Shannon Loughrey – The Greenhouse on the River
We all search for something that brings comfort to our lives. We find solace in various mediums, for myself, I find solace in photography, and specifically birds.
Being born and raised in the Peterborough area, I continue to find this my favorite place to explore my photography options. This area has many seasonal and migrating birds so the photography possibilities are endless but challenging.
So far my photography has mostly focused on wildlife and nature. This passion for nature, which began with observing Moose in Algonquin Park, has evolved over the years from observing to photographing, which has brought me here to my very first exhibit “Solace of Birds”.
To be able to capture a photograph of a bird in that split second is exciting, invigorating, but very challenging.
If I can invoke a feeling of peace, beauty, or just plain Aww in a photograph then I have met my goal.
Hopefully you too, will see some Solace in my bird photographs.
I would like to thank the Greenhouse on the River for allowing me to launch my first Spark Photo Festival exhibit at their greenhouse. I feel we are a great fit as most of my photographs for this exhibit have been taken along the Otonabee River, right outside their business.
