About Chris Mercer
I live in central Florida and currently all of my photography is taken there, though I have future plans of expanding my domain.
I have a beautiful wife and two lovely children that I adore, but who will probably not be modeling for me here to preserve their privacy.
I have no formal education beyond high-school graduation and then the real education from the school of hard knocks. As far as my photography is concerned, I am self taught and continuing my education every time I go shooting. My current camera is an old Olympus Fe_110, five MegaPixel point and shoot that I picked up at a yard sale and have come close to mastering. When I can afford to, I will upgrade to a digital SLR and learn to master it. I can only hope that my love of the outdoors in general and photography in particular shines through.
It is my intention to deliver the most stunningly beautiful and unique photographic images and concepts that I am capable of. My medium is digital photography that I try to do the minimal amount of editing on to produce the images here. If the image is not an actual photograph, I will notify you in the description that the image is an artistic print as opposed to a photograph. With digital photography it is frequently somewhat easy to blur the lines between the two. I take pride in my work and retain all copyright and intellectual property rights unless I specifically grant you any or all rights to my work. All of the work here is my own artistic work. While my primary focus is normally wildlife and outdoor images, I am not afraid to try other venues.
