About Liesl Walsh:
I am a fine art photographer from the Tampa area of Florida. My portfolio includes landscape, architecture, and nature in Florida, Europe, and Asia. I enhance light, shadows, and color when editing to create powerful, dramatic, and peaceful images. Serenity and those "magic moments" that touch deep into the soul... my images show the world as 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. In college I majored in art, receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree, taught elementary art in Pennsylvania for 9 years, then moved to Florida where I now focus on photography. My favorite things to capture are historical and tropical places, pink flamingos, cows, gardens, and old buildings with charm. I like to give my photos a painterly look while others I'll give dramatic, bold lighting.
My photos have received many awards locally and internationally. 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 four images featured in a webinar by famous French photographer, Serge Ramelli, who has mentored me and inspired the artistry of my photography. You can read more about my journey as a photographer in my blog series here.
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, and breathtaking sunsets. 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 illustrated and designed the cover for my husband's book, "Vagabonds in France" by Michael A. Barry, a story about our unexpected adventure to Europe with no return date or home to come back to. We sailed across the Atlantic to Portugal (Funchal, Madeira), to Spain (Malaga, Cartagena, and Barcelona), then traveled to the French Riviera (Antibes, Nice, Eze, St. Paul de Vence), to Provence (Arles, Avignon), then a month in Paris. Readers say they feel they are right there with us on the journey and laugh out loud. 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!
