Welcome to ImagesByCraig.com. I am a higher-ed IT professional and self-taught amateur digital photographer/artist/documentarian from Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. Since 2008, I have photographed a wide variety of subjects including high school sports, wildlife, landscapes, travel, and human interest/documentary content.
Photography is personal to me; providing me with the opportunity to escape from my daily routine, slow down, and become more mindful of the world around me and my place in it. I photograph subjects that intrigue and/or inspire me. I create as a part of my ongoing journey of self and life discovery to become a better version of myself and a means of inspiring others to do the same.
I enjoy creating photos that are truly representative of the setting in which I captured them; rendering the final composition in monochrome or color (I'm especially fond of the color of photos and slides from the time when I was a child in the '60s). I also strive to utilize editing options that mimic film editing techniques to create a more traditional look and feel to my work.
Thank you for taking the time to join me on a visual journey experiencing the magic of life as I see it through my lens. If you would like to inquire about using any of my images for print, publication, or purchase, or if you are interested in discussing contract work, do not hesitate to reach out to me via my Contact page.
