James K. Papp Photography Gallery


“My art is inspired by the mystery and awe I experience while being with Nature. For me, the camera is a magical portal to connect more deeply with the world. At age ten my parents gifted me with a Kodak Instamatic X-15 point and shoot camera and instantly I loved making pictures. Today my images are created with high-resolution Sony digital mirror-less cameras, and the thrill of documenting the natural beauty of our world is as exciting as ever for me. Thank you very much for viewing my gallery.”
