Roy Sullivan Photography


Print 1: Fall Foliage, Ramsey Prong, Great Smoky Mountains National Park 

"This photo was taken in the Fall in the Greenbrier area of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park on the Ramsey Prong, while I was precariously balanced on a boulder in the middle of the river. The range of tones came from the reds, yellows and greens of Fall".

"I especially enjoy finding photographic subjects that most people might never pay attention to. This photo was made at the end of a quiet walkway just off Highway 441."

 Print 3: Pigeon River Cascades at Sunrise, GSMNP

"This image is of Ramsey Prong from the Greenbrier section of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It was taken on a misty morning, and reflects the ethereal feel that I experienced while standing beside the river."
Roy Sullivan resides in Alabama and maintains a home just outside Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Roy has been involved with photography for more than 20 years, but a workshop six years ago in the Smokies lit the flame of his passion for good. Roy works with a large format, 4x5 Canham metal field camera and works exclusively in black and white. He attended a class in black and white photography six years ago based on the theory that understanding black and white made one a better color photographer. However, Roy explains that halfway through the class he was a convert and has never returned to color photography. Regarding his choice of subjects, Roy explains, "I have a close friend who I asked to recommend reading material to improve my photography. He handed me a book and told me to read it completely before making any judgment as to its being appropriate for photography. The book was Zen and the Art of Archery. It was not until half way through the book that I realized that he was right. I read it at least once a year as a refresher. The basic tone of the book is to trust your senses and emotions. You will know if your subject has meaning for you when you see it on the ground glass. If it does not affect your emotions, you probably should not release the shutter."
