Fine Art Nature Photography

ABOUT KORAL MARTIN

Koral Martin is a Fine Art Nature Photographer.  She loves to travel around the country and capture the wondrous world around us including Landscapes, waterfalls, wildlife, and macros of florals and natures abstracts.

“Nature has always been a draw to me, it has an inherent beauty that I learned to appreciate at a very young age.  My family’s vacations were camping, hiking and fishing all around Kentucky and down into Tennessee.  My parents loved the great outdoors and passed on that love to me and through the years of my life, I have always found myself gravitating to nature at every opportunity.  To me, nature possesses  an unending variety of beauty and is Koral Martin King Riverever changing; it offers wonderful surprises at every look, every step, along every path, and in every corner and crevice. With a camera in my hand, I see things I would possibly never see other wise.  I love to seek out those hidden beauties as I might just be walking  a short distance down a path, along a stream, or through a woods, examining at length everything from lichen and algae growing on a rotted log to pebbles lining a brook, unique reflections in the water,  or I am hiking the mountains of places like Colorado seeing the glorious vistas, thunderous waterfalls, or glacial lakes it has to offer.  I love to hike  but even more I love to capture these images and share them with all of you to bring that story,  that emotion, that sense of awe, that sense of  peace and calm, that I have gotten  to experience when I step out into the wondrous world of nature around us.  Join me as I hike across the United States and see through my eyes the beauty all around us.

In the last dozen years, as digital photography capabilities have advanced, I’ve been able to combine my love of computers and my technical knowledge with my photography. In my photography I utilize Canon’s professional line of digital cameras and lenses and Epson’s professional printers. I’m experienced in all aspects of digital photography, including digital capture, digital darkroom processing, color management, printing, and presentation of fine-art prints, which I do both for myself and for other area artists. I’m also an experienced web developer and graphic designer and the owner of Koka Art Gallery, where I sell my photographic artwork and the artwork of about thirty other artists. I sell my works, too, at art shows around the country and several galleries and have had several solo shows. I’m a member of the Joplin Regional Artists Coalition, Kansas City Artist Coaliton, North American Nature Photography Association, The Society for the Arts in Healthcare, The Center for Health Design, Joplin Missouri’s Spiva Center for the Arts, and Carthage’s Art Central. I feel strongly that there is healing in the beauty of nature, and I’m glad to be able, through my photography, to share that healing attribute with the patients, their families and staff in healthcare centers around the country as well as individual’s homes and businesses.”   –Koral
