Canyonlights Photography/Susan S Peirce
I have been a photographer and educator for 20 years and have my own studio NW of Lyons in the Little Thompson River Valley. I taught art history on the college level, traveled for educational purposes and recently left academia to pursue photography full time. I am an image provider for universities and libraries world wide and since slides are no longer being utilized as they once were, I am in the process of having my archive digitized to be offered online at ARTstor and also to be able to offer files off my web site.
Recently, I completed a photo documentation project to protect the Little Thompson River Valley from inundation and destruction from a proposed dam and am currently involved in a two year photo documentation project for one of the property owners involved in the project. I have also been photographing other properties for their owners and have recently begun to do commercial work as well as photo documentation of ancient and historic sites for ARTstor. I just completed a shoot of the 21 California Missions for ARTstor. For my personal photography, I am attracted to landscape, nature, architecture, and ancient ruins. Recently, I have been using PhotoShop to be more creative and produce more painterly and avant-garde photos. I also offer individual classes and group workshops.
My photographs can be seen at Nick Angelo Fine Art and Prints in Lyons, the McGuckin's Design Center in Boulder, and The Bishop Gallery in Scottsdale and on the Peak-to-Peak Highway. Trudi Horowitz Interior Art Design and Betsy Burton Blue Horse Fine Arts also represent my work.
I use both 35mm and digital equipment, including Nikon, Fuji and Canon pro cameras, Velvia films, a Nikon Slide scanner, Epson flat bed scanner, and Macintosh computers. I print on Epson photo inkjet printers.
