Portraits of a Different Sort, Lighthouse Photography
By: Cam Chapman Lighthouse Photography
Cam travels the highways and back roads of the United States in his vintage motor coach, always searching for new subjects, working his love of lighthouse photography together with the art show circuit where he shares the fruits of his labor with patrons. He will be at the 13th Annual “Under the Oaks Arts Festival” at the Whalehead Club again this year where you will find him in good company with over 100 other fine artists and craftsmen.
After a very successful commercial photography career, Cam decided to heed the call of road and sea, tackling this new venture wholeheartedly. With a lifestyle that is free and spontaneous – but tough – he awakes many days well before dawn to capture that moment of sunrise, sifting through the ever-changing light, shadows and reflections. After hours of research, often chartering boats to find the perfect position, he is aways searching for “an enhanced reality – the perfect day in the perfect light” as he puts it. Many a time he has to return again and again, playing a waiting game with the sun, as he says “to capture that light just as it shapes my portrait composition perfectly – when the timeless icons of the sea become art.” As one of his many admirers exclaims “it is as if he paints with light!”
Visitors will recognize many of Cam’s portrait subjects – majestic landmarks from history and travelogues, and others, obscure but often as enchanting and beautiful in their own way. His photographs capture the romanticism and emotion of these structures, truly creating “portraits”
