Why I create nature and abstract fine art photography.

My name is Thomas Watkins and I'm from Phoenix, AZ. I specialize in nature and abstract photography. My work often showcases the beauty and serenity of the natural world, which can be a great source of comfort and respite from everyday stresses.

I believe that viewing art, especially nature and abstract photography, can have a positive impact on our mental health. Whether it's the calming vibes of a desert sunset or the majesty of a distant mountain, experiencing Nature through art can promote feelings of joy and gratitude - and that's something I strive to capture in my work.

My education began in the traditional wet darkroom of Glendale Community College where I learned to use advanced techniques to create beautifully toned, composed and archival fine art prints. I later transferred that knowledge into my digital workflow where I have even more control over the creation of my art.
