Award winning nature photographer Diana Whiting will be the December Guest Artist at Gallery 54 in Skaneateles, NY. Beginning with an opening reception from 5 to 8 pm on Friday, December 1, many fine art photographs resulting from her dedication and creativity will be available for viewing and purchase.

A Skaneateles resident and business owner (Headquarters Salon), Diana will be on hand to speak with gallery guests about her photographic experiences that date to 1993. “I come from a family of artists and as a child was encouraged to pursue my artistic leanings. So,” she adds, “when I bought my first professional camera I promised myself I would grow into it.”

Through photography she was able to develop her own voice. In her landscape and intimate nature photographs she's attracted to things that evoke rhythm and simplicity. “When I photograph wildlife,” she says, “I want to tell their stories.” Diana is known for spending hours studying wildlife in order to be able to understand the story her photos will convey.

She feels rewarded by the actual connections that she develops with her wildlife subjects. “I enjoy being accepted by wildlife and not influencing or changing their behavior,” she says. That acceptance has become “so many windows into other worlds.”

Her awards are numerous dating to the Michael Fawcett Award for a photo titled Stone Canoe in the “Journal of the Arts” in 2007. In 2010 she garnered second place in the National Audubon contest as well as a second place prize from the National Wildlife Federation. Other recognition has come her way from Nature Photography Magazine, the Adirondack Museum, and the Rocky Mountain School of Photography.

Light refreshments will be served with Toro Run Winery offering wine tastings. This show opening will also feature the music of Chris Molloy and his famous Blue Harp.
