Thank you for taking time to visit Walt Baker Photography on Fine Art America. Take your time and stay for a while. I hope I have some photos here that you enjoy. You'll see that most of what I enjoy shooting is outdoor, or landscape photography. While I don't call myself a professional photographer, I have been at it since my high school and college days. Since I remember the hours in the darkroom I guess that means I've been at this a while. Today's photography amazes me. Technology has really made it possible for everyone to get involved.
I imagine I'm a lot like many photo enthusiasts you might find on the web these days. Most of us have real jobs that keep us going while we look for opportunities to do what we love best; taking cool pictures of the places, people and things that catch our eye along the way. I hope one day soon I can enjoy it full time. If that day ever comes, I hope I'm able to make the most of it. If it doesn't, I hope it remains as fun and rewarding as it is today.
Well, since you're here, let me tell you a couple of things about myself. I was born in Baltimore, MD and was raised in a small bayside town called Mayo, just south of Annapolis in Anne Arundel County, MD. It didn't take me too long to figure out how lucky I was to live in such a lovely place. Mayo, if you're looking on a map, is one of several peninsulas along the shores of the Chesapeake Bay. No matter where you go in any direction, you are never far from the water, and all of the great things that come with it. For me, it seemed like the perfect blend of history, nature and small town charm rolled into one.
Today, I live in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, one of the "boroughs" of Charleston. Charleston, SC needs very little introduction. It is quite simply one of the most charming and beautiful places you will ever visit. In many ways, I feel as though I've come home to a very familiar place. Charleston's harbor and waterways, combined with her history and natural beauty are reminiscent of my life in Annapolis. As an avid photo enthusiast, I am truly doing all I can to soak up the beauty while capturing some great images. I hope you find that my photos capture a portion of that for you. You'll also find that my work is not limited to the Carolinas. Any chance I get to travel to a new place, I hope to bring home some favorite images. Thanks for visiting Walt Baker Photography!
