Welcome to Elegant Flower Photographs
My name is David Perry Lawrence and I love flowers. My photographs of flowers have been selected for juried competitions across the country. I want to share my love of flowers with you and hope you see some images here that fill you with joy or pleasure. Please consider purchasing one of the stunningly beautiful canvas prints that are for sale.
I grew up with flowers. My father grew orchids, first Cataleyas, with their broad petals that were often seen in corsages in the ‘50’s and 60’s, then the currently popular Phalaenopsis, or ‘Ghost Orchid’. We had three greenhouses in our backyard. So I can honestly say I grew up with flowers.
I come from an artistic family. My mother, aunt, and uncle were painters, and my mother’s brother, the late James Brooks was one of the founders of the Abstract Expressionist painting movement. Uncle Jim and Jackson Pollack were art school roommates and close friends.
I attended Yale University, where I studied photography with the late American Master, Walker Evans. After graduation, I went on to pursue a professional photography career, being hired to photograph at least three Presidents, and numerous Hollywood stars and famous businessmen. My wonderful wife Judy and I retired to Mexico in 2009.
One morning, walking behind my new home in Wisconsin, I saw a ray of light shining upon a fresh flower growing on a tree, ‘White Tree Flower in the Sun – 0457’ in the Wildflowers gallery. From that moment on, I was hooked. I was going to shoot flowers. At first I photographed them in the field, but the shots were hard to control. The wind would blow the blossoms back and forth, the light wasn’t always predictable, other factors came into play, so I decided to take the flowers indoors and shoot them in a studio setting (my kitchen) with inexpensive studio lighting. I was instantly enthralled with the results I could achieve there. See ‘White Phalaenopsis Orchids – 3059’ and others in the Studio Flowers gallery.
My style has developed significantly in the past few years, and I’m thrilled to say that my photographs have begun to be included in juried shows around the country.
I hope that you enjoy what you see here. All the photographs can be purchased as either beautiful signed and authenticated giclee canvas prints or signed paper prints.
