Hello, I’m glad you’re here. Let me tell you a little about myself.
My name is Marcy Ford and I am a Nature Photographer, Artist, Writer and all around lover of all things in the natural world. From the tiniest shell on the beach, to the myriad colors, textures and patterns of flowers, birds, insects, water and rocks all the way up to wide open vistas of the mountains, oceans, desert…oh my gosh, I just love it all. I am in constant awe of the beauty of our planet.
There have been many influences on my art including my upbringing by nature loving parents, through my formal education and the variety of occupations I’ve held over the years. Also very important to my career as a photographer has been living in such a beautiful place as Cape Cod with my husband, a Professional Arborist and scuba diver and my favorite hiking partner. I love to travel and discover new landscapes with all the exciting things that can be found and photographed there.
I am a regular contributor to a number of regional magazines, photographing and sometimes writing for a variety of articles related to the local flora and fauna of Cape Cod. I have been featured in a handful of solo gallery shows and have sold prints and cards locally. You’ll find many different types of photography throughout my gallery as I enjoy experimenting based on the subject matter, the lighting and the overall feeling I am trying to capture but also thoughtful of the intended purpose, whether fine art or editorial.
My mission is to spread joy, beauty and kindness and inspire a respect for and connection to Mother Nature. I am passionate about capturing the wonder and artistry that is found in nature and presenting it in a way that intrigues, educates, illustrates a story or evokes emotion.
I'm happy you are here and hope you enjoy your visit.
