Connie McClaran is a Fine Art Landscape photographer in love with the outdoors and the practice of contemplative photography.
My work is an expression of the deep connection I feel with the natural world. When I’m on a photographic “walkabout”, I allow the lines of separation to blur and settle into an immersion that becomes the images you’ll see on this website.
Before I even begin to find a photograph, I wait for all of the sensory experiences of the place I’m in to come alive in their interwoven relationships with one another: the bird’s song, the stillness of the lake, the voice of the wind in trees, the rush of the creek, the distant movement in the clouds. When they come together and I feel a part of it, I pick up my camera and get lost in the magic of bringing it into a photograph.
