About Liesl Walsh:
I am a fine art photographer from the Tampa area of Florida. My portfolio includes landscape, architecture, nature, and wildlife photography of Florida and Europe. I enhance light, shadows, and color when editing to create powerful, dramatic, and peaceful images. Serenity, overwhelming beauty, and magic moments that touch the soul... my images show the world is a beautiful place to live and a wonderful place to explore.
Art and photography have always been my passion. Drawing, painting, and colors excite me. After teaching art in Pennsylvania, I moved to Florida and focused on photography. I like to give some of my photos a painterly look; others will have dramatic lighting. I often do a black and white version of my color photos.
I love exploring Florida to find beautiful tropical scenes. I’ve walked through cypress swamps, lush tropical gardens, parks, beaches, busy tourist areas, and quiet dirt trails through the countryside. I’ve photographed ponds filled with thousands of water lilies, huge live oak trees with Spanish moss dangling from their branches, colorful exotic plants, breathtaking sunsets, pink flamingos, and buildings with historical charm. I’ve captured Florida scenes from tourist destinations, historical places, farms, and nature preserves that show the “Old Florida” people love so much. I’ve also captured scenes from Europe and Asia.
I am excited to announce the release of my husband's book, "Vagabonds in France", (pen name Michael A. Barry), which is a lighthearted book about our 9 week journey across the Atlantic to Portugal (Funchal, Madeira), to Spain (Malaga, Cartagena, and Barcelona), to the Côte d'Azur in the south of France (Antibes, Nice, Eze, St. Paul de Vence), to Provence (Arles, Avignon), then a month in Paris. We put all our stuff in storage and left with no return date or home to come back to. Readers say they feel they are right there with us on the journey and laugh out loud. I designed the cover and illustrated the book with 75 photographs. The book is available on Amazon in both paperback and Kindle: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B01NCUNSEK. You can see many images of this journey in my portfolio, with more to come!
My photos have received many awards at local competitions on both the east and west coasts of Florida and online in international competitions. I have had photos displayed at the King Center Gallery at Brevard College and at the Vero Beach Museum of Art. My photos have been published in the Vero Beach Magazine, on the cover of Florida Currents magazine, and in my husband's book, "Vagabonds in France" by Michael A. Barry. I have also had images featured in a webinar by famous French photographer, Serge Ramelli, who has taught me a lot and inspired the artistry of my photography. You can see the webinar here: Serge Ramelli YouTube Video "Ask Serge!".
