Gary Wagner’s love of the photographic image and craft began when he became the photographer for his high school newspaper in Kokomo, Indiana. He continued his education at Indiana University, in Bloomington eventually moving to Santa Barbara, California, to attend Brooks Institute of Photography. While at Brooks, Gary increased his artistic and theoretical knowledge of photography and the historical

significance of the printed image. Earning a Master’s Degree in Photography from Brooks Institute, with the publication of his work on historical carbon printing, gave Gary a continued appreciation and passion for his artistic craft. 

 

His photographic images have been recognized by exhibitions in many galleries, published in Lenswork magazine, Outdoor Photographer magazine and Digital Photographer UK magazine among others. Having won numerous awards including Best of Show for two years at the Sacramento Fine Art Center, accepted into the California State Fair Fine Art Show and received awards 7 years annually in Black and White magazine. The most recent achievement was the publication of his book, “Digital Black and White Landscape Photography, Fine Art Techniques from Camera to Print” by Amherst Media. Gary is also the author of three self-published books: Sierra Nevada Mountains, Sierra Mountain Wilderness, and Redwood Coast: Sea and Land. 

 

Gary’s professional career spans more than three decades and includes, fine art, portrait, and commercial photography. His knowledge, expertise, and enthusiasm for the photographic image enabled him to

successfully teach theory and technique at the college level and seminars in Europe on the English country landscape. Fluent in all film formats, from 35mm to 8x10, Gary has embraced the digital image and the ever-changing environment of photography in the current technological age. Exploring

photography using digital imagery offers a myriad of possibilities. Refining technique with the interplay of artistic expression fascinates and challenges Gary to continue his exploration of the photographic

image and his study of the land and its natural elements and beauty.

 

For the past 25 years, Gary has made his home in Northern California.
