After a fruitful career shooting commercial and advertising photographs, the digital tsunami in the early 2000’s forced Mr. Magness to reconsider his photographic passion. At the time he could see the commercial photography business contracting, he decided change focus.
Mr. Magness had always had an interest in education and decided this was the time to pursue that career. Returning to school, Mr. Magness received his MA in Education with licensure in the Visual Arts and launched a 15 year career working with the younger generation.
The time spent teaching technology and photography gave him a new perspective.
Recently he has decided to return to his first love, the photographic image. His is a simple kind of photography, observing and documenting his environment, his yard and neighborhood. He’s motivated by the shear beauty of the natural world.
