Ian Anderson is a self-taught photographer living in Tallahassee, Florida. His work has been exhibited at the Mary Brogan Museum of Art and Science and has been featured on the cover of the Florida State Parks calendar. He has self-published two books, Untamed Beauty: Saint Marks National Wildlife Refuge and In Bloom: Alfred B. Maclay Gardens State Park. Ian holds an English degree and an MBA and when away from his camera, is a project manager overseeing multimillion-dollar projects for large corporations and government agencies.
Ian photographs nature because it represents a great challenge in that he has control over the camera but no control over the light, weather, or his subjects. To create a successful photograph, Ian must find beauty in the chaos of nature, and work with all of the adverse elements to capture that one, ideal moment in time. On the rare occasions when everything comes together with a click of the shutter, Ian feels he has accomplished what means most to him: sharing his uniquely personal vision of nature’s magnificence.
The challenges of nature photography give Ian an advantage for his commercial clients because he can adapt to the conditions and get the shot they need. He is able to solve any problems that come up whether they be tropical storms, fire ants, short timeframes, or anything else thrown at him.
The portfolio is just a small selection of Ian's work, if you are interested in his services or a print, please contact him for more information and a larger selection of photos.
