Fae Hansen, Photographer of the dogwoodFae Hansen lives in Campbell River and takes photos wherever she goes. She took the dogwood photo in the book Amazing British Columbia on a trip to Vancouver.
Fae sent some information about herself.
I was born and raised on Vancouver Island. I did live in Vancouver for a short time when I was a young mother, but missed the laid back friendliness of a small community, and the instant access to nature. I returned to the North Island, and have lived here for the last 35 years, retiring 3 years ago.
You won't find many astounding trick shots in my photo stream. I tend to view things spiritually, and the photography is my communication with nature.
No picture has been taken, Lord, that ever duplicated,
The majesty and splendor of the nature you created,
Although my mind beholds it, it would surely seem,
The perfect picture I would paint, remains but just a dream.
I wrote that poem years ago when I aspired to be a painter. After I got my first digital camera, just to take shots to paint I thought, I grew addicted to the instant gratification presented by digital photography. I rarely paint now, but perhaps one day when I am too old (or gas is too expensive) I will again paint. For now, I can't get enough of nature's daily gifts of "eye candy." Wild flowers and forest paths are "music to my eyes."
You can see more of her photos on flickr.
