Adam Romanowicz

Artist Statement:

Feel like you're there for the very first time, or for the first time all over again. That's the emotion I try to evoke in my images. The world is a vast and wonderful place, with a beautiful memory around every corner. I absolutely love to travel and explore new locations, from bustling urban jungles to lonely mountain peaks, from coral reefs to the space above the clouds. I'm driven by adventure and the desire to experience life to the fullest. To share this passion, I create images that the viewer can almost step into - photographs that give a sense of place, culture, and environment. While I mostly shoot travel and landscapes, other subjects such as macro and abstracts also round out my portfolio.

Biography:

Adam Romanowicz is an award winning travel, landscape, and nature photographer with penchant for adventure.

Born and raised in Chicago, IL, Adam always had a fascination with the artistic and abstract world. Childhood days were spent drawing, building models, and daydreaming of adventures in far off lands. While the real world grounds him in a career of engineering, daydreaming evolved into a passion for travel, outdoors, SCUBA diving, flying, and other exhilarating activities. These passions only reinforce Adam's love of photography, allowing him to show others the world through his eyes.

Shooting the world since 1997, Adam strives to create a strong sense of place in his travel related photographs. The idea is to make the viewer feel that they are literally standing in the image rather than just looking at it. Other than travel, photo interests include aviation, underwater, and macro. Adam is also getting into digital art, focusing on the surreal 3D world.

Adam's archival quality fine art prints can be purchased directly from this site (see most popular photos), or his online gallery at . Prints are available on paper, canvas, acrylic, and metal with a large variety of custom framing options. His images are also exhibited and sold in galleries and juried art shows around Chicagoland.

In addition to fine art prints, Adam offers a large collection of editorial and commercial stock photography. Stock images are available for license on this website. Published credits include: Oxford Dictionary of the Middle Ages, Harcourt School Publishers (educational books), Mondo Publishing (educational books & magazines), Newfoundland Gazette, various websites, calendars, cd covers, and store displays. His work was also used in set design for ABC's TV show Desperate Housewives, as well as on a TV spot in Sydney, AU.
