NATURE DREAMS IMAGES
Fine Art photographic images and prints by Bill Hollister
My photographic specialty is what I term "Nature Impressions". I use the term “Nature Impression” to describe my photographic images that begin as straight photographs of some aspect of Nature; then I apply a sequence of proprietary digital techniques to produce an image that has the appearance and feel of a Impressionist painting.
While engaged in a career in the business world, I always made time to explore the beauty of the natural world. This led to an interest in photography. My focus spans the gamut of nature subjects: landscapes (especially the lovely California Sonoma Valley "wine country" where I live, and other Western scenics), animals (especially birds), and patterns in nature.
Several years ago I stumbled upon a set of digital techniques that form the basis for my Nature Impression images: For me, these images depict the vibrancy and energy that dwells inside each aspect of Nature. I have spent several years working with these techniques to show this vibrant energy until I was pleased with the final results.
Several of my galleries focus on Nature Impressions of specific subject matter (labeled as "Impressions"). Other galleries display some of my "normal" photographs of subjects in Nature. I hope you find them pleasing!
All of my Nature Impressions images are issued as limited editions. I personally print my Nature Painting images as giclee prints on archival textured fine art paper with archival inks. This is not available directly through the "Buy" function on the SmugMug site. If you wish this type of print please send me an email stating the image(s), print size, and number of prints you wish and I will provide you a price for making these prints personally and sending them to you. The price will be the same as listed in the "Buy" function for a matte print of the available sizes, but I can also provide quantity discounts based on the number of prints you order. All of my personal prints will be signed and numbered. You can send an email to me by clicking on the "contact" link at the bottom of this page.
You can currently view some of my work at the Riverfront Art Gallery in Petaluma, California and Towers Gallery in Cloverdale, California.
