art251 showcases new and recent images by Sean Fitzgerald, a Dallas based professional photographer with a growing local and national following.
While practicing a successful career in law Fitzgerald bought a camera and began to take pictures. The right side of his brain started to wake up. He was hooked.
Nowadays Fitzgerald?s photographic range is broad and deep. He pursues images that are simple, graphic, colorful, evocative, surreal. His passion is for images that suggest the essence of the subject and evoke different reactions in people. While his subjects are widely varied, he finds himself repeatedly drawn to nature and wildlife and the impact of man on both.
Fitzgerald?s work is in private and corporate collections. His images are used by interior designers and commercial art buyers. He shoots for magazines, calendars and commercial clients, and teaches photography and Photoshop.
We invite you to come and discover the world ? a beautiful and fragile place ? as seen through the eyes of Sean Fitzgerald.
