“This image has been 3 attempts and 2 years in making. First attempt I missed the north star. The 2nd attempt the moon was so bright that it was almost unbearable to look at.”
Michael Wicks, local and international freelance photographer, is known for capturing under-water as well as land and journalistic images. He has been featured in National Wildlife Federation’s publications as well as Underwater Photo Magazine based in London and the USATravelMagazine.com site. His work has been used by IFAW in presentations to Congress for their Tails for Whales Campaign. There have always been rules, and then there have always been reasons to break those rules. Every medium, every art form begins with a set of rules. Rules do change with time and culture but they tend to only change when there are driving factors or motives that create and control these rules. But then there are people or movements that push, bend and when necessary break those rules. Geddes, Adams and Leibovitz have all pushed their art to the point of making the new norm from the obscure or inane.
