Rich Herrmann is a nature photographer based in Mount Vernon, Iowa.
Nature photography has a special place in my heart since it may take a lifetime to fully understand the balances, forces, changes, inner workings, and power of Nature. It's an honor and challenge to interpret and represent the natural world through a lens, to share it with others, and to understand its powerful ability to transform and change.
I use a variety of techniques to create digital and film images. . . . at times using High Dynamic Range techniques if the scene has high contrast, or blending exposure-bracketed photos to layer the best of each one . . . but every once in a while, magic will happen and one shot captures the essence of a scene. In those moments, light is usually the single most influential element, and it becomes a wonderful experience that is hopefully conveyed to the viewer.
My photography has been described as portraying nature in an honest, dramatic, and beautiful way, and I look forward to sharing it with you!
