I have just spent an hour leafing through this wonderful album while listening to someone playing the old hymns on a piano. And what a treat it has been. Your artistry is abounding in every chapter and is so inspirational. The whole site is a work of art and full of magical interpretations. For me, the sections on Textures and Painted Effects and Still Life are just the apex of wonder, but all are outwith my limited compass. I hope many will come to look at this and enjoy these inspirational images. I will return again and again. Thank you for putting it together.
Wow - Hello Holly,
I stumbled across your photo stream on Flickr when I was trying to find examples of photographs with textures since this is a very new area of photography for me. I was completely mesmerized by your work. I eventually found my way to your website and cannot believe how incredible your work is. I have been doing photography on and off for about fifty years and I have to say that you produce the finest work that I have ever seen. There are others who produce a few good pieces here and there, but every single one of your photographs is a work of art. You are able to see a picture where most would see nothing. I wish I had the ability to see the world as you do.
I am a very big fan.
Best regards from Port Perry, Ontario,
Holly, you have a great eye and a rare talent, I truly love your images, the "feelings" you evoke throughout are awesome! and such a wide variety of work too! You have quite the knack for "great" composition and the textures are a perfect compliments to your subjects. An expressive wonderful portfolio here and more to come I am certain!
Hi Holly ... don't know if you remember me, but I was (still am) one of your biggest fans on Redbubble. Have noticed you haven't been around in a long time ... and just discovered your beautiful website here. Hope all is well ... and that you're still creating your magnificent art, only devoting your time somewhere other than RB. Best regards,
So well done Holly. Exposures and post processing is perfect....which it appears is your goal.
I was raised in the country and around farms. I live in North Georgia, USA. Ellijay, in Gilmer county, boasts itself to be the apple capital of the world?! Love the pictures. Followed a link from Monica Smidt's website
I wished to send a note to you expressing my appreciation of your work. Simply wonderful. I love the elegance and simplicity. To me this is the sign of a true artist. I hope to reach that goal myself in time.
Wow, I love still lifes. Photos and paintings. Your art is amazing and breath takingly wonderful. Your ability to capture the light and give your work that "old" feeling. Like I am stepping into the world of the old masters. I admire and long for your talent. Truly you inspire me!
looking at your work I am reduced to humming sounds, as when eating food or enjoying other marvelous activities...words seem pitifully inadequate.
My name is Samantha, I'm Italian but I currenlty live in Prague. I found your website by chance and I just wanted to let you know that I really appreciate your works. I don't know much about photography, but I love to paint in my free time and I really find your still-life shots inspiring. They just enlighten everyday life (which is so dull at times) with magic atmospheres and a drop of delicate poetry. Simply beautiful.
your fabulous images
Hi... just had to say how wonderful and inspirational your images are. I must try harder!
Have enjoyed immensely your water shots. Any one who knows the Great Lakes knows you have captured the spirit of Lake Ontario. Keep shooting-- you're just incredible
Black and Whites
Love your work ,the black and whites bring tons of emotion to your work . Keep on shooting
Just wanted to say hi Holly. I love your work. I love your still life work the most. I just love the softness you are able to capture with the lighting. Fantastic work. Thank you for sharing it with the RedBubble Group, Fruit and Vegi Shop. We love seeing it all.
Excellent job! I look forward to seeing much more of your work.
Your still life images
I just came across your website and I want to say how truly beautiful your still life work is. I also love still life... and it is my most passionate subject to photograph. I always enjoy seeing other artist's work.... Your lighting is amazing too....
Thank you for sharing your incredibly beautiful work!
Red Bubble Hello
Holly I have found your photos on red bubble through the forum . You replied to my post on macro lenses. Thank you for that. I am going for the 100mm macro. I find your work is awesome. You have a great eye and much talent. I am intrigued to know what equipment you use?
I am in Melbourne Australia.
Best wishes Pauline
Holly ... I love your work ... It's just so simply beautiful and very strong. I emailed you from Red Bubble and forgot to ask what camera and lens do you favor for your still life images? I am a big FAN. Not a lot of people appreciate SL images.
I just know you enjoy what you are doing...it shows in all of your work which by the way is so impressive and a joy to view. I wish I could own all of your beauties, but for now, i am truly inspired...I will watch the light :)
Looking at your work from the bubble
outstanding site well done
RE Your images
Just came across your images on Redbubble and then to your website. Love your images especially the flowers, they are fantastic. I see that most of Canada is in a deep freeze right now..while we down here in Australia are warming up!
Cheers Berni Stanley
I hope you and your family are well, i was looking at your new images, you are an amazing photographer, i hope this will be a fantastic year for you..
Best wishes from across the pond.
Well, I'm late for work but had to drop a line. I spent some time on your Redbubble images, and had to take a peek at your site.. I'll have to come back again... I am taken aback by the sheer perfectness of the work... Lighting, subject matter, composition, and clarity.... Well done the bar is raised pretty high here....some of your work is S P E L L B I N D I N G !!!!!!
I came across your website through the earth shot picture. I have really enjoyed seeing your gallery. Your pictures are beautifully crisp and capture the light beautifully. I see that you used a canon 400D for the picture on the earth shot. Do you use this all the time? If so, what lenses do you use to get this level of clarity?
I am just starting out and shoot with the 400D too but have not had this level of success.
Based on your pictures, I am assuming you are in the states. Isn't the 400 called a rebel?
Thanks for sharing your images!
ThanksI had taken up photography and started to get frustrated at seeming to be unable to catch a "great shot". Just wanted to thank you for your inspiring work that has made me pick up the camera again.

Earth Shots--Blizzard Sunset
Fantastic photo! I've always been fascinated with weather--light, clouds, auroras, storms.........all of it. In California I once saw a rainbow in a dust storm--no camera with me of course. A few years ago, I saw a fog-bow--would have thought I was imagining it if I had not just bought a book about weather. Your flower shots are great also--keep up the good work!
Katherine L. Strassburg
Some fanatstic shots on your site and easy to navigate which always helps when viewing photography web sites. I am honoured that you have me under the work by friends section. I always enjoy your flower work as that's where I started a few years ago... Here is to the future.
Your friend - HHHardhhhat
Holly, I thoroughly enjoyed perusing your website, discovered when EarthShots chose Blizzard Sunset for their Photo of the Day today. Where in Canada are you? Look forward to more.
Wow! You are terrific. Really pleased you are doing so well and enjoying it. Congratulations again on such nice work
Your website is terrific. Not only is it good photography but it is a learning experience for the best photographer. Your explanation of the use of light to enhance even the most modest of scenes is so real as proved by your sample pictures
Hi Holly, i love the new site,your pictures look great, looking forward to seeing some new stuff as the Canadian winter turns to spring.
Best wishes from accross the pond.
Holly my friend, this is a wonderful website. Set out most professionally to showcase your wonderful images. You are one of my favourite photographers who knows how to capture light and subject in a most unique way.
Saved to favourites so I can come back again and again for inspiration.
Your Kentish pal, 'eyes'Pat
Nice work Holly Jean. It brings great joy to my heart to see the love and skill this effort has brought forth. It's a wonderful thing to find something you truly love in life.
Your webpage is beautiful. The dark charcoal background really makes your outstanding images stand out! hahaha - this is excellent! What a good job you did with this. I'll save this in my favorites!
Hi Holly: I just stopped by RB for a few moments and saw your message about the new site. WOW! Everything looks wonderful, professional, well organized. You should be proud as this is a superb portfolio.
Blessings, Carolyn Staut
