DENNIS GOODMAN

About the Artist: DENNIS GOODMAN

I grew up in St. Paul, Minnesota and always loved being outdoors. Nature’s beauty has always amazed me. I moved to Naples in 1985 and started taking pictures. I began to explore the Everglades years later and the beautiful scenery all around Naples spoke to me. I realized that I had tremendous passion for preserving my visions through photography.

After owning my own business for several years, I decided to change my career and pursue my dream which is photography. With my wife and two daughters supporting this decision, I decided to take a leap of faith and pursue it.

Most of my photography comes from the Florida Everglades. I enjoy taking the day and exploring the vast swamp land hunting for that perfect shot. The connection I have when I am in the Everglades is indescribable. There is endless array of wildlife including birds, alligators, snakes, foliage and much more that my eye sees something different on each adventure. My inspiration comes from the beauty in nature and it has become spiritual expedition as well.

My goal as a photographer is to showcase the beauty and wonders of God’s amazing creations. Touching the emotions of another and have them experience the photograph as if they were taking the picture is my focus. The ever changing light and the details of the swamp are captured in this hidden world we often do not see or experience. The natural scenery represented in my photos is the perfect beauty of nature as God created it.

My journey to follow my passion and to follow the plan that God has put forth for me is what is really important in my life and my family’s life. Life is too short not too be enjoying and living to the fullest and truly making a difference in other people’s lives. I hope to inspire others to follow their passion and to take the risk to do what they truly enjoy.

Through my photography I hope people realize how important it is to preserve our wetlands and the Everglades as God intended for future generations to come.
