Here is a series of photographs from a current exhibition of artist Dale Chihuly’s work @nybotanicalgarden . I loved this exhibition by @chihulystudio. Seeing great art, inevitably leads to inspiration. I found myself captivated by the energy his pieces imbued on the natural flora and fauna. These images reflect that energy. Looking forward to seeing this exhibition at night! #chihuly #nybotanicalgarden #nyc #art #inspiration #newyork #glass #sculpture #multipleexposure #iphone

This photograph is part of my recent Tapestry series. The image was created shooting in camera multiple exposures of fleeting elements. They are moments in time that create a sense of place. Although these images have a spontaneous quality, I’m actually pre-visualizing the final layered image as I photograph. The end result recreates a sense of my personal experience in that moment. This image was taken on a recent trip to Lake Como in Northern Italy, where I explored the unique elements of the lake water surrounded by stunning mountains. #tapestry #italy #lakecomo #mountains #fall #stephenwilkes #photography #nature #fall #travel #water #moments #incamera

A lake is a place for reflection. The stunning mountains that frame this seemingly endless lake, are constantly changing ones impressions of scale. This mirrored view is from within Villa Carlotta overlooking Lake Como, Italy. #lakecomo #water #italy #reflection #villacarlotta #iphoneonly

Traveling through Africa this past July, I was drawn to the light one evening as we drove to Nairobi. The warm late afternoon light enhanced the captivating landscape, especially the green wall of this hotel and pub. This image is part of my “Drive By” series, photographs of fleeting moments taken while traveling in a moving car. #africa #nairobi #sunset #light #color #photography #kenya #stephenwilkes #stephenwilkesphotography #pub #africanamazing #drivebyphoto #moment

A sunset boat ride is a great way to soak in this amazing fall weather. A cruise on the open water, is a sure way to relax and recharge with friends and family. I love watching the reflections in the water as we cruise the Long Island Sound, peacefully and hypnotically the images come and go. I hope everyone gets a chance to get outside and enjoy this beautiful fall. #boat #sunsetcruise #fall #feelslikesummer #longislandsound #water #iphone #ct #conneticut #beauty #reflections #stephenwilkes #stephenwilkesphotography

With the first day of fall upon us, summer is still trying to hold on. The weather on the East Coast is warm and beautiful, with record days above 80 degrees. I shot this just 5 miles from my studio, and I always enjoy capturing moments that are close to home. #fall #compobeach #westport #ct #drone #dji #sunset #beauty #moments #home #stillsummer #water #beach #nature #outside #eastcoast

On this last day of summer, I am reminded of this past season of inspiring travel and amazing adventures. I had the opportunity to be in some of the most beautiful places and for that I am grateful. This photograph was taken in Israel in Tel Aviv at sunset, during a workshop I was teaching. The joys of travel and sharing these adventures with friends and family is what drives my creative process. I am looking forward to the fall and I can’t wait to see what moments happen in front of my lens. #Israel #deadsea #travel #lastdayofsummer #summer #photography #inspire #sunset

Over the last 2 years I have had the opportunity to shoot and create more than 14 new ‘Day to Night photographs. It was an amazing experience, capturing the passage of time in these iconic locations. It’s a thrill to see many of the large prints hanging at @brycewolkowitz Gallery. I hope you all have a chance to stop by and see the work. The exhibition runs through November 11.

Today we started to hang the large prints for my upcoming “Day to Night” exhibition @brycewolkowitz. One of the images that immediately caught everyone’s attention is Detian Falls in Guangxi, China. The Falls sit on the border of Vietnam and China. It’s a spectacular site, and I felt so fortunate to be able to photograph there. “Day to Night” opens this Thursday September 14, from 6-8pm @brycewolkowitz in NYC. Show will run through November 11, I hope to see you there. #daytonight #detianfalls #china #vietnam #waterfall #gallery #fineart #photography #nyc

I saw a picture of this place 2 years ago, and thought someone had retouched the Guilin Mountains into a waterfall!  After three plane rides and a five hour drive in the dark, we finally reached our destination, and it’s a REAL place! This Loupe view should hopefully trigger your curiosity. Stay tuned, as we will reveal the full image this week.  This photograph along with 13 brand new works will be opening this Thursday night 6-8pm September 14, @brycewolkowitz gallery. I hope you can join us.

I’m simply an obsessed collector of moments that tell stories; these are what drive my passion to create my Day to Night photographs.  Sharing these moments is the fun part of the process. I hope this high resolution loupe view helps give you a sense of the details that play a huge part within these photographs. Stay tuned, as tomorrow I will release the full photograph of this amazing event. With less than a week away, I hope you can join me @brycewolkowitz gallery on Thursday night September 14th, opening night of my newest Day to Night images.

On Thursday September 14 @brycewolkowitz in NYC will be exhibiting my newest Day to Night photographs. For this show, I travelled to ten countries in search of the most captivating places and subjects: the historic horse race through the Piazza del Campo in Siena, pods of orcas in Robson Bight off the Vancouver Island bay. Additionally, I photographed the Kumbh Mela festival in India during the hottest time of year as well as the majestic Ban Gioc-Detain Falls at the border between Vietnam and China. Pictured here is a detail of one of my newest images, can you guess which one this may be? More to follow in the days ahead, stay tuned. #daytonight #photography #fineart #fineartphotography #nycgallery

I’m excited to share my 360 video of the total eclipse, filmed from the top of @grandtargheeresort in the Tetons. It’s just been published by @time online. Please click the link in my bio, and MAKE SURE when viewing, use the You Tube app to get the FULL 360 experience. For your computer, please view using Firefox or Google Chrome. Scroll around and explore, watch the shadow of the moon move across the western Teton valley. Listen to the sounds of joy and excitement once totality is reached. 360 shares the experience in the most dramatic way… every time I watch this it brings the entire experience back to life… Enjoy! #360video #eclipse2017 #tetons #grandtarghee #totality #nature #wyoming

Day turns into Night. Seeing our first solar eclipse in totality was an extraordinary visual experience. We were so fortunate to view the Eclipse from the top of @grandtargheeresort . The epic view of the Tetons with the eclipse above, all while watching the shadow of the moon as it traveled across the valley from the west. The low midday clouds suddenly turned the color of sunset peach, day turned to night, and a cold evening chill enveloped us. It was as if our entire concept of time had become compressed, "real time" felt like hyper time lapse . Stay tuned...as I will be posting a 360 video which captures this magic in its entirety, along with a big picture.

Another image from my recent BI trip. I made this photograph by shooting through a plastic curtain, which gave this photograph a painterly quality. The color and grain reminded me of an early color photographic process called autochrome. #blockisland #impressionism #autochrome #seaside #rowing #landscape #iphoneonly
