About the Photographer|
Randy McCune, a resident of northern Michigan, is attuned to the natural world, both by inclination and education. With a background in field biology (B.A.) and outdoor education (M.A.) and 30 years as a photographer, his love of the outdoors has become a profession and a lifestyle. His photographs are impassioned by what he feels, a sense of intimacy with the scene, and a closeness with the small and subtle beauties in nature that we often rush by in our hurry to be somewhere else. Photography for Randy requires meandering, scouting. . .finding the abandoned barn, the thick trillium grove, the derelict boat, and capturing the scene when the light and atmosphere are optimal. His work reveals a sensitivity, an eye for the delicate, like thin grasses against snow, as well as for the wide landscape--a flexible searching eye. His work has the power to startle us, awaken our perceptions, allow us to share in his awareness of natural beauty. We at the Diocese of Gaylord wish to thank Randy for allowing us to use his photographs on the home page and other locations within our web site. We hope that you will see in these pictures what we see throughout the year in northern Michigan ~ a land that has been gloriously adorned by the hand of God. Randy may be contacted at 7969 Pickerel Lake Road, Petoskey, MI 49770-9642. Views of Winter
