News - Introduction: 1-20-2010

My name is Mark Nault, and I live in Edmond, Oklahoma with my beautiful wife and partner Carol and our Golden Retriever, Dakota.  We have one son in the Army who is assigned to the 101st Airborne Division at Fort Campbell, Kentucky.  Besides my family, there is nothing I love more than traveling the back roads of this land taking photographs.  My photography is truly a labor of love and this website is my gallery. 

My photography is driven by a passion for nature and my desire to share this passion with others; especially those who cannot enjoy it in person.  I hope to use this website as a vehicle to help others develop their own passion for the natural world.   

I am self-taught beginning as a teenager in the mid-1970s.  In 1979, I entered the Air Force and served for 23 years at bases in the U.S. and overseas.  I was very lucky -  I enjoyed a tremendous variety of environments in which to develop my technical and artistic skills.  From the Louisiana swamps to the South Dakota Badlands, I was constantly learning new ways to capture those fleeting moments of light.  Additionally, my job as a technician provided daily opportunities to photograph various aviation subjects. 

My interest in photography is really an infatuation with light.  It's amazing to witness the way light changes the landscape through the day.   From sunrise to sunset; through twilight and through the night.  I never get tired of working the interaction between the land, sky, and light.  To me, Ansel Adams summed it up best when he said "photography is painting with light."

Ansel Adams, Galen Rowell,  and Tony Sweet are the photographers who continue to inspire and educate  me.  Moose Peterson also serves as a tremendous influence.  I continue to read and study their books and websites.   It amazes me how much material the Ansel Adams Trust continues to find and publish.  

Robert Trawick is a local photographer who is responsible for getting me to "stick my toe in the water" by going public with my work.  It isn't just me he has inspired - Robert has done a lot for local artists by advocating participation in our arts councils and by ensuring both artists and regional artistic venues get connected.   My greatest personal influences are my wife Carol and my brother Mike.  Both have made me realize that I may be blessed with a craft that can be shared with others.

This website is a work in progress.  I ask that you bear with us as we work to make it more informative and easier to use.  We welcome and appreciate your ideas and comments.  This is a website built by us with the intent of sharing my vision with you.   Thanks!
