About Walt Marz




ARTIST STATEMENT

 

Walt Marz - Nature, Wildlife and Travel Photographer

 


When I was a kid with my first box camera, I would take pictures of what ever “turned me on”. Usually it was an animal, a bird, or something in the natural world.  Now, unless I’m on assignment, I still take these same types of pictures.  

EYES ON YOU:  Making eye “connections” with is my favorite type of wildlife photography. Like with people, it’ that sense of looking into the Windows of the Soul.  

WILDLIFE:  Animal life of all sorts.  

BIRDS:  A favorite subject anytime, anyplace. 

NATURESunrises, sunsets, storms, fogs, mists, along with those meditative moments of “watching the waves roll in”. PATHWAYS is a subset of this.

TRAVEL: Adventure, places, landscapes. PEOPLE is a subset of this. 

MACRO WORLD: Telephotos, closeups, of the plants and the little things in Nature, insects, etc.

GODS WORLD: There are times when I don’t now why a certain scene “grabs me”.  Sometimes I think it is just God telling me to “take the picture, already!”
