BEV PETTIT - FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY

Photography became a significant part of my life as an artist when I moved to Hong Kong in 1991. I lived in Asia for over six years. This is where I bought my first camera so that I could document the colorful lives of the Asian people. I backpacked throughout villages in China, Vietnam, Cambodia, India, Thailand and Malaysia with a Minolta film camera and as many rolls of film that I could carry in a back pack. Traveling by motorcycle, bicycle and bus allowed me to have close contact with the people and experience their culture first hand. After six years in Asia I moved to London where I spent another three years before returning to my home country, the United States.

Having grown up in a small rural community in Minnesota, I have learned to respect and admire animals and appreciate their gift to us. Coming full circle in 1999, after returning to the United States, I settled on a small ranch in northern Arizona where I can walk out my door and be surrounded by nature. This is when I began to photograph what inspires me the most: Horses, both wild and domestic.

When photographing these magnificent animals I spend whatever time it takes for me to understand them, to learn what they are thinking and what they are feeling. I want the viewer to "feel" their essence through my photography. I hope to share this passion through my images. 

I have been fortunate in that my work has been recognized throughout the world. I have exhibited in numerous art shows, galleries and museums at home and abroad. I enjoy helping people find that perfect image to complement their homes or offices. My images are for sale as signed, fine art prints. I offer various sizes, from small to large, to fit your needs. Prints are sold as loose paper prints using the finest archival materials. I will also work with you to provide custom metal prints, canvas giclees, or acrylic face mount prints in any size to fit your space.
