CAPTURING MOMENTS IN TIME: A LIFE OF BEAUTY SURROUNDS US.
PHOTOGRAPHER: CHRIS TARPENING



My passion is nature. I love being out and about and capturing the memories of a beautiful moment in time. They say a picture tells a thousand words. I believe a capture of a moment tells a memory of beauty which is often missed by the many in the fast paced parts of this planet. While everyone is at work from sun-up to sun-down some of the beautiful things happen in that time frame.
By day I'm a News Photographer Capturing events as they happen and telling the stories of impact. But when I am out and about I like to take in the surroundings and see the nature in everything. When the sun rises and when the sun sets these I love to see what mother nature has in store. Usually if there are clouds about where I'm living in the desert at Sunset or Sunrise there is surely to be a spectacular blend of colors. Sometimes depending the time of year the color schemes change which is fascinating. So I capture my photos because I believe it's a beautiful moment in time.
I have been behind a camera in one way or another since my childhood days but have been professionally behind the lens for about 15 years. There is still a lot I'm learning on a daily basis but just love being able to capture the moments and share.
Thank you for stopping by and looking at my work. Please comment I'm always looking for constructive criticism or others thoughts on what they see. Everyone's eyes are different.
I just love what there is to see on this planet of ours and you'll find I'm more into landscapes but as I get better and learn from as many as I can I hope to develop into Photography everyone enjoys to have on their walls.
