA, pursuing corporate work during his 20’s, 30’s and 40’s with heavy emphasis in Mergers and Acquisitions, Real Estate, Oil and Gas and Emerging Software Technology.
In 2005, Robert began to explore other adventures. He had already become an Instrument Rated Private Pilot in 2002. In a world of numbers, Robert started looking to further expand into a creative outlet. He reacquainted himself with the photographic world and picked up a digital camera and started shooting. Transitioning from film proved to be an opportunity and right around the same time, he began traveling extensively all over the world. His eyes were opened up to a whole new and colorful planet, landscapes and nature. Robert saw the beauty in the subtle nuances of each location/culture and began to capture it with his camera.
Before long, Robert found himself immersed in equipment research and photography education- studying every great book and write up he could get his hands on. After 2005, he took his photography to the next level, purchasing professional grade lighting and equipment, as well as the best cameras he could buy including Nikon, Canon, Leica, Hasselblad and Phase One professional gear.
During the next few years, Robert explored new genres in photography- everything from lifestyle, to landscapes, stock and bridal photography. After years of shooting Robert found that Landscape and Wildlife Photography was his passion, a passion he pursues to this day. Traveling the world to capture remote locations in timely light creating beautiful landscapes. The struggle is timing and departure from family to pursue these interests.
Robert has traveled a great deal of the United States, Mexico, Iceland, Australia, New Zealand, China, SE Asia, Canada, Central America, Europe, Africa and many other global destinations. Shreve continues to travel extensively to find those moments of beauty and light in a world of landscapes and wildlife. Through his travels, Shreve has developed a heightened awareness of global issues and interest in the preservation of the planet and its beautiful wildlife and is an advocate of the escalated global awareness of planet preservation.
The Journey of the Landscape Photographer experience is one that most people rarely see. The Landscape photographer is up early, works when everyone else is eating, sleeping and hikes into dangerous unknown territory and often leaves with no resulting image. Shreve’s most known quote is “Landscape Photography encourages me to go places I otherwise might not ever go.” The award-winning Landscape image is rarely out the back door of a resort but, typically in some remote, minimally traveled destination or just plain luck of being in the right place at the right time.
Shreve recognizes that light, composition, drama, color and presentation produce the finest Fine Art images. Central to all photography is the capture of light and its majestic way of illuminating a subject to please the viewer. Landscape Photography is a continuing learning experience through being in the field shooting, articles, books, sharing, workshops and other photographers you meet along the way.
Shreve’s work has been recognized many times since 2012, so far, has won many International Awards and is known amongst the International Landscape Photographers global alumni.
