ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHER - ED WELCH

Ed Welch at Mesa Arch in Canyonlands, UT

Welcome and thanks for visiting my site. I live with my wife, Sherry in Churchville, NY. I am retired teacher / administrator who became serious about photography about 20 years ago. In addition to my passion for photography I enjoy travel, fly fishing, archery, golf, reading, and spending time with my grandsons and at our cottage on Lake Ontario.

With the exception of an introductory “Getting To Know Your SLR” class taken at the Community Darkroom at the Genesee Center for the Arts and Education over 20 years ago and some Continuing Education classes taken through the Rush Henrietta School District with local photographer Gary Thompson, I am mostly self-taught; relying on magazines, blogs, the internet, and trial and error. Living in the Rochester area I am fortunate to be near many expert photographers who have provided both inspiration and expertise. Gary Thompson and Sheridan Vincent are just two who have helped me grow and improve as a photographer.

As you look through my galleries, I hope you find photographs that you feel would add to your home or office decor.  All of my images are available as photographic prints in a variety of sizes. Some, especially the panoramic prints, can be printed in very large sizes up to five or six feet wide.  Professional framing using archival materials is also available. It is a great compliment to have my photographs used to decorate many homes and businesses. My photographs are also used in websites, brochures, and publications.

If you have particular ideas or themes for your décor that I do not currently have in my galleries please let my know. I would be happy to work with you to meet your specific needs.

Thanks again for visiting my site.
