Bobby Burton is a self-described "normal guy" that lives in Arkansas. On the weekends I enjoy heading outdoors to visit new places around the state. I grew up in Memphis playing sports, and moved to Arkansas during 2002. At some point in 2011 I started to play with a camera my mother gave me. With plenty of messed up photos to show for it, I finally admitted that I did not know how to take a photo. One four-week class made sense of all the buttons and settings.
Since then I have narrowed my focus down to primarily landscape photography. There is a peace that comes along with being outside that I cannot adequately express in words. I love to shoot with people who enjoy being outdoors and respect nature. I love capturing the beauty in what some call ordinary.
My passion is finding a perspective most won’t see with the naked eye and bringing it to canvas. If you can look beyond the surface, you can capture a mood or write a story with one shot.
Sometimes weather doesn’t cooperate, but that’s part of the thrill of making memories.
Extraordinary is everywhere. I simply bring it to light and make it art.
