Presenter: Fran Bayless
Since 1990, Fran Bayless has pursued wildlife and nature photography as an artistic endeavor. During worldwide adventures in quest of nature’s treasures, Fran and her husband, Tom, have explored diverse wilderness areas. The natural beauty has touched and heightened Fran’s feelings, perceptions and concepts about the environment and the animals living within these areas. From the Arctic to the Antarctic, Fran has endeavored to share and communicate through her images the beauty, vastness, diversity, dramatic scenery and habitats of the animals and birds. Her goal is to draw the viewer into her photographs to experience a moment of wonder, involvement, inspiration, tranquility and beauty.
Her work has been accepted into many juried shows, published in Northern Ohio Live, Photographer’s Forum—The Bestof Photography, Leica View, Focus: A Casey Publication, and many travel brochures. She also lectures extensively on various aspects of her travels and the wildlife.
Fran’s images are on permanent display at Metro-General Hospital, Rainbow Hospital of University Hospitals, Zegrahm and Eco Expiditions and the Shaker Heights Library. Additionally, Leica Camera Inc. USA selected one of Fran’s Emperor Penguin photographs to be featured as their 2000 Holiday Season Card.
Fran’s collection of images can be viewed and purchased online at www.worldnaturephotos.net.
