Stan Ford

 


Stan Ford is an award-winning nature photographer specializing in landscapes and wildlife.  He works primarily in the public lands of the American southwest and west. 

 

Prior to taking up photography, Stan had a 30-year career in government and public service.  It was approximately five years into his retirement he decided to pursue photography.

 

His formal education led him to earn degrees in Biology (B.S.) and Natural Resources (M.A).  His artist style draws upon his knowledge and experience in these fields.

 

His work was included in Nature Photographer in his articles “Yosemite: Beyond the Icons” and “Textures, Shapes & Colors,” as well as other publications.  The fourth edition of his book – Mother Nature’s Selfies will be available later this year.  His photographs have been exhibited in numerous shows and can be seen in the Albuquerque Photographer’s Gallery.

 

Stan was honored in 2016 to be chosen by the National Parks Arts Foundation to serve the National Park Service as the “first-ever” Artist-in-Residence at Pecos National Historical Park.

 

In July 2017, his image titled “Light from Above” won first place in the international photo contest the “Beauty of Stone.”

 

Photographing nature and documenting his experiences has become his raison d'être.  He is honored to be able to share his work with others and hopes you will enjoy his images, as much as he did capturing them.
