Larry Friedman Artist's Statement
After thoroughly enjoying the practice of Veterinary Medicine and Surgery for 23 years in Rock Springs and Green River Wyoming, I felt the need to try something different, that I also loved, so my practice was sold and Wilderness Concepts Photography was born.
At first, I worked only with large and medium format cameras to insure the highest of quality in my work but now with the onset of the computer, along with wonderful software, I use 35MM for much of what I do. In the last few years, I have converted to using digital cameras and only use film for jobs that require their use.
Since starting my business, I added many different elements of photography to be able to meet differing needs. Many have invested in my work and these prints hang in corporate offices around the world but landscape work alone is limiting and I felt the need to work full time so the studying began and expansion into portraiture and macro photography evolved.
This website represents my niche in photography and pretty much covers my spectrum. The people, wedding and commercial galleries are for potential clients looking for a photographer, with all images in the other galleries available for your investment.
Each of the images in this website are from negatives, transparencies or digital files, the film segment represented by large, medium and 35MM formats which are scanned and then printed on photographic paper by a high quality lab. You can be assured that any image you invest in has received the utmost of care to be reproduced to the best quality possible.
