Welcome!

I am glad you've visited my new store and blog. Here, you'll find prints of my landscape photography available in high-quality materials, with orders taken, produced and shipped by a large, reputable, third-party vendor. I offer a variety of media--prints on fine art paper; on high-gloss metal or on wood; on acrylic to bring out lots of detail, and canvas gallery wraps, where the image is printed on canvas and wrapped around a wooden frame, to create wall art that looks much like a painting on canvas. For appropriate products, you'll find a wide selection of frames.
 

I hope you will also check out my blog, with a post coming out each week. I write about landscape--the places we occupy on the planet, and our way of perceiving and presenting landscape as art. I will also write about other planetary topics--environmentalism, geography, maps, and geology.

Lake Superior is nearly always pretty cold, so I was wearing a scarf in this picture, when I was coming home from a sailing and photo expedition--in August.


About My Work:

I don't aim to make photographs of subjects--say, a photo of a bird or a building. Instead, I work in specific outdoor conditions, to produce compositions in colors that are natural to the scene. Generally, I strive for the journalistic approach--this is what this piece of land looks like.  Only occasionally do I work with heightening or altering effects.

I'm a pretty adventurous type. I've been to six foreign countries and nearly every state. In April, I took off on a 3,000-mile odyssey ending in the American Southwest. Some pictures from that sojourn are included in these initial offerings.
Now I live in Minnesota's Northland, blocks from Lake Superior, in part because the area has a lot of natural beauty.

I have been fascinated by landscape, the Earth, and the natural world since early childhood. I studied drawing, color and composition in my high school's art classes and in Saturday classes at The Art Institute of Chicago. In grad school at Loyola University, Chicago, I followed my other passions, reading and writing, and focused in part on the history of the landscape genre in European art and literature.

I have been creating landscape photography since 2012, and will soon be offering my original art in addition to photographic prints.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you with any questions or concerns you might have. Please use the contact form to get in touch; you will generally hear from me before the end of the day.

Again, thanks for your patronage.

 

 

Mission:

As a landscape photographer, I am acutely aware of how our natural environment is changing. For example, as the planet warms and snow decreases, I have felt a growing urgency about capturing snowy landscapes. Thus, a portion of each year's profits will be donated to groups finding solutions to climate change. 

I will soon be running fundraisers for environmental organizations on my Facebook business page, which you can visit and like at: https://www.facebook.com/lauramarlandphotography

In this shot, I was sitting in the woods on a late summer day, waiting for the light to change.
