Pam DeCamp is an award winning professional photographer from Wheelersburg, Ohio. Her 30+ years of photography experience has ranged from photojournalism, sports, performing arts, fine art, to macro and wildlife.
Pam’s transition to photographing wildlife has evolved during her winter stays in Florida as a “snowbird.” Her persistence and patience in finding the habitats and visiting frequently has yielded many fine images of the native and migrating water birds.
Her fine art photography has been on display in several regional as well as statewide museums and she has had images on display in the Ohio Governor’s Office.
She hosts workshops in her studio and gives presentations to area camera clubs. She is the past president of the Ohio Valley Camera Club in Huntington, West Virginia and assists in the coordination of meetings for the TriState Camera Club in Ashland, Kentucky.
Pam’s passion is travel. She enjoys planning trips with friends to various places across the country and internationally. She has traveled to all 50 states, nine countries, and three continents.
In her down time, she edits and organizes her photographs, and spends quality time with her two dogs, Sampson (Sam) and Ruby, and her three cats, Angel, Sebastian, and Simon. In the warmer months you may find her out on the backroads in her 1990 Mazda Miata MX5. She is also an aspiring author, and has begun writing her first book about birding in Florida.
I approach photography as an opportunity to experience new places and to share those images with my viewers. I take the time to compose and capture the scene as I see it. There are times I plan my images ahead of time. I go to the location with the visual imagery and look for the scene, the lighting, and choose my moment to permanently record the beauty of the location.
When processing the images I allow my creative imagination take control. I may paint the photograph or give it other enhancements to make it a fine art print, a one of a kind image. I consider myself an experimentalist in my approach. I enjoy working with different mediums and techniques such as infrared. Having a tradition film background, I still use my vintage cameras to photograph “old style.”
After switching to digital imagery in 2008, it became apparent to me, with computer technology, creating a photographic image had endless possibilities. I have made steady progress in the artistic community, by receiving many awards, having my work on display in prominent locations, and being featured in publications.
My goal is to bring the places I visit to the viewer so they can experience location in a whole new way.
