There is nothing more beautiful than the first light of dawn. It often heralds the day with a burst of radiant color that takes ones breath away. It is my favorite time of day, and sunrise frequently finds me in the woods, on a pond, or en route to one of the many beautiful places of VT or NH. Early morning is the best time for sighting wildlife, and photographing them in the warm glow of dawn often produces magical results.

Photography has always been a large part of my life. Growing up with a camera in my hand often allowed me the freedom and creative license to capture the beauty that surrounded me. Looking back on those pictures, I always seemed to favor capturing nature and “wildlife” (generally my dogs and cats) over posed family photos.

My twenty years as a Naval Officer afforded me the perfect opportunity to travel the globe and truly see the world through my camera lens. Whether it was a picture of a striking volcano in the Philippine Islands, or the incredibly beautiful fog-bound coast of Oregon, I was in constant pursuit of the “perfect picture”. Capturing sunrise or sunset from the deck of a ship on the open ocean is truly indescribable.

After my military retirement in 1990, I worked as the Nursing Director of the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Emergency Department for 13 years. I left my director position in 2004 to concentrate on nature photography full time. I started my own small business, and began marketing myself and my work throughout New Hampshire and Vermont. One of my key goals was to achieve state juried status with the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen, which I successfully accomplished in November 2004.

The connection that people make with my photography is always the best part of this new adventure. I so enjoy the conversations that my work stimulates, often as a result of how the photograph has touched the observer. I feel so fortunate that something that was my passionate avocation throughout my life has now become my livelihood; it nourishes my soul.

    I first became acquainted With Butch Lombardi and shortly after discovered Judy’s work through Butch. Have always greatly admired your skills and your respect and appreciation for wildlife and our environment. Positively beautiful work and stunning images Judy.
