About Kelly Walkotten
Kelly combines her passions of photography and writing to bring the wonders of nature to others. Through her travels, she captures images for publication. Then, through research, writing, and presentation, she brings nature to an audience and teaches them about the habitat and behavior of unique creatures from around the world. She is an avid scuba diver, whose images, articles, and blogs have brought the undersea world to readers of the PSA Journal and Fem Worldview.com. These publications have featured articles by Kelly that include photos from diving the Caribbean, the Pacific, and Indo-Pacific. Her favorite destination is Indonesia, where she has spent fourteen weeks above and below the sea. She has been published in many other print and web publications. Through her extensive use and familiarity with photo editing software, she has developed lessons and enjoys teaching Adobe Suite products of Photoshop, Elements and Lightroom. Kelly lives in the greater Grand Rapids area and her images have been exhibited in many venues around West Michigan including ArtPrize and Festival of the Arts.
About Steven Scherbinski
Living in West Michigan, with easy access to the lakeshore, urban areas and open spaces tuned Steven Scherbinski’s eye to a large range of subjects. His artistic viewpoint focuses on the things that most people pass by. The small or overlooked but beautiful things. He also captures the gorgeous light that falls in the West Michigan landscape. Scherbinski is a diversified photographer using both a modern digital camera as well as a 50 year old film camera. He also prints his own photographic prints. Using historical processes, some 100+ years old, the artist finds it gives the photographs a unique, one-of-a-kind essence. For older processes, such as Cyanotypes, Van Dyke Brown and Platinum, he uses fine art papers and hand coats them, ensuring that each one is different from the previous print. Steven Scherbinski exhibits his work in the Saugatuck Artists Collective at 403 Water St., Saugatuck, MI
