Exhibit showing at the Gilpin County Library
Roger Doak is an award winning photographer born in upstate New York who moved to Colorado as a young boy. Living in the scenic beauty of the Gunnison area he developed a profound appreciation of nature. Roger’s enjoyment of nature proved to be the impetus of his passion for photography. In 2005, he received two first place finishes in a photo competition as judged by esteemed photographer, John Fielder. This recognition, and with encouragement from friends and family, inspired Roger to start his business: Roger Doak Photography (www.rogerdoak.com). Since then, his photography has been acknowledged with a number of awards. Roger’s clients include hospitals, galleries, corporations, and government.
Roger’s photography celebrates nature’s art work: majestic landscapes, micro elements, and stately wildlife. He believes an excellent photo needs to be technically accurate; lighting, color, form, and composition. In addition to technical precision, he also understands an exceptional photo captures a unique moment that engages the viewer’s eye and provides an emotional attachment. Achieving the aforementioned objectives allowed Roger to create the inspiring images you see in his exhibit, “CAPTURED – Moments in Nature,” at the Gilpin County Public Library. It is Roger’s goal to show and share nature’s majestic and peaceful moments in his photography. Enjoy!
