If anyone is in or near Knoxville, Tennessee in July please consider stopping by Ijams Nature Center and take a look at some of my photos.  I'll be showcasing native fishes from Tennessee and the southeast plus a few scenic shots of underwaterscapes.

The vast majority of us will not have the opportunity to visit Ijams.

 

Can you please post here all the photos you are showing?  Include pricing / shipping and perhaps you will sell a few to NANFA Forum Members.

It is always satisfying to place a SOLD sticker.

:)

 

This would also be nice for an upcoming issue of American Currents.

 

I am eager to see your images.

 

Congratulations on the exhibit.

No, there are 36 images and I don't have the time to resize and post them, but I do have a website:  https://brycegibson1...cegibsonuwphoto which has a few that are in the show and others that aren't.  What I'm showing are framed 8"x10" prints with a white mat and 1" black, wood frame.  I'm selling them for $125.00 each, a portion of which goes to support Ijams Nature Center.

Those are VERY nice! I think I was in the water (doing something much less productive/artistic) with you for a few of those.

Thanks Bryce. Really great stuff there, and fun to look through. I love fish photos, but I liked your landscape and/or habitat photos just as much.

I wish there were more to see.  Although I work strictly in analog B&W, I certainly appreciate the artistry in Bryce's photos.  Very high caliber work.

This one's not in the exhibit, but I thought you might like to see it anyway.  Matt DLV, this one's for you fish and habitat.

I really like that one. It does a good job of showing how much brighter they are than everything else in the stream when the light hits them right. Such a cool fish. Im glad you came away with some nice images despite your disappointment with the low success rate.

That is really neat! They must really be something to see in life. Thanks Bryce.

 

Is it a 1 in 1000 shot that truly captures that bright blue?

That is a fantastic shot, too, Bryce!

How easy an access is it to get to Ijams? Will be passing through Knoxville on our way from SC to MI next month. At that point we may be ready for a quick break. Would love to see your exhibit if there isn't too much (cue Jimi) "crosstown traffic".

I suppose I could further investigate the website for that intel, but I tend to get sidetracked doing such things and it's just easier to ask here if it's an easy sidetrip to do with the wife and girls in the midst of a long driving day... :)

MDV, no if you get them in the right light, they are an indescribable blue, the photo doesn't do him justice.  At the wrong angle they wash out to a bluish silver.

 

MK, it is kind of off the beaten path, but approaching from 40 east is not too bad.

 

Ijams Nature Center is located at 2915 Island Home Avenue, Knoxville, Tennessee, 37920, approximately three miles from downtown Knoxville.
