Woody Walters has become one of the nation’s premier artists. 
Walters’ photographs are a celebration of renewal and change.  In his latest portfolios Walters has pushed the boundary of photography to new and exciting limits allowing him to give a visual testimony in strikingly complex imagery. During a career that spans decades, Walters evolved from a commercial
photographer and fine art black and white landscapes artist to one of the newest Christian artists. 

 

His client list includes Walt Disney World, Blockbuster Video, Ilford Photo, Mamiya Camera, Calumet, and Burger King. His black and white landscapes are reminiscent of Ansel Adams and depict the beauty of nature’s diversity..

In 1994 his distinctive photographs of Florida were published by the University of Florida Press in a book entitled, “Visions of Florida.”  The inspiration for “Reflections
of Christ” came from a very spiritual place within his heart. “After viewing the many negative portrayals of Christ that are found in art today, I felt compelled to take a positive approach to the depiction of Christ. With the experiments in combined imagery this work is now a reality.”  Through his diverse portfolio subjects, Walters’s work is sought after and appeals to a very wide audience. Walters’ works appear in museums and galleries
throughout the world, including Ansel Adams private collection, the Tampa Museum of Art, the Yergeau-Musee International d’Art in Canada, the Milwaukee Art Museum, the Hoyt Institute of Art, the Pensacola Museum, the Madison Museum of Art, a private collection at the Vatican in Rome, and is featured in many international tours with the United States Embassy.  Walters has been in the top five photographers in Iowa eight times. He has also received the Top Heart of America Photographer five times, a record in the state of Iowa. He received his Masters and Craftsman Degrees from PPA in July 2003. Nineteen images were chosen for the prestigious loan collection and he received the coveted Medlar Award for the top portrait at the April 2000 affiliated competition.  In 2005 he received the Imaging Excellence Award from Professional Photographers of America.  To date Walters has collected an astounding eight Kodak Gallery Awards and three Fuji Masterpiece Awards. He received three perfect scores in print competition for his images “My Ex Wife,” “Born in the USA,” and “Men of Freedom.” He’s been published in Professional Photographer, Photoshop User, Shutterbug, and Photographer Forum. Walters contributes to many business and industry magazines on a regular basis and his images can be found in museums and galleries worldwide. He teaches across the country offering photographic workshops for beginners to the very advanced professional.  His self-published online training “Inside Woody’s World” and “Learn Photoshop with Woody Walters.” Has reached thousands of photographers who are looking to elevate their skill level to a higher standard.  

 

When he is not teaching he is doing what he loves most, creating images and working with his wife Minda in their educational and product website, woodywaltersdigitalphotocandy.com.  You can see more of Woody’s Work at woodywalters.com.
