Meet The Photographer
The heart of my photography:
I see photography not just as a matter of pointing and shooting but rather an art that allows me to capture a moment that can never be brought back. There are many elements to photography. Natural light, movement, emotions, ratio's all go into composing of a photograph.
I am pleased to welcome you to Chenevey Photography!
My name is Christine Chenevey and nature photography is my passion. I've been a photographer enthusiast for most of my adult life. I also have a great love for nature, and the beauty of what the earth has bestowed upon us.
Even though I live in the mid central area of America, my love of the great outdoors made for frequent forays into the western states, where my delights in the stunning vistas of Glacier National Park, Yellowstone, Arches, Cascade Range and the Pacific Coast. It was in these inspiratinal destinations I first learned to combine my love of nature with a love for snapping pictures ... I been hooked ever since. So it is only natural that I love capturing it on film, and more recently, digitally. I first started photographing with a film SLR (35mm) in the early 1980's using my then, Pentax K1000.
It was quite the dinosaur compared to the cameras of today. There was no such thing as automatic on a K1000. It's simplicity was the K1000's greatest strength. My camera of choice today, is a Nikon D7000. It is a wonderful little camera. Feel free to browse the galleries and enjoy!
Besides my own photography. I am also trying to preserve many of my family treasure troughs of old photographs. Some of these photos are quite old and fragile. I am pleased to share these with you. If you wish to contact me, you may do so by the contact form.
Thanks again for visiting this site. I hope you enjoy viewing my photographs and encourage you to visit again soon to see what I have captured during my latest travels.
