Craig Douglas Gephart

Landscape, Nature, and Documentary Photography

 I am a self-taught photographer/digital artist based in Mechanicsburg, PA.  Since 2005, I have practiced a wide variety of photographic genres including landscape & nature, sports, and documentary photography.

My goal as a photographer is to capture the good in this world, be it in the beauty of nature or the faces of humankind.  In these times, when where we are regularly exposed to negativity that can wear us down and dull our senses, I seek to create images that highlight things that inspire and encourage me.  I share my images online in hopes that they might also have a positive impact on those who view them. It is my hope that my legacy as a photographer will be that someone was encouraged, and their life possibly changed for the better, after seeing one of my photos.

I post regularly on my  Facebook and Instagram feeds.  I am also on LinkedIn.  Please feel free to connect with me on any of those platforms or use the form on my Contact page on this site, even if it's just to say "Hello!"  I would love to hear from you. And, please, tell others about my work so they can enjoy it as well.

Searching for life's beauty to preserve and share it with others,

Craig Douglas Gephart, Photographer
