I would say I have always been the creative sort. Even as a child, I spent much of my time doodling pictures of just about anything that interested me. Fast forward a few decades. I am a little older, and maybe a little wiser, but still have the child-like joy of creating something wonderfully expressive from little or nothing—though not much of it is done using crayons anymore. I feel I have created an avenue by which not only images, but also emotions and ideas can be shared by the viewer. What I create is a direct result of the passion I have for what I do.
Many of the images in my photostream are 100% free for download via a Creative Commons license. Though not required, I ask only one thing: please provide attribution. All I request is a simple mention of my name, the image name, image link, or even just a link to my Flickr Photostream (www.flickr.com/photos/earlwilkersonphotography).
Places You Can Purchase My Work:
One of my favorite quotes on photography:
An amateur photographer was invited to dinner with friends, and he took along a few pictures to show to them. The hostess looked at the photos and commented, “These are very good! You must have a good camera." The photographer didn't make any comment, but as he was leaving to go home, he said, "That was a really delicious meal! You must have some very good pots."
