Deborah Scannell partner gallery
Asheville based photographer, Deborah Scannell, focuses her talent on capturing Mother Nature's splendor, season after season, along the Appalachian Mountains, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, State Parks, Coastal Regions, and abroad. Deborah's professional photographic journey began in 2010 when she retired from a successful 23-year career as an ASID and NCIDQ-credentialed interior designer in the kitchen and bath industry.
"Photography is the intersection of composition, light, and timing. Sometimes it is the absence of light and what is NOT in the image that makes the image. Knowing what to leave out could be as important as what to include. The absence of light is as important as light itself, as this is what gives shape and form to the subject of your image. Light cannot exist without darkness, and it’s that contrast that I work with. Revealing the gradients between light and dark is what we, as photographers, do. It is our artist's pallet.”
