I'll go a little different direction for this week's featured photographer... as in, way out west. I happened upon West Texas Photo a few weeks ago and invited photographer Sean Patty to be seen on this side of the Lone Star State...
A quick browse through the galleries is all it takes to see that Sean likes beautiful western landscapes. No surprise then that a love of the outdoors has inspired Sean's photography obsession.
You can also see that Sean spends time processing some of his images for a stylized, almost HDR look. He said that there isn't one particular look he goes for, but rather a look that he thinks suits each image.
Sean's images of the Alamo raised my curiosity ... clearly this is not in San Antonio. It is a good example of making the most of your photographic opportunities when you can.
While Sean's inspiration may come from the likes of Ansel Adams and other nature photography greats, he also ventures in to many other areas of photography. Here are a few other clips from his site that caught my eye. I particularly like the Air Power gallery.
Sean also works for commercial clients around his home base in the Midland area.
Last thing... Sean is a Canon shooter, and he carries a versatile set of lenses for treks into the backcountry...
