Announcement   Limited Edition Bird Art Prints, Nature Photography, and Beach Art by Susie Loucks.

Coastal birds are my main subject matter. Since they are wild animals, getting a quality image is a constant challenge. The work you see here represents the best of hundreds of thousands of photographs. In an effort to show off their mechanics, I strive to catch these animals in unusual postures.

Photographing birds takes time and patience, however the more time one spends observing an animal, the more one sees its distinct personality emerge. Whether its demeanor is shy, playful, or curious, when a bird is in flight, its feathers are like a flower in bloom, everyday is Spring.

About printing: Limited edition prints are printed with museum quality products for clarity, color, and archival quality. For open ended prints 8" x 10" and smaller, I print with 100% Canon inks and paper. It's a little more expensive but I believe it's worth it.

Limited editions ship for free within the U.S.

I love this picture! It's beautiful! The shipping was super fast! It did get a little bent at the bottom during shipping, but I plan to mat it anyways so it will be covered. I've had two of your other seagull pictures in my wish list for awhile now and hope I can come back and buy them soon. Thank you so much! Can't wait to get this framed!

About

A Day at the Beach

Not every shot's a beauty. I can't ask birds to pose, I can only take what they give me. I'm just along for the ride. This ride can get quite bumpy since my main subject matter is a wild animal in motion. What makes matters worse? They fly away. Focus and cropping are a constant and frustrating challenge. When I come home from a day of shooting and review my shots, I find myself thinking over and over: "Wow, that would have been a great shot if only..." because a wing, beak, or foot is cut off. Since feathers are so detailed, focus really counts, it's my biggest hurdle. All the years spent and literally millions of bad shots are worth it because when I look through my camera lens, the birds are mine and I am theirs.
Mainly, with all my subjects, I’m drawn to the details of motion, lines, and overall geometry found in nature. I shoot the ocean using long-exposure photography to accent these elements.
